What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small, titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. Implants can replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. 

The implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone, which allows it to bond with the natural bone and serve as an anchor for a tooth replacement, usually a crown or bridge. Once healed, a dental implant looks and functions much like a natural tooth!

There are many benefits to replacing a missing tooth. When a tooth is missing, the teeth surrounding the gap may begin to shift out of place. The jaw bone around the area may also begin to deteriorate, resulting in a caved-in facial appearance or negatively impacting your ability to eat and talk.

The Dental Implant Process

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

At the first appointment, the implant is surgically placed below the gumline. This procedure is typically done under local anesthesia and involves inserting a titanium post into the jaw bone to serve as a foundation for the artificial tooth.

After the procedure, a healing period is necessary to allow the implant to fuse with the jaw bone. This generally lasts between three and six months.

Once healing is complete, you will return to our office so a crown or bridge can be fitted on top of the implant. Our dentists take great care to help ensure that your dental implant is the right fit.
