Dental Implants
 

                        
Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to replace the missing tooth.

The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, where the titanium implant is placed into the jaw bone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured closed.

The implant is generally allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you may have a temporary appliance so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.

After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. Once this is placed an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration. The impression will be sent to an outside lab. Once the restoration is completed you will return to the office for placement of the new crown. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
