When Do you Need a Dental Implant?
Our skilled dentists may recommend a dental implant to replace your missing tooth and restore your smile to full beauty and function.
What Happens Before a Dental Implant?
Dental implants begin with a consultation in which your dentist will discuss your needs and options and answer any questions you may have. Next, your implant dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth to assess the shape and condition of your bone. This exam includes x-rays and sometimes CT scans of your jaws so the dentist can plan exactly how and where the implants will be placed. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
