Dental Implants

A dental implant is a restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth as a result of injury, periodontal disease, or any other reason

  • Consist of a titanium post that acts as an artificial tooth root, abutment which attaches the crown to the post, and the final crown which looks and acts like a natural tooth

  • Generally takes 3 – 6 months to complete the process from start to finish to allow time for the bone to heal around the implant

  • Are sometimes more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement such as bridges,  but they provide superior benefits and can last up to a lifetime, while most bridges average a 5 – 10 year span

  • Do not depend on neighboring teeth for support, so no healthy teeth are affected
