Due to the coronavirus outbreak, our office is temporarily closed except for emergencies. We are hoping to slow the spread of the virus by encouraging our patients to stay home. This will also conserve protective equipment so that, if needed, it can be diverted to emergency medical services in our area. Please call the office and leave a message if you have a dental emergency and we will contact you. 
We will be in touch to reschedule appointments when we are able to reopen.
We wish you health and strength during this difficult time!

Dental Implant Restoration

Dental implants are used as a viable, more permanent alternative to bridges and crowns, and are surgically implanted into the bone above or below the missing tooth. Generally made from titanium, dental implants provide the patient with a prosthesis almost identical in appearance to a natural tooth and, with proper care and maintenance, can last a very long time.

The implantation process typically includes a reshaping of the adjacent jawbone and gumline, creating an area best suited for a fast and successful procedure. Implants can provide a patient with a missing tooth or teeth a prosthetic that both appears and functions the same as a normal tooth, allowing him/her to improve their smile while taking an important step towards preventing further bone, tooth and gum deterioration.

Sometimes there may be inadequate surface area to install a dental implant, requiring the adjacent gum line to be moved back in order to expose the necessary amount of bone.  After placing an implant, the gums are reshaped around the new tooth, creating a natural-looking gumline without the appearance of a major dental procedure.

Dental implants are designed to fuse with the existing bone and your gums, firmly anchoring them in your mouth and leading to potentially dramatic improvements in your speech, your ability to eat, and, of course, the overall appearance of your smile.
