Implants

Typical Length:
Case Dependent

Dental implants are metal posts surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums to provide stable support for artificial teeth. Some people who have lost bone in their jaw can still get implants, but first, the bone must be augmented with a bone graft. Dentures and bridges mounted to dental implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth, making you feel more comfortable and confident about eating and speaking. After receiving implants, regular follow-up visits are essential.

What To Expect

Comprehensive Consultation

During your initial visit, our team will assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and create a personalized treatment plan. We'll use dental imaging to ensure your jawbone can support the implants and address any medical conditions or concerns you may have.

Precise Implant Placement

The implant procedure involves surgically inserting a titanium post into your jawbone, serving as a sturdy foundation for your new tooth. This phase includes healing time for the post to fuse with your jawbone, ensuring a stable and lasting result.

Customized Restoration

Once the implant has integrated with your jawbone, we'll place a custom-made porcelain crown that matches your natural teeth. This final step restores the appearance and function of your smile, giving you confidence in your daily activities.
