Dental implants are an excellent solution to missing teeth. They look and feel like your natural teeth and are just as functional, too!
Benefits of Dental Implants
Here are some of the benefits of dental implants:
- You can eat comfortably and speak flawlessly
- Your natural facial structure will be preserved
- Prevent bone loss and gum recession
- Your surrounding teeth will remain fully functional
- Easily brushed like your other teeth
The most common type of denture or dental implant, overdentures are designed to fit over your healthy teeth and use them as anchors. These are by far our easiest and most comfortable dentures!
Dental Implant Process
Getting dental implants may sound like a long and complicated process, but it is actually quite simple and generally only requires one surgery.
First, we will implant small titanium posts in your jawbone. The bone will bond with the titanium and the gums will heal within a few weeks.
Next, the implant is fitted to the posts in your gum and you will undergo surgery to place the implant. We offer a variety of sedation to ensure you are comfortable during the surgery. After surgery, your bone will grow around the implant. This can take up to six months.
When you get your mini implant, our dentists will numb the area and create a small space for the screws. Then, six mini implants will be inserted, and the implant will be tightened to the screws. Your denture will then be retrofitted with a metal housing so it can snap into place, and then you are all set to carry on with your new dental implant!
