What is the process for dental implants?

Dental implants are the option most recommended by dentists to replace missing teeth. They are considered the gold standard for many reasons:

  • Natural function
  • Longevity
  • Aesthetics
  • Easy maintenance
  • Improved oral health

If you decide to go with dental implants to restore your missing teeth, our dentist has you in for a consultation. We want to learn more about your health history and smile goals. The dentist also checks your jawbone health to ensure it is in shape for implant placement.

After the dentist clears you for implants, we schedule your implant placement. We anesthetize the treatment area at this visit and implant an artificial tooth root, also called a dental implant.

Over the next several months, this tooth root integrates with the bone, and then you’re ready for a tooth crown to complete the process.

We can also implant a denture or other prosthetic using up to six tooth root replacements.

Dental implants are lasting tooth replacements that require only brushing, flossing, and dental checkups for upkeep—just like natural teeth!
