Dental implants are popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and designed to blend with your natural teeth. Implants are often as strong as the patient's original tooth. In our office we have been placing implants to replace missing teeth since 2002.
Implants or artificial roots are placed into the jawbone under local anesthesia. Then it’s allowed to heal and integrate with the bone. Once the healing process is completed, and the jawbone is attached to the implant, the patient returns to the dental office where the implant is fitted with the new tooth/teeth. This process generally takes anywhere from three to eight months.
This is an implant that was placed by Dr Hanania over 8 years ago to one of our team members. Ask her to show it to you at your next visit!
