implantWhat are dental implants?

Implant dentistry is a permanent solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. Whether you are missing only one tooth or all of the natural teeth, dental implants may be a good choice for replacing your missing teeth. Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone, replacing the root of the missing tooth and ensuring that the dental implant is a stable tooth replacement. Following the placement of the dental implant, we will allow a period of healing. During this time, the jawbone begins to fuse with the dental implant, providing a secure foundation for the dental implant restoration. Your dentist, Dr. Bhoompalli, will then place the dental implant restoration, which may be a full denture, partial denture, dental bridge, or dental crown. Once completed, your dental implant can effectively restore the health, function, and appearance of your smile.

Do I need a dental implant?

If you are missing one or multiple teeth, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. A dental implant can improve your smile by restoring facial volume and improving your ability to chew, eat, and speak as normal.
