About Dental Implants 

Dental implants are small metal frames, or posts, that are surgically placed beneath your gums to provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth. Dental implants can enhance a person’s smile and more. Some of the benefits of dental implants include:

  • Replacement for one or more teeth without affecting the surrounding teeth
  • Improve facial appearance
  • Restore chewing, speech and digestion
  • Make a bridge or denture more durable, secure and comfortable
  • Resolve joint pain  

What To Expect From Dental Implant Surgery

Numerous visits will occur to determine the proper and most efficient treatment plan for your case before we actually perform the dental implant surgery. These appointments will include x-rays and taking impressions to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for the implant. When surgery time comes, we will numb the entire area where we will insert the dental implants and place the implant in the bone. This procedure is painless and relatively quick. In about 3 to 4 months, the area will heal and the dental implant will combine with your jawbone and begin acting as the root of the tooth.
