Understanding Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular option when it comes to restoring a missing or damaged tooth. Dental implants offer a stable and permanent solution to help you eat, talk, and live normally.

Dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, offering support for your new tooth. The healing process can take a few months. During the healing process, your dentist may advise you to eat softer foods so your jaw can heal properly.

Once the jawbone heals, your dentist will place an artificial tooth over the implant post to replace your missing tooth. This tooth can be customized to your specific needs and matched to fit your smile. Your dentist can shape and color of the implant to match perfectly to your teeth so no one will notice it’s an implant. Once everything is healed and in place, your smile will be complete again.
