How Implants Work
If you have missing, broken or fractured teeth, you may turn to implants as a valuable treatment option to repair your smile. Dental implants differ from dentures in the fact that they are implanted in the gums and an artificial root is placed in order to hold the place of the natural root. Without a replacement for the natural root, the teeth can shift over time, and bone density in the jaw may be compromised. Dental implants can prevent this from happening.
Implants prevent bone and gum erosion, keep surrounding teeth in place and preserve the look of your natural smile. While the process can take several months and a number of appointments, the first step is taken when titanium posts that serve as artificial tooth roots are implanted into the jaw and fused to the bone.

Once the titanium posts or implants are placed, there are several restorative options that can be attached to the top to replace the natural teeth.
While the implant replaces the natural root, the implant restoration replaces the natural tooth. Treatment plans are customized to each individual patient, and the restorative method used depends on the amount of teeth that are missing from the mouth and the location of the missing teeth.
Implants are often considered the best replacement for the natural tooth – as they hold the place of the original tooth in the jawbone and are aesthetically attractive on the surface. Implants also last longer than other treatment options, and while they may require replacement at some point, will typically last several decades. For those who have had dental implants in the past that have failed, we are happy to offer restorative services to repair the teeth.
