What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. They can be used to replace a single lost tooth or multiple missing teeth. 

The implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone and then bonds with the natural bone to serve as an anchor for a tooth replacement. 

Dental implants can help to prevent surrounding teeth from shifting, resolve bite issues or jaw joint pain, and help restore facial tissues and appearance.

Why Replace Missing Teeth

If a tooth is missing, the teeth around the gap may begin to shift out of place and cause misalignment. The surrounding jaw bone may begin to deteriorate, resulting in facial collapse or negatively impacting your ability to speak and eat.

The Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant procedure requires a dental implant (titanium screw) and a tooth replacement. 

Your dentist will begin by surgically placing the implant into your jawbone below the gum tissue. As the tissue heals, the implant bonds with the bone and attaches to the gums.

Once the healing is complete, generally 3 to 6 months post-surgery, patients return to our office to complete the procedure. 

At your last appointment, your dentist will attach a tooth replacement, such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture to the implant to create the look and function of a natural tooth.
