A dental implant replaces a missing tooth. In this procedure, a small titanium post is surgically implanted into the bone by an oral surgeon. Once set, we can then attach a replacement tooth onto the top of the post, such as a crown or bridge. Patients are always sedated for the upmost comfort, although some pain is associated with the procedure and will subside in a few days. Depending on the location of the affected tooth, the implant process can take as little as three months or up to a year. It is normal for the implant to feel more solid than your regular tooth because it is integrated into the bone. Our implants will last forever, but proper oral care is required to maintain the implant.
