What are dental implants?

Dental implants are an innovative new way to replace one or more missing teeth. Just as their name suggests, dental implants are implanted into the jawbone. This makes them exceptionally stable and provides a strong, permanent replacement for your tooth. The dental implant is a small, screw-like post that is placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. After a period of healing, your talented dentist at Gentle Dental Arts will place the dental implant restoration. The implant restoration replaces the crown of the missing tooth, which is the portion that is visible above the gum line. Depending on your personal dental needs and preferences, your implant restoration may be a dental bridge, crown, or full or partial denture. Dental implants are designed to be a permanent restoration for your missing teeth.

Do I need dental implants?

If you are missing one tooth, several teeth, or all of the natural teeth, Dr. Alexander Larsen and Dr. Travis W. Storey may recommend dental implants. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not affect the teeth next to them, and unlike removable dentures, dental implants will not come loose or shift in your mouth.
