What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots surgically inserted into the jawbone, designed to mimic natural teeth. By fusing with the jawbone over time, they provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth or dental prosthetics. Dental implants consist of three parts: the post, placed into the jawbone to serve as the new tooth root; the abutment, which connects the post to the restoration; and the restoration, which is the visible part of the implant.

Our team has the experience to offer you tooth implants for various implant needs. We can provide oral implants ranging from single crowns to multi-tooth implants. Our implant restorations include:

  • Single Tooth Crowns: Our office will provide you with a single-tooth crown restoration when replacing only one tooth. Your dentist will insert the post into the jaw and place a crown on top.
  • Bridges: We will use a bridge restoration when replacing three or more teeth in a row. Bridges are supported by dental implants on the outside of your gap of teeth.
  • Dentures: Dentures are used to replace up to full arches of missing teeth. Dental implants support the dentures making them sturdy and long lasting.
  • All-on-6: Our dentist performs an all-on-6 procedure using only six implants to support a full arch of dental restorations. This allows for a faster healing time, as only six implants support the entire restoration.

Why Choose Our Office?

Our office is committed to providing a high-quality, seamless dental implant experience. We handle both the placement and restoration of your dental implants in-house along with any pretreatments, eliminating the need to visit multiple offices. Utilizing a CBCT scanner, we produce detailed 3D scans of your mouth and jawbone for accurate diagnosis. We also use computer-guided surgery to deliver precise implant placement and lasting results.

Pretreatments for Dental Implants

Before receiving a dental implant, our dentist will perform a consultation to determine both your oral and jawbone health. If we determine that your mouth is not healthy or strong enough to support your tooth implant, a pretreatment might be needed. We offer several pretreatments in our office, such as:

  • Bone Grafts: Our office will perform a bone graft if your jawbone is too thin to support your dental implant. Our dentist will insert additional bone into your jaw's weakened areas to create a stable foundation for your new dental implant restoration.
  • Extractions: Our office strives to save your natural teeth whenever possible, but if a tooth has too much damage or decay, it must be extracted to make room for your new tooth implant. Our dentist will remove your tooth before starting dental implant treatment.
