How Dental Implants Replace Missing Teeth

MISSING TEETH CAN BE distressing. They can affect your self-esteem and overall health. Dental implants are an excellent way to replace your teeth and enjoy your smile again.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

The process of dental implants is fairly simple. There are a few basic steps:

  • We’ll make a space for the dental implant first. Any trace of the old tooth is removed and the area is prepped for the implant.
  • Next, we’ll place a post in the gum where the tooth was.
  • Over the next few months, your mouth will heal around the implant. The titanium rod fuses with your jawbone.
  • Once the post is secure, we’ll put an abutment in place. The abutment connects to the rod and holds the crown that will go on top.
  • Finally, the prosthetic tooth/teeth–which have been milled, designed, and colored specifically to suit your mouth–are attached to the abutment, completing the implant process.
