It’s important to replace teeth to keep your mouth healthy, regain your ability to chew and prevent remaining teeth from shifting. One way to replace a missing tooth is with a dental implant.
When you get a dental implant, we surgically place one or more small metal posts beneath the gum directly into the jawbone. Implants are integrated with the surrounding bone and serve as artificial roots to support replacement teeth.
What to expect
- Dental implant procedures typically vary from 3-9 months dependent on the need for bone grafting and healing and is specific to each patient.
- Laughing gas or nitrous oxide sedation is an option for this procedure.
