Dental Implants
 

Implant technology has improved greatly over the past twenty years. It is now the cadillac treatment in dentistry to replace missing teeth. 

The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, where a female connector is placed into the jaw bone. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured.

The implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have temporary crowns installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.

After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment in the implant. The abutment is the male connector that screws into the implant.  First, an impression is taken. The correct abutment is chosen and the crown is created by the laboratory or at our dental office using Cerec technology. At the second appointment, the abutment is screwed into the implant. Next, the crown is cemented or screwed onto the abutment. Finished. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
