Dental implants provide a solution for replacing a missing tooth/teeth. They serve as an artificial replacement/or prothetic for the tooth’s root and can restore strength, functionality and support to the mouth and jawbone.
The implants are surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone. When attached, an implant will look and feel like a natural tooth and will enhance and restore your smile.
Dental implants can:
- Replace missing teeth
- Prevent teeth from shifting
- Restore your smile
- Restore the ability to bite, chew and speak properly
- Support a bridge or denture
The process of receiving dental implants may require several appointememts over several months. During these visits you may expect the following procedures: X-rays, impressions (molds), surgically placed implants (including placement of the post and anchor), and the fitting and attachment of artificial teeth.
During the procedures, numbing techniques will be applied to your mouth to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Time for healing between visits is needed to ensure that your implant and artificial teeth are securely attached. This will provide you with optimal functionality and comfort after the process is over. To learn more about our dental implant services, contact us now.
