Dental Implants

A Fresh Look

Dental implants are an appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are an excellent choice 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. Multiple implants can be placed at once if needed.
The implant is allowed to heal and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time, if you like, a temporary crown can be placed for aesthetics.
After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. Once this is placed, an impression of the abutment is taken and used to create your crown restoration. Your smile will look like it used to, or probable better. The implant will feel like one of your own teeth.
