Restore your Smile and Oral Function with Dental Implants
Missing teeth can affect your overall dental health and your confidence. Consider replacing the lost tooth with a dental implant when you need to remove a tooth or have already performed an extraction. This procedure allows you to implant a natural-looking, artificial tooth root in place of your missing tooth root and restores it with a crown. This procedure is ideal for anyone who wants to fix their smile and have complete functionality of their teeth.

People considering dental implants should consult with an implant dentist to determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure. Several factors determine whether or not you can install an implant, including the amount of bone loss, the length of time since the extraction, and the amount of space available. The only way to determine if getting an implant is possible is to schedule an examination.
The examination and consultation are the first steps in the process of acquiring a dental implant. A proper evaluation requires a 3D scan to evaluate the quality of the bone, the amount of space for the implant, and to make sure no anatomical structures like nerves are in the area. If your dentist determines that you can receive an implant, they’ll schedule an appointment for you to return to have it placed. The implant is the base where the crown, bridge, or dentures are screwed into place securely. At the second visit, your dentist will place the abutment once the implant has fused with the jawbone. Impressions are then taken to design the crown; once that is ready, you will come in to have it fitted over your implant. Once the restoration is in place, it is a permanent fixture and can be used just like a natural tooth.
Sometimes, the dentist may need other procedures to adequately prepare the area for an implant. If there are additional steps to the process, the dentist will review them and outline the course of treatment to achieve your goal.
