Dental implants are metal fixtures made of titanium which are accepted and tolerated by the body. They can be surgically placed in the jaw immediately after tooth extraction or in a healed area of the jaw. Implant fixtures may be placed in the dental office under local anesthetic with minimal post operative complications. After placement the fixtures fuse or integrate to the bone in your jaw in 3-6 months.

Replacement teeth may be attached to the implant or implants to restore a patient's smile and function with crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Depending on the patient's dental needs teeth may be placed immediately after implant placement. Implants may replace missing teeth with the appearance, feel, and function of natural teeth without having to prepare or "cut" adjacent healthy teeth.

Implants after integration to the bone [after 3-6 months] will provide stable support to replacement teeth and dentures. The secure fit is very natural and the implant will anchor the appliance and the teeth will not slip or move.

Dental implants have a 95% or better success rate in healthy patients that return for routine maintenance and care appointments. Underlying medical conditions may lessen the success and integration of implants.
