If you have missing or damaged teeth, then dental implants are an excellent way to restore your smile.
Whereas tooth-supported bridges are designed to last as long as 10 years, dental implants can last much longer with proper care. A dental implant looks, feels, and operates just like the tooth it replaces so that you can feel confident with your smile once again.
Dental implants offer a number of benefits for your mouth, including the prevention of bone deterioration. An empty space in the bone from a missing tooth can lead to bone loss and other issues that are remedied with the placement of an implant. Additionally, you do not have to worry about cavities in an implant, so with proper care, they really can last a lifetime.
We will work closely with you to determine if a dental implant is the right choice. Our skilled and experienced staff will address any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure so that you can feel confident. After a thorough evaluation, we will take pictures and molds of your teeth to create a custom implant designed just for you. This increases comfort and ensures a successful procedure.
The procedure for placing dental implants typically involves two surgeries over the course of several months. The first procedure is to insert the implant into the jawbone and give it a chance to bond. The next procedure is to uncover the implants and place a small healing collar over them. After that, the replacement tooth can be fitted. All of this occurs with minimal disruption to your daily life and normal routine. With just a couple of procedures, your smile will be back to normal permanently.
