Most people have lost a tooth by midlife. Tooth loss is most commonly due to periodontal disease, tooth decay, and dental trauma. Failure to replace lost teeth can lead to more dental problems. However, losing a tooth no longer has to mean missing out on a great-looking smile. Dental implants offer the most natural restorations possible. Our dentist can help you decide if implants are right for you.

Implants are most commonly made of titanium, a biocompatible material that integrates with the bone structure of the jaw and will not irritate the gum tissue. At your consultation, our dental team will examine your teeth and gums to ensure that dental implants are the right choice for you. Most patients who have lost one or more teeth can benefit from implants, especially if they have:

  • Otherwise good dental health
  • Good general health
  • Adequate bone density at the implant site

The procedure can take several months from the initial consultation to the final restoration. After determining your candidacy, we will develop your treatment plan. Our dentist will take a series of records, which may include X-rays, photographs, dental impressions, and digital images, to plan the best way of moving forward with the surgical implantation of the dental implants.

Most implants are shaped like screws or rods, which allow them to closely mimic the natural shape of a tooth’s root. During the implant surgery, the gums are opened, and the bone is prepared to receive the implant. The device is implanted into the bone tissue, and the gum tissues are stitched closed again. As you heal, the bone will fuse with the dental implant. This results in a strong, root-like support for the replacement. Once the implant site has fully healed, an abutment, or connector, will be attached so that the prosthetic tooth or teeth can complete the restoration.

Dental implants can be restored using several types of restorations based on your needs, including dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. Our dentist will recommend specific restorations depending on the number of teeth you have lost and your treatment goals. Call our office today to find out more about implants or to schedule your consultation with our dental team.
