Dental implants are small metal rods that are placed underneath the gums and into the bone.
Dental implants can help restore your smile in a way that nothing else can. They are ideal for people who are missing one of more of their teeth and want to avoid compromising their other teeth by having bridgework done. Keep in mind that placing dental implants is a surgical procedure, so not everyone is a viable candidate. The only way for you to determine if it’s the right choice for you is by having a consultation at our office.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small metal rods that are placed underneath the gums and into the bone. Over the course of about three months, the implant fuses naturally with the bone, allowing for a crown to be placed on top. Some patients choose to have implants placed because they want a more secure-fitting denture. They help you to look great because you are able to restore a full smile without the need for bridgework or ill-fitting dentures.

Who is a Viable Candidate for Implants?
Because placing implants is a surgical procedure, not every patient is a viable candidate. Those who have bone density issues and ailments may not have a high success rate with their implants because of fusion issues. However, in most cases, patients are able to have the procedure done and have great success with the fusion of the implant with the bone. From there, the crown or dentures can be placed on top to fully restore your smile. We can take an x-ray and do an exam to determine if implants are the right choice for you.
