Implants

Dental implants resemble a new root for a tooth.  This titanium root fitted into a socket that we create in your jaw, replaces the loss of your natural tooth.  Once an implant is placed in your jaw the bone around the implant will need to heal for up to 6 months.  Many times the temporary can be placed the same day as the implant placement.  When this initial phase of healing is completed, a support post is placed into the implant and a new tooth or teeth can be realized.
