Dental implants have become the gold standard for the replacement of missing teeth. Implants are tiny titanium screws that function as prosthetic root systems for the most natural functioning tooth replacement. Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch of missing teeth. Implants improve traditional dental restorations such as dentures and bridges by securing them to the jaw bone for improved oral health.

Benefits of Dental Implants
Replacing missing teeth with dental implants offers a wide range of oral health benefits. Replacing missing teeth as soon as possible prevents further deterioration of the teeth, gums, and jaw. When left untreated, missing teeth may cause the jaw bone to deteriorate and the jaw line to recede. Missing teeth may also lead to further tooth loss, gum disease, and an increased risk of teeth shifting.

Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are suitable for many patients looking to replace their missing teeth. Dr. Marr will provide a thorough oral health exam and medical history to determine if dental implants are right for you. The replacement of missing teeth begins with a thorough exam of the teeth, gums and bone structure. If a patient does not have enough healthy bone bone grafting may be necessary. Dr. Marr will coordinate with an oral surgeon for your implant procedure.
Dental implants are surgically implanted into the jaw bone and take 2-3 months to fully heal and integrate with the surrounding jawbone. Once the dental implant is healed, a small piece called an abutment is attached to the implant(s). Next, a custom fabricated dental restoration will be fixed to the implant.
While dental implants are designed to last a lifetime, proper oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing, and bi-annual dental check-ups are required for successful results. Dental implants rely on healthy gum and bone tissue, so maintaining your oral health is important. Our dental team will also monitor the health and stability of the implant and the implant supported appliance.
