If you have lost one or more permanent teeth, our oral surgeons may recommend a dental implant. A dental implant is made up of a titanium implant post, which is surgically placed in the jawbone, a dental restoration, like a dental crown, and a dental abutment, which connects the post and the restoration. We are more than happy to answer any questions that you may have before you make your decision.

Are dental implants comfortable?
Dental implants are designed to become a permanent part of your smile, so they are very comfortable. They do not have to be removed and cleaned at night. They are cleaned right along with your natural teeth. In addition, you don’t need to worry about your dental implants sliding in your mouth.

How do dental implants affect my oral health?
Dental implants can preserve the health of your jawbone because the implant posts stimulate the bone. A preserved jawbone contributes to your overall dental health and to the appearance of your smile.

How do I take care of dental implants?
Unlike some dental restorations, dental implants don’t need to be removed at night for cleaning. Simply brush and floss your dental implants along with your other teeth. In addition, make sure that you visit your dentist for your regular dental cleanings and exams.
