If you have lost one or more teeth, your remaining teeth may shift, rotate, or become crooked, giving you an uneven bite and unwanted spaces that can make chewing food more painful and home Dental care more difficult. Whether you need to replace one tooth or a whole jaw, Dental implants are designed to help restore teeth to their natural form and function. Dental implants can also help secure dentures in place, preventing them from rubbing and making clicking noises, or they can be used as an alternative to partial dentures or a crown-and-bridge treatment.
The Dental Implant Procedure
- Our Dental professionals will examine your mouth, take x-rays, and discuss your Dental history, wants, and needs to determine if Dental implants are right for you.
- If you are a candidate for Dental implants, we will place the Dental implant below the gumline.
- Once the implant is in place, the artificial roots are then given enough time to stabilize, reinforcing your jawbone to prevent further bone loss.
- Finally, we will attach a replacement tooth crown above the gumline to the implant.
