Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that are used as a part of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry in order to compensate for tooth loss. Often the result is not only an enhanced smile, but also a more youthful appearance, since missing teeth cause the face to collapse, making you look older. We are able to do most implant placement onsite. On occasion if we deem necessary we may refer you to an oral surgeon.

Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that are used as a part of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry in order to compensate for tooth loss. TownePointe Dental is ble to do most implant placement onsite. On occasion if we deem necessary we may refer you to an oral surgeon. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants can improve the quality of your life, providing comfort and confidence to smile, laugh, speak and eat what you want, when you want.

What Does The Procedure Involve?
The diagram on the right shows a variety of dental implant solutions. In each case, a dental implant is surgically placed into the mouth and it will function as a substitute tooth root. Small posts are attached to the implant to provide stable anchors in the gums for replacement teeth.
Healing time following surgery varies from person to person, based on a variety of factors that include hardness of bone. Immediate post operative healing normally has only minimal discomfort. Total healing time for the implant to bond to the bone is normally 2-3 months. During this time you will be able to wear a temporary dental appliance if appropriate.
For the first two to three months following surgery, temporary dentures can be worn while the implants are gradually bonding to the jawbone. At this time your final tooth, bridgework or denture will be designed and placed once the implant has bonded to the jawbone.
The entire procedure from surgery to final restoration usually takes three to five months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life, and the final results are more than worth it. Over 2.5 million patients nationwide have been satisfied with this latest technique for replacement teeth.
