DENTAL IMPLANTS

85% of people you meet create an opinion whether they like you or not initially based upon your smile.  Clean, straight, and white teeth are the calling card of confidence.  Even a single missing tooth can prevent you from feeling bold and brave – or from even speaking due to insecurity about your smile being less than perfect.  Tooth loss happens to many people for a variety of reasons.  Tooth decay, gum disease, and trauma are a just few of the reasons that may cause a tooth to be lost.  In order to avoid issues with chewing or damage to adjacent teeth, dental implants are the preferred, permanent option for tooth loss.  Dental implants are a the most durable and functional tooth replacement option and one of the most successful restorative procedures.

Following a series of radiographs (x-rays) with our advanced 3D technology, the doctor will determine the optimal placement for the implant.  The implant itself is a titanium post that replaces the root of your missing tooth, an abutment attaches to the implant, which is then covered with a crown. Once the implant has been placed, additional appointments for restoration procedures for crown abutment and crown attaching will be scheduled.

Dental implants are very convenient, because they function similar to a natural tooth and don’t require any restrictions.  They are indistinguishable from neighboring teeth and are a great option to prevent jawbone loss or other teeth to shift.

With proper oral care, a dental implant can last a lifetime and give you a full, healthy smile.
