What are Dental Implants?

The loss of one or more permanent teeth can impact a person's ability to chew, speak, and smile.

Dental implants are long-lasting, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or entire dental arches. The titanium dental implant post is surgically implanted into the jawbone at the location of the missing tooth. It restores the missing tooth root and guarantees the stability of your dental repair. Often, a period of healing is required before the bone can begin to fuse with the biocompatible post.


After this period of recovery, our dentists will put the dental implant restoration, also known as the replacement tooth, on top of the implant post. Your implant repair could be a dental crown, dental bridge, or a whole or partial denture, depending on which teeth are lost and your individual dental needs. Each dental implant repair is aesthetically and comfortably tailored to the patient's smile.

Replacing a missing tooth can restore the health, function, and aesthetics of your smile. A dental implant is an excellent alternative for rebuilding your smile since it is designed to seem, operate, and feel much like your original teeth, and it can last a lifetime with regular maintenance.
