Dental implants are designed to replace teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. An implant consists of three parts- the implant, the abutment (the piece that connects the implant to the crown) and the implant crown. It is ideal to have the implant placed by our periodontist the same day the tooth is extracted. Three to six months after the implant is placed, you will return to our office with your regular dentist to be fitted for the crown.
Dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
