Dental Implants

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a replacement tooth root. It allows for the placement of an artificial tooth that looks and feels just like your natural teeth. 


  • Looks and feels natural (just like your other teeth)

  • Durable (can last a long time; up to a lifetime with good care)

  • Sturdy and fixed (won’t move around or negatively affect speech/eating)

  • Feel more confident (an improved smile does wonders)


  • Typical minor surgery related risks (infection, injury)

  • Cost (depends on the number of dental implants)

What is the dental implant process?

1. Prepare Mouth

Remove the damaged tooth and rebuild the jawbone through bone grafting (if necessary).

2. Place Implant

Dentist exposes gum of specified area, drills a hole to place the implant.

3. Healing

The process of osseointegration begins (the jawbone starts to grow into and around the implant). This usually takes a few months at least.

4. Add Abutment

The abutment is an intermediate connecting piece used to connect the new tooth to the implant.

5. Place New Tooth

Once the time is right, as verified by the dentist, the new tooth is ready to be added. This step is usually quick and easy.

6. Final Check

The implant and new tooth are checked for proper form and function and monitored over time.
