Dental Implants

Safe, effective and more popular than ever

If you are considering or have been advised to have a dental implant, you are not alone. Dental implants have become increasingly popular with Americans over the past decade. The procedure is both safe and effective. In fact, patients who have had a dental implant from an experienced oral surgeon say that the final result is like having your natural teeth again.

How do dental implants work?

If you have a missing tooth, a dental implant can be an excellent long term solution. They are imbedded safely in the jaw, will never develop cavities or affect adjacent healthy teeth and, if properly cared for, can last a lifetime.

The procedure should be done by an experienced professional oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) and is done in three steps:

1. Your surgeon puts in a titanium implant, fusing it with the jawbone.
2. An abutment is fitted over implant that protrudes above the gum line
3. A crown is placed over the abutment.

That’s your basic dental implant.

You’ll feel the difference.

Replacing your missing teeth can have a positive impact on your general well being. You’ll discover that your smile is back – and that chewing and enjoying food is fun once again. You’ll also feel confident knowing that your new dental implant prevents bone loss and damage to other teeth.

If you are considering a dental implant, consult with a professional oral surgery practice with a trusted reputation who will take the time to sit down with you and explain your treatment options in detail.

Did you know?

It has been estimated that 69% of Americans aged 35-44 are missing at least one tooth and one in four over the age of 74 have lost all of their natural teeth.

Good news!

90% of dental implants are successful.
