If you are missing teeth, then dental implants could be a solution for you. Widely regarded as the longest-lasting and most successful replacement option, implants can support crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Patients who undergo this treatment at our practice can complete the process in just a few visits. First, the implants must be placed into the jawbone. Once this step is finished, three to six months of healing are generally required.
After the implant has healed, a small connector post – called an abutment – is added. This portion extends just beyond the gum line, providing an anchor for your restoration.
Once a dental implant is restored, it can be cleaned and used just like a natural tooth. Routine dental visits are necessary to maintain the condition of your implant and ensure optimal oral health.
