If you have missing teeth, consider dental implants – the most natural restoration option available in today’s dentistry.
With a success rate of almost 98%, dental implants are the most reliable and permanent replacement option for missing or damaged teeth.
Dental implants are pieces of titanium that resemble screws, anchoring into the jawbone as a support system for your crowns. The implant connects to an abutment that connects your implant and crown.
Once the screw is inserted into your bone socket, the implant will stimulate bone growth. Your jaw will naturally grow around the implant and fuse together as one.
Patients enjoy better oral health with an implant because it leaves the surrounding teeth intact.
For this reason, they are one of the most reliable and popular procedures in dentistry today. Once fully healed, implants do not affect eating, drinking, or speaking. Typical recovery time from dental implants is 6-12 weeks.
Dental implants require oral surgery from a licensed periodontist. Dr. Walters will determine if implants are a good fit for you, then refer you to one of our experienced partner providers.
