DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants are the ultimate in cosmetic dentistry options. These “replacement” teeth look and function just like real teeth. Implants will last for decades, so they are a good choice for replacing missing teeth.

The cosmetic dental work involved with getting implants is a two-step process. The first step is to have an oral surgeon insert the titanium screw into the jaw bone. This will serve as the tooth’s “root.” After the oral surgery, the area needs to heal for four to six months. During this time, the titanium actually fuses to the jawbone, anchoring it in a manner similar to a real tooth root.

The second step is to insert the porcelain tooth and adhere it to the titanium screw. The replacement tooth is made in a dental lab, and the dentist fits it into your mouth so it looks like it’s always been part of your smile.

Dental implants are a natural-looking way to replace teeth that are missing or damaged and a great tool for improving smiles.
