What is involved in placing dental implants?

Our team has advanced training in dental implants and the skill to perform the surgical implantation of the titanium post and the restoration of the crown that replaces the missing tooth. This means that the entire process, from start to finish, is performed by a dentist you trust in a comfortable and welcoming location.

To start the process, a biocompatible titanium post that functions like a tooth root is implanted into your jaw. After you have healed, you return to our office where we take impressions and measurements to send to the lab that will be creating your crown. Once your crown is ready, you come back to have the crown permanently attached to the titanium root. Dental implants look and function just like your own natural teeth, which means that nobody will ever know that you have had dental work done.
