Dental implants are a natural-looking, permanent solution for missing teeth. They’re never removed, easy to clean, and allow you to speak and smile with total confidence. They’re also the only tooth replacement that stimulates healthy jawbone growth to protect your oral health.
Explore our comprehensive guide to learn everything you need to know about dental implants.
A dental implant is a small titanium post that’s placed directly in your jaw to replace a natural tooth root. After it’s topped with a small connecting screw called an abutment and a stunning porcelain crown, your implant will look and function just like a natural tooth. Best of all, the implant is permanently anchored to your jaw and can last a lifetime with proper care.
Restoring your smile with dental implants is a multi-step process that typically requires several months. After Dr. Hoffman determines you’re ready, he’ll place your implant and protect the surgical area with a temporary crown or flipper. At this point, you’ll need to allow four to six months for your implant to heal before you return to our office for your final restoration.
After Dr. Hoffman attaches your abutment and crown, all that’s left to do is enjoy your beautiful new smile.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Hoffman, he’ll thoroughly evaluate the state of your oral health to determine if you’re an immediate candidate for dental implants. If you suffer from jawbone deterioration or gum disease, he can prepare you for implant placement with one or more supplemental procedures.
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement that protects your oral health in addition to restoring your smile. By filling gaps from missing teeth and stimulating healthy jawbone growth, implants help you avoid issues such as gum disease, malocclusion, premature wrinkles, and more. Best of all, they can last a lifetime with proper care.
Dental implants are customized to look and function like your natural teeth. Once your treatment is complete, you’ll be able to chew all your favorite foods comfortably without any fear of your implants being damaged or falling out. Implants are resistant to decay and highly durable, allowing you to enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile for many years to come.
