Preventing Bone Loss

Your jaw relies on having strong, healthy teeth to allow you to chew and speak properly. When even a single tooth is missing, the jaw bone can start to shrink, causing other complications for your oral and overall health. This may also increase your risk of being diagnosed with gum disease. 

Fortunately, an implant can be used to address this problem. A small titanium screw will be surgically placed in the jaw bone to replace the missing tooth or teeth. The implant is designed to function like a natural tooth root and prevent surrounding teeth from shifting. It can also resolve jaw joint pain and keep facial tissues from sagging.

The Importance of a Healthy Bite

Not only does a dental implant improve the look of your smile but replacing missing teeth can also contribute to your overall health. Dental implants can help you continue to enjoy a wide variety of healthy foods and maintain your facial structure. 

The Dental Implant Process

A dental implant is comprised of two primary components, including a tiny titanium screw that's implanted in the jaw to replace a missing tooth root and a dental crown. The crown is attached to the implant to replace the visible part of a natural tooth. 

To start, your dentist will surgically place the implant into your jaw bone beneath the gum tissue. The implant will bond with the bone and attach to the gums as the tissue heals. 

Once healing is complete following surgery, patients will then return to our office to have the procedure completed with a dental crown or bridge. 

During this final appointment, your dentist will attach a tooth replacement to the implant to create the look and function of a natural tooth.
