Missing teeth can cause a gap in your life whether that’s feeling self-conscious about your smile around your peers or struggling to eat your favorite foods. Not only can missing teeth affect your confidence, but they can also negatively affect your oral health as your existing teeth shift and your jawbone begins to degrade without stimulation. We offer start-to-finish dental implant services to permanently replace your missing teeth and help you regain a healthy, beautiful, fully functioning smile!Contact Us
Dental implants replace natural tooth roots. They are made from biocompatible titanium and surgically placed into the jawbone using advanced, computer-guided imaging. Over a series of months, implants fuse with the jawbone to provide a base for your natural-looking tooth restoration to connect to at the gum line.
Dental Implant Process
01 Implant Placement
Our team will surgically place your dental implants into the jawbone using computer-guided technology for accurate, precise placement.
02 Implant Fusion
The implants will permanently fuse with the jawbone, creating a stable foundation for tooth restorations later on. This fusion process promotes jawbone health and prevents bone degradation.
03 Abutment Placement
After the surgical site is healed and the implants have fused with the jawbone, we’ll attach any abutments (connective pieces) to the implants in preparation for the replacement teeth.
04 Restoration Attachment
We will connect a crown, bridge, or denture to the abutments, which will completely cover the implant posts at the jawline. Your tooth restorations will look and function just like your natural teeth.
