Dental Implants are used to replace missing teeth. We will refer you to one of the wonderful specialists we work with to evaluate your dental implant options. Once the implant is placed, it will heal for about 3-6 months. During this time bone will form around the implant in a process called Osseo integration.
During this healing time you can have a temporary tooth replacement placed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile. After the dental implant has healed it is time to take an impression for the final restoration. After a 2-3 week fabrication process, you will return to the office to place the restoration. After a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
