Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth.

The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, where a screw is placed into the jaw bone by a local Oral Surgeon. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured.

The implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have temporary crowns placed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.

After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment and crown on the implant. This procedure is done in our office. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. Once this is placed an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your porcelain fused to metal crown. We will have to send your impression out to a local lab. Once the crown is returned from the lab you will return to the office to insert the restoration permanently. Your smile will look just like it used to (if not better), and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
