From Tooth Loss to an Attractive Smile
When a single tooth is replaced, the process begins by surgically placing the implant in your jawbone. This surgery has been pre-planned digitally and is carried out using custom surgical guides and software for ultimate predictability and success. During the next two to six months, this titanium post begins bonding to the jawbone to serve as an anchor for the artificial tooth or teeth. Once the initial healing period is complete, an abutment will be added. This will be the foundation on which the replacement tooth will sit. There will be another healing period following this procedure, allowing the gums to recover. The final stage of the process is adding the actual crown or artificial tooth. If not completed by your dentist, our in-office lab technician expertly creates our implant restorations conveniently at our location. Best of all, it is standard implant treatment that you return to the office to receive detailed home care instructions to ensure you learn how to protect your investment and keep your smile functional and healthy for the rest of your life.
Teeth Designed For Life
Dental implants provide several advantages over other procedures. In addition to looking and feeling like a natural tooth, a dental implant can be a safe way to restore a single tooth without compromising the health of neighboring teeth. The actual implant can last many years, or even a lifetime with proper dental care, making them a cost-efficient alternative to other options of tooth replacement. Dental implants replace the root of the tooth as well, which is beneficial for bone care. They integrate with the jawbone, which helps to keep the bone healthy and intact. Aesthetically, dental implants can look more natural than a bridge and can be easier to keep white and clean. With these long-term benefits permanently in place with dental implants, you can enjoy a life of better function, health, and confidence!
