Adult Dental Implants
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Artificial tooth implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to disease or injury and are an important aspect of restorative dentistry.
Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post. Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last a lifetime.

Not only does a dental implant fill unsightly gaps in a smile, but they are also important to deter bone loss which will occur when a tooth is lost. The titanium post fuses with the bone preventing it from dissolving.
A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options, including:
Prevent Bone Loss
When a tooth is missing the bone in the jaw begins to deteriorate. Dental implants provide the jawbone with the proper stimulation for healthy bone preservation.
Natural-looking, feeling and functioning Teeth
– As soon as we place an implant, most patients are surprised that they can’t tell the difference between the implanted tooth and their natural teeth.
While a bridge usually requires a grinding down of two adjacent teeth, dental implants are placed without any damage to your other teeth.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to replacing your missing teeth. Dental implants are made of titanium which is non-corrosive and non-harmful.
