What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a substitute tooth root made of titanium that allows a person to return to a fixed tooth.  A single tooth or full arch of teeth which have been lost due to injury or disease can be replaced with dental implants.  Cosmetic appearance, longevity, treatment time, and cost are factors which may make a dental implant the preferred choice.

A dental implant is placed in the area of the missing tooth.  The healing process begins with bone growing around the titanium structure, anchoring it securely into place.  This process can take from 2 to 6 months.  Once the dental implant is integrated, you will be directed to contact your general dentist.  Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth, and create a model of your bite (which captures all of your teeth, their shape, and arrangement).  Your new tooth or teeth are based on this model.  Your general dentist will also match the color of your new teeth to your natural teeth.  We work closely with your general dentist to accomplish your dental goals. By working as a team, we promise you our best.
