Permanent Solution

Unlike removable dentures or bridges, dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution that integrates with your natural jawbone, providing stability and durability for years to come.

The Dental Implant Process



During your initial consultation, we'll assess your oral health and discuss your treatment options. If dental implants are determined to be a suitable solution for you, we'll create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.


Placement & Healing

The dental implant procedure involves surgically placing titanium posts into the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots. This provides a stable foundation for the attachment of custom-made crowns, bridges, or dentures. We will provide a temporary restoration while your implant fuses with your jawbone. This process typically takes a few months.



After the implants have been placed and the surrounding tissues have healed, we'll attach the abutments and prosthetic restorations to complete your smile transformation. The end result is a functional and aesthetically pleasing smile that restores your confidence and oral health.

Frequently Asked Questions


How long do dental implants last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. It's important to practice good oral hygiene, attend regular dental check-ups, and avoid habits such as smoking that can compromise the longevity of your implants. The restoration, however, will need to be replaced eventually.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Most individuals with good oral health and sufficient jawbone density are candidates for dental implants. However, factors such as gum disease, bone loss, and certain medical conditions may affect your eligibility. We'll evaluate your oral health and discuss your options during your consultation.

Does the dental implant procedure hurt?

The dental implant procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the surgery. Most patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure and mild soreness afterward, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
