How Do I Get Dental Implants?
- First, you’ll need to undergo a consultation with our team so that we can determine whether or not dental implants are the right choice for you. Implants are successful because they replace both the white portion of your tooth that’s known as the crown and the root portion that keeps your jawbone healthy under the gum tissue. To support the implant, patients will need to have generally good oral health.
- Dr. McCarthy then places the implant(s) into the jawbone so that nature can take over! Over time, your natural bone and tissue will fuse with the implant, creating a strong, reliable foundation for your brand-new tooth or teeth.
- Lastly, Dr. McCarthy will design a brand-new restoration that fits over the implant and provides a lifelike replacement. Dental crowns are used to cover individual implants, while bigger implant-retained bridges or dentures can cover multiple implants at once. Our approach will always be fine-tuned to meet your personal needs!
If you’ve been struggling with constant embarrassment and worry over your missing teeth, it’s time to make a change. Dental implants allow patients to enjoy all their favorite foods, smile with confidence, and live their life to the fullest again.
