Dental implants are permanent devices that screw into the jaw and act as replacement tooth roots. They create a solid foundation for a customized fake tooth that is either permanent or removable and fits seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
During the placement of an implant, a small titanium rod is screwed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. As the jaw heals, it grows around the implant, fixing the rod into place. Once the jawbone has healed, another piece is attached to the rod to secure the tooth.
Loose dentures can cause you to miss out on your favorite foods and can cause self-consciousness while smiling or talking. With small implants placed in the jaw, your dentures can be better secured for flawless eating and conversation without having to worry about your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
Candidacy for dental implants often depends on several factors. Healthy individuals who have good gum health and enough bone in the jaw to hold an implant are often approved for this procedure, although some contraindicating medical conditions may require further evaluation such as diabetes, heart disease, and smoking.
During your consultation, our doctors will perform a comprehensive exam of your teeth using digital x-rays in order to determine the best course of treatment for you.
Implants are meant to last for several years, but they can be affected by improper oral hygiene. Patients who receive implants should be prepared to brush and floss regularly and maintain proper dental care as well as schedule routine visits to our doctors for cleanings and checkups.
Typically, the jawbone takes about 12 weeks to heal, but this may vary depending on the patient and the extent of the procedure. Before your dental surgery, our doctors will advise you on any pre-and post-surgical instructions you will need to know and monitor your new implant through follow-up appointments.
