We always strive to keep your natural teeth forever, but sometimes due to dental disease, trauma, periodontal disease, naturally missing teeth, and other factors, we have to replace missing teeth.

Dental implants are used to replace a single missing tooth, missing teeth, complete arches, or anchor removable dentures. Implants are generally made of titanium, anchored to the jawbone and act as a foundation for dental implant crowns as well as other permanent dental prostheses. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures for a more secure fit.

Before the development of dental implants, bridges (fixed prosthetics) or dentures (removable prosthetics) were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.

Dental implants are generally made of titanium and are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored and integrated into the jawbone and act as a foundation for a dental implant crown, permanent bridge, or full arch prosthesis. 

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to integrate, a candidate must have proper bone density and a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene and management of risk factors.

Oral surgery is necessary to prepare the area and place the dental implant. Following surgery, a period of time, generally 3-6 months, is required for the dental implant to integrate and fully heal. It is extremely important that the implant fully integrates before it is restored with a dental implant crown or dental prosthesis. 

Because implants require surgery, we work closely with our excellent oral surgeons to place implants exactly where we need them to deliver our patients a great final result. 

Dental implant crowns will be placed on your implants after the healing process is completed following the surgical placement of your implants. Dental implant crowns are either cement-retained or screw-retained. 

Like any restoration, dental implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time. You must treat them just like a natural tooth to help ensure their long-term success. 

The total time for the entire implant process (surgery and restorative services) will take several months to ensure the proper long lasting result.
