What Are Dental Implants?

Do you have a missing tooth or teeth?

Do you often find yourself covering your smile because you are self-conscious of your missing teeth?

Dental implants can help restore your smile and fill in the gaps left by missing teeth with durable results that can last you for years to come.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer multiple benefits for patients who are missing a tooth or several teeth. Some of these benefits can include:

  • Improved oral health
  • Durability
  • Natural look and feel
  • Restored tooth function
  • Long-lasting results

Dental implants are not only used on their own but can secure dentures or dental bridges for patients who are missing consecutive teeth or whole arches of teeth. For a fuller and more functional smile, dental implants are a great option.

Treatment with Dental Implants

Dr. Scott Finlay will assess your teeth and gums before treatment. This is done to ensure that your bone tissue is healthy enough for a dental implant. You can also discuss your budget and oral health goals with Dr. Finlay to determine if dental implants are the right option for you.

Dental implants consist of a durable titanium post that is secured to the jawbone. After it is secured, a temporary crown is placed on top of an abutment that is attached to the post. The implant fuses to bone tissue after a period of 3 to 6 months. Then the temporary crown is replaced with a permanent crown for a full restoration.
