What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone and eventually fuse with the bone itself. These metal structures serve as replacement tooth roots when you’ve lost your natural tooth. An implant is just the foundation of your preferred tooth replacement option and must be paired with a restorative piece. When cared for properly, dental implants can last up to 15 years or longer.

Dental Implants Process

During your initial consultation, we will take comprehensive X-rays to thoroughly examine your jawbone density and determine whether you’re a candidate for the procedure. For those whose jawbones are insufficient, a bone graft may be performed to generate new growth and strengthen the bone. Next, the implants will be surgically placed into the jawbone and given time to fuse together. Once you’re completely healed, a connective structure called an abutment will be attached to the implant. After the abutment is in place, either your dental crown, bridge, or dentures will be connected and your dental implants process will be complete.
