What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants have transformed the world of dentistry! Dental implants are a viable solution for missing teeth that replaces them in the most natural way possible.

A tooth implant is a replacement tooth root made of medical-grade titanium. It is implanted into the jaw, where it fuses with the bone and becomes a working part of the smile. Later, we cap the tooth implant with a beautiful replacement tooth!

Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentistry?

Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, but most patients are! Implant dentistry requires:

  • Sufficient jawbone volume
  • Good oral health habits
  • Good overall health

Patients with habits like smoking may not qualify for implant dentistry. If you are lacking jawbone volume, we can discuss your options at Wilson Dental Group. We use implant dentistry whenever possible!

Dental implants can be used to replace:

  • A single tooth
  • Multiple teeth
  • All of the teeth

The tooth implant itself won’t change, but the type of restoration will. We can use implant-retained dentures, bridges, or dental crowns to restore your complete smile.

The Implant Dentistry Process

  1. Our in-house specialists will place your single tooth implant or multiple dental implants. We will ensure your procedure is highly comfortable.
  2. Dental implants take some time to integrate with the jawbone. Patients will take a few months off to heal.
  3. Patients return to our office for tooth implant restoration. We will replace missing teeth with natural-looking dental devices!
