What is a dental implant?
A Permanent Solution For Your Smile
A dental implant is a titanium screw that mimics the root of your tooth. It integrates with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. Healing and proper integration can take several months, though we can restore some dental implants on the same day.
An abutment attaches to your dental implant post to provide a seat for your implant crown. The dental implant crown is the part of your dental implant people see when you smile. We design your dental implant crown to match your existing teeth so the result looks natural and seamless. Dr. Jon takes great care in preserving your smile and making sure the final outcome looks and feels great.
Dental Implants Offer Many Benefits
We can also use dental implants to allow an existing denture to snap in place, keeping it stable while you eat, speak, and laugh. This is especially appreciated by patients who have difficulty with ill-fitting dentures due to bone loss.
Dental implants offer many health benefits, including bone retention, bite preservation, convenience in care, and a long-term solution to the problem of tooth loss. They allow you to eat all the same foods you can enjoy with your natural teeth, so you can maintain a healthy diet.
