Understanding Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gum line, serving as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges, implants do not come loose or require adjustment to neighboring teeth for support. They are an ideal option for those in good general oral health who have lost teeth due to periodontal disease, injury or other reasons.

The Dental Implant Process

The dental implant process involves several steps, starting with a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for implants. This includes assessing your oral health and jawbone density. The implant post is then surgically placed into the jawbone, where it will integrate with the bone over a few months. Once the implant has bonded with the jawbone, a small connector post, or abutment, is attached to securely hold the new tooth. The final step involves attaching the custom-made replacement tooth (crown) to the abutment, completing your smile restoration.
