What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are made up of titanium posts that resemble screws that are implanted beneath the gums. These titanium rods then fuse to your jawbone, giving you a permanent, stable foundation for replacement teeth. If you have one or more missing teeth and would like a permanent restoration, you may be the right candidate for a dental implant.

Why Do You Need a Dental Implant?

If you are missing one or more teeth and would like a more permanent solution that looks and feels exactly like natural teeth, dental implants may be the right option for you. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, this can cause jawbone deterioration, which will ultimately change your facial structure and make you look older. With a dental implant, your jawbone will be preserved, and you will have a strong teeth that will give you the confidence to smile.

What Makes You the Ideal Candidate for Dental Implants?

The placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. In order for the implant to be successful, the titanium rod must be able to properly fuse with your jawbone. In order for this to happen, you must not have a condition that prevents you from healing properly. For your first visit, you will undergo a dental/radiographic examination and we will look at your health history to ensure that your procedure will be a success.
