What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a titanium “screw-like” post that is surgically placed in the jaw bone. Following the surgical placement of the dental implant the dentist will likely recommend waiting four to six months so that the implant can properly heal and stabilize in the bone before putting the implant abutment and crown on. To summarize the dental implant goes below the gums and the abutment is the post that attaches to the implant and sticks above the gums to which the part that you chew with, the dental crown, is attached.
Often times when teeth are not replacement other teeth in the mouth will become loose, sore, and shift. These types of problems can lead to jaw pain, gum disease, chewing problems and many other dental issues. It is always a good idea to replace a missing tooth.

If you have dentures or know that you need dentures, but do not want them to become loose and fall out, we offer dental implant procedures to secure or “bolt on” your denture so that it does not come in or out. This type of procedure is the best dentistry has to offer to help patients that have lost their teeth feel like they have natural teeth again. Patients with non-moveable dentures secured with dental implants experience much more confidence smiling and are able to eat significantly better than denture patients without implant support.

What is a Denture?
A denture is often needed when teeth are lost, have been missing or require removal due to severe decay or gum disease. The great thing about modern dentures is that they can be stabilized with dental implants.
Unlike dentures of old that would get loose and people would be self conscious about eating or smiling, new dentures are often secured with dental implants. Full dentures are often a cosmetic improvement for individuals with hopeless teeth and bad breath. Removing teeth that are causing severe periodontal disease can have great health benefits.
