A Dental Implant Tooth replacement procedure is a Oral Surgery Procedure to insert an artificial tooth root that will interface with the bone of the jaw to support a dental prosthesis such as a CEREC Crown, Bridge, Dentures and Partials, Facial Prosthesis, or to act as an orthodontic anchor. Modern dental implants use materials, such as titanium, to form an intimate bond to the jaw bone. The implant fixture is first inserted and then a dental prosthetic is added after healing. The amount of recovery time can vary, but healing of the area where the implant was added is necessary before the dental prosthetic (i.e. tooth or bridge) can be attached to the implant.

Are You a Candidate for a Dental Implant Tooth Replacement Procedure?

The ideal candidate for a Dental Implant Tooth replacement procedure is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.

Care of Your Dental Implant

All teeth require proper hygiene along with daily brushing and flossing. This holds true for Dental Implants as well! Regular at-home oral care and dental visits to keep your teeth clean and plaque free will prolong the longevity of your Dental Implant.
