What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone. These posts behave just like natural tooth roots, stimulating the jawbone and serving as an anchor for synthetic teeth. After the posts are placed and the bone is healed, your implants will be restored with replacement teeth.
The Dental Implant Procedure
Dr. Green and his team will work with you to design an individualized dental implant treatment plan. We will take your health, comfort, and financial needs into account while we tailor a procedure that is right for you. We provide sedation dentistry, patient amenities, and recovery assistance to ensure that you enjoy a pleasant procedure.
The first step of the dental implant process is the surgical placement of the titanium posts. Healing time requires 6-8 months, but patients report minimal disruptions in their day-to-day activities during their recoveries.
The replacement teeth you choose will depend on your preferences and severity of tooth loss. For patients missing only one tooth, a dental crown is usually the best choice for single implant restoration. Patients missing several teeth may choose a dental bridge or permanent dentures to fill the spaces in their smile.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Stronger Jaw: Dental implants take on the functions of natural tooth roots and teeth. They will stimulate the jawbone so that it does not begin to deteriorate. You can maintain the ability and appearance of your youthful jaw for a lifetime when you choose dental implants.
Varied Diet: Dental implants are equally strong to natural teeth. You can bite into any food you’d like at anytime without worrying about damaging your replacement teeth.
Brighter Days: You may notice a transformation in your social interactions and work experiences once you have a full and complete smile again. With a beautiful smile, you can face the world with new confidence every day.
