Dental implants offer the same support as your natural teeth which is unparalleled by other tooth-replacement options. From start to finish, your dental implants will take approximately three to six months to heal. They are an excellent option if you are missing teeth and still have adequate bone and healthy gum tissue.
Placing Your Dental Implants
If we determine that you are a good candidate for dental implants, you will undergo minor implant surgery. During a brief procedure, the titanium post will be surgically placed into your jawbone. Over the course of the next several months, the jaw and gum tissue will heal and bone cells will integrate around the post, creating a sturdy tooth root to hold a tooth, your new dental restoration.
Once your implants have healed, we will affix cosmetic dentistry restorations to the top of your implants. There are several options for tooth replacement restorations, including dental bridges, full or partial dentures, and porcelain crowns. For all of these different restorations, dental implants provide an excellent support base that ensures your teeth will remain in place, permanently.
