A dental implant is a small titanium screw-like fixture
that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing
natural tooth. The dental implant is placed in the
bone of the upper or lower jaw. After the placement, the implant
has to fuse with the bone (titanium is one of the best materials
to integrate with natural bone) which can take a couple of
weeks. Treatment time will vary depending on your situation.
It is possible to get well functioning and esthetic looking
teeth within a few days. In some cases it may be necessary
to wait a longer time period before finishing the restoration
in order to obtain the best results.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth
or a number. Implant supported replacement teeth look, feel
and function like natural teeth, they preserve the integrity
of a facial structure and improve the look and function of
a jaw. Once the screw-like fixture is safe, a dentist will
screw in an actual dental implant that is made to look and
replace natural tooth.
Basically anyone who is missing one or more of their teeth
due to injury, disease, or decay may be a candidate for
dental implants. Sometimes if there’s a number of teeth
missing dental implants in conjunction with a crown or bridge
can replace them. The rule of thumb is that if you’re healthy
enough to have a tooth extracted, you’re probably healthy
enough to receive dental implants.
Anesthesia and patient sedation are used to eliminate
any discomfort at the time of the procedure so there is
virtually no pain during the process of implant insertion.
There may be some discomfort after the procedure but this
is usually minimal and can be significantly reduced – or
eliminated – with a help of painkillers.

A dental implant
is a small titanium fixture that serves as the replacement
for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The
implant is placed in the upper or lower jaw. It will
bond with the bone over time and thus serve as an
anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants
can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many
With more than three
decades of clinical experience and over a million

of nearly 99 percent for individual implants*, even
higher for the bridges they support.

do implants cost?
The fee for tooth
replacement with dental implants will depend on several
factors, including the number of teeth being replaced
and the number of implants required to support your
replacement teeth. To obtain a specific fee estimate,
it is necessary to have our implant dentist examine
your mouth. After a thorough diagnostic examination,
our dentist will recommend the treatment that is best
