Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. They are small titanium screws that are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they act as a replacement for the root of a missing tooth. The implant is then topped with a porcelain crown, which looks and functions like a natural tooth.
Dental implants offer several benefits over other tooth replacement options, such as bridges or dentures. Because they are anchored directly into the jawbone, dental implants are stable and secure, allowing patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. They also do not require the alteration of healthy adjacent teeth, as is the case with bridges. In addition, dental implants can help preserve the jawbone, preventing it from deteriorating and maintaining a natural, healthy appearance.
Our dental implants service begins with a consultation, during which we will evaluate your oral health and determine if dental implants are the right option for you. If they are, we will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your needs and goals.
The next step in the process is the surgical placement of the dental implants. This is typically performed under local anesthesia, so you will be comfortable during the procedure. After the implants are in place, they will need time to heal and integrate with the jawbone, a process that can take several months.
Once the implants have fully integrated, we will attach the porcelain crowns to the implants. These crowns are custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless, natural-looking result.
