Dental implants are an excellent way to replace missing teeth, and provide a fixed solution to having a removable complete or partial denture. Implants provide support and stability for secure dental restorations.


Advantages of Implants

  • Eliminate need for a removable denture

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without effecting neighboring teeth

  • Securely holding a bridge or denture, making them more comfortable

  • Restore ability to smile with confidence

  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems created by teeth shifting into missing tooth space

  • Enhanced ability for chewing, speech, and digestion 


Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth that are surgically placed into the upper and/or lower jaw bone by an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist.  Teeth attached to the implants are very natural looking and enhance or restore a persons ability to smile and eat with confidence.  Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable.  They will last for many years, but on occasion they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.


What is involved in getting dental implant?

X-rays are taken of the jaws and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and space available for an implant.  While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone.  The implant will be  left alone and allowed to heal for up to six months. During this time the implant will integrate (fuse) with the bone.  On occasion, a second minor follow-up surgery is required to clean away some excessive gum tissue that overgrows the implant during the healing period.  Once integrated, the patient returns to the dentist to  begin the restorative phase of treatment.  Depending on the type of final restoration to be fabricated this may require several fittings and could take up to one or two months.  When completed, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.
