Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth and provide an effective means of anchoring removable dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances. We will schedule a consultation with you to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants.
Under local anesthesia, your dentist will place a special titanium implant into your jawbone. This implant will act as the tooth’s root. Over the course of several months and with the help of titanium’s unique properties, the implant fuses to the bone in a process called “osseointegration.” When osseointegration is complete, your dentist will secure onto the implant a custom synthetic tooth designed to match your other teeth in size, shape and color.
Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable. As long as your jaw remains healthy and intact, the implant may very well last a lifetime.
