If you have missing teeth, dental implants offer a permanent solution. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implants offer protection for your long-term oral health. We feature attractive implant solutions for patients who are missing one tooth, several teeth, or even a full arch.
A dental implant is a prosthetic replacement tooth that’s secured using a titanium post that’s placed directly in your jaw. The implant supports an attractive crown that’s custom-made to blend in with the rest of your smile. Through a process called osseointegration, the implant will form a secure bond with your jaw to provide you with exceptional comfort and chewing power.
Restoring your smile with dental implants is a three-step process that typically takes between three and six months to complete. The first step is your initial consultation with Dr. Herman, who will determine if dental implants are the ideal solution for your smile. Next, he’ll place your implant fixture and attach a temporary restoration. After allowing a few months for your mouth to heal, you can return to our office for your final restoration.
Thanks to advances in technology, more patients can receive dental implants than ever before. During your consultation with Dr. Herman, he’ll examine the state of your jaw and gums to determine if they can support dental implants. In some cases, Dr. Herman recommends one or more supplemental procedures to prepare you for implant surgery. Common supplemental procedures include bone grafting and soft tissue augmentation.
