What are dental implants?

Dental implants are metal or ceramic posts that are placed in the jawbone, in an area that would normally be occupied by the root of your missing tooth. Over time, your bone and tissue will grow around the post, creating a strong foundation for the placement of an artificial tooth. Once your smile is restored with permanent dental implants and artificial teeth, you can expect to enjoy a wide range of appealing benefits, including:

Are dental implants right for you?

Although many of our implant patients are interested in restoring their smiles with dental implants, they aren’t ideal for every client. In general, you will need to possess healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant in order to qualify for the procedure. You’ll also need to be committed to maintaining your follow-up visits with our office and practicing optimal oral hygiene moving forward, to ensure that your dental implants remain in optimal condition for years to come.
