What Are Dental Implants?
Traditional dental bridges and dentures replace only the visible portion of missing teeth. Dental implants, on the other hand, rebuild teeth from the roots up. To accomplish this, we place small titanium posts (dental implants) into the jawbone. The implants bond with the bone and are able to serve as prosthetic tooth roots. On top of the implants, we place a crown, bridge, or denture (according to a patient’s unique needs). The unique construction of dental implants and their restorations makes them feel and function almost exactly like natural teeth. Countless dentists and patients alike regard them as the gold standard of tooth replacement.
The 4 Step Dental Implant Process
The dental implant process can vary from patient to patient. However, there are usually four basic steps involved in treatment:
- We examine your mouth, answer your questions, and begin to plan the rest of your treatment.
- Implant placement surgery. After we make you as comfortable as possible, we carefully insert the implants into your jawbone.
- Osseointegration and abutment. Osseointegration is the biological process through which implants bond with the surrounding bone. It typically takes a few months. Following osseointegration, you may receive abutments, which are small connector pieces that will keep your new teeth in place.
- We will design and place your new crown, bridge, or denture.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Some of the best benefits of dental implants include:
- They help the jawbone to stay strong and whole
- They provide a strong bite force that can stand up to virtually any food
- Their restorations are incredibly lifelike
- With proper care, they have the potential to last a lifetime
- You can care for them in almost exactly the same way that you would care for natural teeth
- The treatment is successful in more than 95% of cases
Who Dental Implants Can Help
Dental implants are able to address any level of tooth loss:
- Missing one tooth. We place a single implant in the jawbone, and we use a single crown to replace the visible portion of the lost teeth.
- Missing multiple teeth. If the teeth are all adjacent to one another, we may recommend an implant-supported bridge. If the teeth are at different places throughout an arch, a partial denture may be a better option.
- Missing all teeth. With just a few strategically placed implants, we can provide the base of support for an entire arch of prosthetic teeth.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Although dental implants cost more upfront than traditional forms of tooth replacement, they are a worthwhile investment. Their longevity, bone health benefits, and natural function are truly priceless! We are pleased to help patients with insurance claims and financing if they require assistance to manage the cost of their new teeth.
