Dental Implants
Dental implants are able to change the way you live your life!. The dental implants are designed to provide a solid foundation for replacement prosthetic or permanent teeth. The replacement teeth will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. One who has lost teeth can regain the ability to eat nearly anything they desire, knowing that their teeth are strong, look natural and that their facial contours will be perfectly preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence, knowing no one else will notice.

Dental Implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, providing the needed support to one's dentures or other replacement products. Over time the jawbone will attach itself to the inserted implant. Once this happens,  small posts can be fastened to the implant. Reconstructive dental work can take place via crowns or bridges or other replacement teeth can then be attached permanently into place.

For many patients, the insertion of dental implants is composed of two procedures. First, through a surgical procedure, the implants are placed into your jawbone. For three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums and will slowly bond with the jawbone. You should be able to comfortably wear temporary dentures and eat a softer diet during this time.During this time, your dentist is preparing your new replacement teeth.

After your implant has attached to the jawbone, you will move to the second phase. Our doctor will uncover the implants and carefully attach small the posts that will act as anchors for replacement teeth. When the artificial teeth are in place, these posts will completely hidden. These two phases usually take a total of six to eight months. Most patients will experience very minimal changes in their daily life.
