Dental Implants
Write Review

Dental implants may be right for you if you are missing teeth or wearing dentures. Implants are used in the upper and lower jaws and are made of titanium and other materials that are well-suited for the human body. They attach to the jawbone and gum tissue to become a stable base for one or more custom artificial replacement teeth.

 

Treatment is a three-part process that takes several months. In the first step, the implant is surgically placed in the jaw, with the top of the implant slightly above the top of the bone. A screw is inserted into the implant to prevent gum tissue and other dibris from entering. The gum is then secured over the implant and will remain covered for about 3-6 months while it fuses with the bone. Second step - the implant is uncovered and an extension or post is attached. Once healed, the implant and post can serve as the foundation for the new tooth. Third and final step - your crown is fit and colored to blend with your other teeth. The crown is then attached to the implant.

 

If you are in good health and have healthy gums and adequate bone to support an implant, implants may be right for you.
