Implant Restorations

Dental Implants

     Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that are similar to a natural tooth.  The implant is placed in the jawbone under local anesthesia, then allowed to heal and integrate with the bone, this procedure will be done by an oral surgeon or a periodontist, which is a specialist in gum issues.  Once the healing process is completed, you will return to our office and the implant is fitted with a crown.  This process generally takes anywhere from three to six months.

     Implants can replace one or more missing teeth.  They can also be used to anchor full or partial dentures.  Implants are good replacements for missing teeth but they are not an option for everyone.  If you are considering an implant please call our office for an evaluation to see if you would be a good candidate.‚Äč
