Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. They are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible metal that fuses with the bone in your jaw. This makes them very strong and durable.
The first step in getting dental implants is to have a consultation with our prosthodontist. During this visit, we will evaluate your mouth and jawbone to see if you are a good candidate or if you may need prior treatments, such as a bone graft, before you are ready. Once you are considered ready, we will move forward with the implant placement.
The procedure for placing dental implants is usually done in stages. First, the titanium implant is placed in the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone over a period of months. Once the fusion is complete, a support post is placed on top of the implant. This post will protrude through the gumline and be used to support the replacement tooth or teeth. Implants can be used to support one or more artificial teeth, such as dental crowns, dental bridges or even full dentures.
Our goal at Valley Dental Group is to restore complete oral function to you so that you can live your best quality of life.
