Dental implants are a versatile way to treat missing teeth and provide a permanent solution that restores both the function and the appearance of your smile. If you’re contemplating getting dental implants, you’ve come to the right place. Our team has given many, many patients the results they want with this restorative dental procedure!

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth that mimic the look and function of natural teeth. During the dental implant procedure, we surgically implant a biocompatible titanium post into your jaw to serve as an anchor for a future dental crown. Once the surgical site heals and the titanium is integrated into your jawbone, we attach a custom-created crown designed to match your natural teeth. Once the process is complete, you’ll have a smile that is beautiful and seamless.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

If you’re looking for a long-lasting treatment for missing teeth that is convenient and reliable, dental implants are a great option. With the right care, dental implants can last fifteen years, or longer! Dental implants cannot get decay or a cavity, but they do require the same superb oral hygiene as your natural teeth. You should continue to brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes each time, floss each day, and visit our office regularly for cleanings and exams. Healthy gums are critical, as gum disease can compromise the integrity of your implant.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

Whether you are looking to replace just one tooth or are looking to replace an entire arch, dental implants may be able to deliver the results you want. Our patients like the functionality and easy maintenance of dental implants. With dental implants, you do not need to worry about issues with fit or placement that would occur with dentures. They are anchored to your jawbone and will not move around.
