Am I a Candidate For a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are an ideal solution for patients with severely damaged roots and have a strong jaw bone. Dental implants are used to support artificial teeth, dental bridges, or partial dentures. You might be a good candidate for dental implants if you have healthy oral tissues, are missing one or more teeth, and don’t smoke tobacco. Talk to our dental professionals about whether dental implants are right for you.
What to Expect During a Dental Implant Procedure
A dental implant is a dental screw made of titanium that is inserted into the jawbone as a post to support artificial teeth. The installation of dental implants is a complex procedure that requires several visits to our offices over several months. The length of treatment will depend on the time it takes the titanium posts to fuse to your jawbone and for your oral tissues to fully heal. The process includes removing the compromised teeth, installing the implants, allowing the implants to set and the mouth to heal, then installing the custom-made replacement teeth. If you have any concerns about the implant process, our team is happy to answer your questions.
