Dental implants are designed to provide to replace teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
Evaluation for Dental Implants
If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Dr. Elliott or by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.
Dental Implant Procedure
For most patients, the placement of dental implants is very easy.
If a tooth needs to be extracted in many cases an implant can be placed at the time of extraction. Typical healing is 3-4 months before the final crown (or tooth) can be put on the implant. In some cases longer time is needed for healing. There are many options to fill the space while you are healing. From and single tooth to replacing every tooth in your mouth Dr. Elliott is an expert in restoring dental implants and would love to discuss your options.
