Dental Implants Procedure

The loss of one or more teeth can have a major impact on the function and shape of your mouth and the appearance of your smile. An increasingly popular and proven treatment to address this is the dental implant, which is a man-made root, made of surgical titanium that is placed into the upper or lower jaw. On top of this implant is placed a crown, non-removable bridge or removable bridge such as a denture. Dental Implants look like real teeth. You can chew, brush and most importantly, eat like normal. With proper care, Dental Implants will last a lifetime.

One of the benefits of an implant is that teeth next to the space being filled by the implant remain untouched. Implants help to protect remaining teeth from loss or drifting, prevent bone loss and improve tooth function and overall health.

Dental Implant Procedures

Implants can:

  • Replace single/several teeth
  • Replacing all teeth: An implant-supported bridge or denture can replace all of your missing teeth.
  • Restore Chewing & Speech

Implants are placed during a simple, short surgical procedure done under local anesthetic or sedation if you choose to do so.
