Effective Treatment for Missing Teeth
If you are missing a single tooth or have several missing teeth, you may be the perfect candidate for dental implants. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants offers numerous benefits to our patients because results are permanent and there is no more risk of jaw bone loss.
Getting Dental Implants for Your Tooth Replacement Procedure
We perform dental implant surgery under local anesthesia and may use digital technologies and advanced equipment to ensure proper placement and insertion into the jawbone. The abutment of the implant is attached to the titanium post and creates a foundation for a custom crown on top. Any healing or swelling from surgery will subside in a few days.
As the area heals, the implant will integrate with the surrounding jaw bone in a process called osseointegration. It is this fusion that allows the implant to be stable and secure for up to a lifetime of wear.
