Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.
Thanks to ever-evolving dental technology, dental implants make it so the person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants are tiny titanium posts which are placed into the jaw bone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for replacement teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants do not require tooth shaving, as bridges do. Leaving your natural teeth intact improves your long-term oral health. Implants are great for single tooth and multiple teeth replacement.
Our dentist will first evaluate if you are eligible for dental implants. Once cleared, the dentist will locally anesthetize the area and embed the implant to integrate into your bone. After the healing period, the dentist will be able to place a crown on your implant to restore the missing area. The entire treatment process is typically an out-patient procedure, meaning you will be able to drive yourself to and from any appointment involved.
