Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth. We will refer you to a dental specialist for implant placement, and we will provide the implant restoration (crown).
The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. Following the installation of the implant itself, in most cases there is a healing period required of 3-4 months. During this healing period, the implant becomes incorporated into the bone. We will then appoint you for a dental impression at our office, and this is used to create your permanent restoration. Once the restoration is completed you can return to the office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
