For patients with one or more missing teeth, dental implants are a popular and permanent solution. Dental implants are an advanced alternative to dentures or partials, providing a natural-looking and natural-feeling permanent restoration that gives patients the confidence to smile, talk, and chew with ease. There are many advantages to choosing dental implants, ranging from the freedom and function of permanent teeth to the convenience and confidence of a restored smile.
If you are interested in dental implants for your missing teeth, call us today to book an appointment with our dentists. Before determining if you are an ideal candidate for this procedure, Dr. Bowen and Dr. Gehlert will perform a thorough examination of your total oral health profile—assessing your bone, jaw, teeth, and gum tissues—before recommending the best treatment for your missing teeth. If you wish to improve your appearance, speaking, and chewing with permanent restorations, implants may be right for you.
How are dental implants placed?
If your dentist determines that you are a good candidate for this treatment, your implants will then be placed. Because dental implants replace the roots of lost teeth, they are inserted under the gums where bone can grow around them for a period of 3 to 6 months. At this point, implants are firmly set, the gum tissue is strong, and the implant is ready for a crown or restored tooth. Dental implants are incredibly natural looking and structurally sound. Patients will enjoy the health and support of their dental implants, loving the confidence that their new, permanent teeth inspire.
For some patients, a bone graft may be necessary prior to placing your dental implant. If you are lacking the bone volume in your implant site, a bone graft can be performed to help your body replace missing bone in the area before the implant is placed. Luckily, bone grafts are safe and effective at helping your body create the necessary bone to support an implant, and later, a restoration. Once your bone graft is placed, it will stimulate bone growth and bone volume in the area, helping your body begin to naturally replace missing bone for a structurally sound implant.

For patients with missing teeth, dental implants are the most advanced solution for problems with eating, chewing, or speaking. Implants, which act as roots for new tooth restorations, allow you to have new, permanent teeth, offering you unparalleled comfort, convenience, and aesthetics.
