About Implants Dental implants are a great way to improve your smile. Dental implants are a permanent restoration that restore function similar to your natural teeth. The doctor begins with a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan. Using Cone Beam scanning technology the office is able to get a full 3D view of the area of concern, allowing for accurate planning and placement of your new dental implant.The next step is to have the implant surgically placed in the jaw. The implant is then given time to heal, and once the healing process is complete a new crown may be placed on the implant restoring function and beauty. Dental Implants are the optimal choice for replacing missing teeth because they look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Implant treatment begins with tiny titanium posts being placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. Once these posts are placed bone will begin to bond with the titanium post creating a strong foundation. Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a connector- called an abutment- is placed on top of the dental implant to connect the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth. Finally an individual tooth, implant supported bridge or dentures with multiple teeth is attached to the abutment.
