What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are used as replacement tooth roots, allowing our team to securely place replacement teeth or a bridge in the area of concern. Implants are titanium posts placed beneath the gum line in the jawbone through a surgical procedure. Unlike a traditional denture, a dental implant will not come loose. This means you can enjoy a permanent restoration and eat, chew, and speak with confidence.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants are entirely safe, and once they are surgically attached, your gums immediately begin to heal. By the end of the healing process, your jawbone accepts the dental implant as a part of the body. Once your mouth has recovered, we then attach a metal post to the implant. This is the point of attachment where devices such as bridges, crowns, or dentures will be mounted.

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants?

  • Implants are more durable than traditional dentures
  • Because they’re permanently attached to your jaw, implants function just like natural teeth
  • Replacement teeth are designed using lifelike porcelain for natural-looking results
  • Implants fuse with your jawbone for a permanent restoration

Do Dental Implants Hurt?

As with any surgical procedure, some pain or discomfort can be expected. We’ll do everything we can to make the procedure as painless and stress-free as possible, and the dentist will happily discuss all your concerns before your surgery. Following an implant procedure, be sure to eat soft foods and give your mouth a chance to recover and adjust.
