A Functional Tooth Replacement

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. They can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. 

The implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone and then bonds with the natural bone to serve as an anchor for a tooth replacement. 

Dental implants can help to prevent surrounding teeth from shifting, resolve bite issues or jaw joint pain, and help restore facial tissues and appearance.

Dental implants can be a long-lasting solution that can improve quality of life for people. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime and provide a natural-looking and functioning tooth replacement.

Why Replace Missing Teeth

If a tooth is missing, the teeth surrounding the gap may begin to shift out of place and cause misalignment issues. The jaw bone around the area may also begin to deteriorate, resulting in facial collapse or negatively impacting your ability to eat and talk.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Dental Implants are provided by our periodontist who is specialized in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement of dental implants.  The dental implant procedure requires a dental implant (titanium screw) and a tooth replacement. Your periodontist will begin by surgically placing the implant into your jaw bone below the gum tissue.

As the tissue heals, the implant bonds with the bone and attaches to the gums. Once the healing is complete, generally 3 to 6 months post-surgery, patients return to our office to complete the procedure.
