Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth and root replacement that is fixed in the mouth and resembles a natural tooth. When a tooth must be extracted due to damage or decay, a dental implant is the strongest and most long lasting restoration available.

Dental Implants are an option used for patients who want to replace missing teeth. A titanium post is placed into the bone of the jaw in the location of the missing teeth. From there an artificial tooth, such as a crown, can be secured to the implant. In some cases, when many teeth are missing, dentures can be attached to the implants. With only a few implants, we can sometimes secure existing dentures to the implants and change a loose, uncomfortable one to a secure, well-fitting and comfortable denture.

  • Dental implants are made over a series of visits with one of our dentists and our in-office periodontist.
  • They are usually made of a combination of porcelain and metal.
  • The root portion of the implant is inserted in the office; the tooth portion of the implant is made in a dental lab, based on an impression that we make of your prepared tooth. The tooth portion is inserted later, after a healing period.
  • An implant is brushed and flossed just like a natural tooth.
