Implants

Dental implantsDental implants are a great solution for patients who have lost teeth to injury, gum disease or tooth decay. They are essentially “new teeth” that can be used to eat and talk easily without the risk of the implants falling out. Many patients have found their implants to be life changing.

Implants are made from different types of metallic and bone-like ceramic materials that are compatible with body tissue. They look and feel like natural teeth and will last much longer than dentures. They are attached to the jawbone, so it is nearly impossible for someone to tell that they are not your real teeth.

The procedure can be broken down into three simple steps.

  1. Small metal anchors are inserted into the jawbone to serve as “roots” for the implant.
  2. Small titanium posts are attached to the anchors.
  3. The implants, or replacement teeth, are attached directly to the titanium posts.

The implant process can take six to eight months to complete, but each procedure will not normally interrupt your typical schedule.
