Why Choose Dental Implants?
Living with missing teeth can hurt your confidence and impact your day-to-day activities. Thankfully, Dr. Hart offers dental implants to replace one or several missing teeth and rebuild your stunning smile.
Dental implant surgery is a permanent, life-long solution to tooth loss. Your implants look and feel just like natural teeth, and you clean them the same way. Daily brushing and flossing are all it takes to maintain optimal oral hygiene.
No matter how many teeth you’re missing, Dr. Hart can customize a dental implant solution to restore your smile. Discover how choosing dental implants can benefit you.
The Dental Implant Process
The first step to achieving a stunning new smile is scheduling your initial consultation with Dr. Hart. During this visit, she’ll examine your oral health, review your medical history, and help you decide whether implants are right for you.
If you decide dental implants are the right fit for you, we’ll begin the process immediately. During your surgery, we’ll place the implants into your jaw, where it will heal into the bone. For some, the healing process can take up to six months.
Once healed, you will return to Dr. Hart’s office, where she’ll securely attach your customized restoration to the implant fixture, ensuring excellent durability and comfort.
You may require a supplemental procedure to qualify for dental implants if your jaw isn’t dense enough. Losing teeth weakens your jawbone over time, but supplemental treatments like bone grafting can provide the support you need and give your implant a better chance of success.
For single-tooth restorations, your implants will include premium dental crowns to replace your teeth. Their durability and natural appearance make dental implants the most natural-looking tooth replacement solution.
