Implant dentistry is the most advanced therapy available to replace missing teeth. Dental implant restorations generally look, feel and act like natural teeth.
Dental implants may offer you important advantages compared to other treatment options: improved good health and enhanced appearance, which may lead to greater self confidence and a better quality of life.
In conjunction with high-end cosmetic dentistry, implants replace missing teeth in a way that is virtually undetectable. Patients experience the amazing difference implants can make in their lives. No longer do they have bulky, unattractive, and high maintenance dentistry.
A patient who has a bridge, is missing teeth, or is about to lose a tooth is a candidate for this wonderful therapy.
The process is really quite simple. Implants are placed by a surgeon in a comfortable procedure that takes less than 30 minutes which is typically done under safe local anesthesia. One implant can be placed for a single tooth or a series of implants can be placed to replace multiple teeth.
The implant now needs to heal for eight to twelve weeks. During this time, the missing space will be restored with a temporary restoration as needed.
After the implant has fully healed, an impression of the teeth is taken and a crown, bridge or denture is made to fit the dental implant or implants. The result is incredible both because of it's natural feel and attractive appearance.
