How Do Implants Work?
One of the main things patients always want to know is how dental implants work to replace missing teeth. During our implant lectures, Dr. Patel goes over, in detail, the placement and function of implants.
In short, implants are a small titanium post that Dr. Patel places into your jawbone in the space created by a missing tooth. The titanium fuses with the bone to create a solid anchor. On top, he places a restoration – a crown, crowns with a connecting dental bridge, or even dentures – to complete your new smile.Reserve Your Spot

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Implants are strong and sturdy because they fuse with your jawbone. Once they’re securely in your mouth, and a restoration is placed, you’ll be back to talking, eating, and smiling with confidence again. Compared to other tooth replacement options, such as dentures, implants are much more secure. Ill-fitting dentures can slip or click, causing discomfort. Implants stay put. We can even secure your dentures using dental implants, so they stay firmly in place.
They are also easy to care for – just brush your teeth and floss as you normally would. That, plus coming in for your regular dental check-ups, is all you need to do to keep your dental implants functioning great for years to come.
Replacing missing teeth with implants also helps preserve the shape of your face. When you’re missing a tooth for a while, the jawbone deteriorates, causing your face to look sunken. Using an implant in place of the tooth root ensures that your jawbone stays healthy.Learn More
