Our implant dentists both place and restore dental implants. We know your time is valuable, so we are trained and equipped to offer comprehensive care for your convenience.
Most commonly, dental implants are small anchors made of a biocompatible metal, titanium. An implant is placed in the jawbone and replaces a “tooth root” in the mouth.
Dental implants have revolutionized tooth replacement. They have very high success rates. Implants are considered the best long-term tooth replacement option. In most cases, dental implants last 25+ years to life with proper maintenance.
Within a few months of placement, the implants fuse with the bone. After the fusing process, known as osseointegration, abutment posts are inserted into the anchors to allow for the permanent attachment of a replacement tooth.
Implants provide a strong foundation for tooth replacement and help maintain bone to prevent the sunken-in appearance often associated with long-term tooth and bone loss. They also maintain chewing force and speech, allowing you to enjoy life as with natural teeth.
