Dental Implants

If you need to replace one or more missing or weakened teeth, dental implants can be the solution!

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, to which replacement teeth are attached. In many cases, a dental implant is a better choice than a bridge (which compromises the two teeth surrounding the missing tooth). Implants are stable, permanent fixtures, which can last years and which often function better than dentures or partial dentures.

The dental implant procedure typically involves:

  • tooth extraction (if the weakened or broken tooth is still in place)
  • surgical placement of the dental implant into the jaw bone
  • placement of a temporary restoration on top of the implant
  • time for the dental implant attach to the bone and heal
  • placement of a permanent restoration (crown)

Dental implants can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.
