The teeth in your smile allow you to accomplish many tasks throughout the day. You may chew food successfully, speak articulately, and share your smile with the world thanks to your teeth. Your jawbone also remains healthy in part because of your teeth and their roots. When you bite down or chew, your roots anchor your teeth, while stimulating your jaw. This stimulation results in a steady flow of nutrients that keep jawbone tissue healthy and supportive. By choosing dental implants, you replace not only the visible portion of your smile but also your roots, which work behind the scenes to offer incredible stability and continued oral health.

Dental Implants

What Is A Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium post that restores your tooth’s roots. We will place an abutment within the top of your dental implant, which will connect a dental crown or other restoration to the post for a stable single tooth replacement. Patients may opt instead to replace multiple teeth at once with strategically placed implants, which support a complete or partial denture.

What Can I Expect?

We will examine your mouth and jaw visually and with advanced digital imaging to verify that your jawbone is dense and strong enough to support dental implants. Patients suffering from jaw damage may first require bone grafting for improved jaw health. A board-certified periodontist will surgically implant the post into your jawbone in our office. Over several months, your gums will heal and the implant will fuse to your bone during a process called osseointegration. We will then restore your implant according to your customized care plan.

Dental Implants Benefits

Restoring your complete tooth from the roots up offers you a wealth of benefits both cosmetic- and oral health-related. Become familiar with the advantages of dental implants:

  • Dental implants provide unsurpassable stability when compared with other dental prosthetics like dental bridges or dentures
  • You may indulge in your favorite foods without worry of slippage or breakage
  • You will enjoy clear enunciation
  • Implants may last the rest of your life
  • Implants act as placeholders, preventing your natural smile from becoming misaligned in the wake of tooth loss
