The process to replace a single missing or failing tooth is simple. The tooth is removed, if necessary, and the implant screw is placed deep into the remaining bone. Bone grafting material may need to be placed to secure the implant into the bone and ensure long-term success. A temporary restoration is placed over the implant for esthetics. A few months later, a final beautiful porcelain crown is made to perfectly fill the missing tooth space.
Don’t let missing teeth hold you back. Dental implants are the revolutionary way to restore your smile and help you maintain outstanding health. If you’re considering dentures or other restoration options, you owe it to yourself to talk to Dr. Osafi about dental implants. You’ll be glad you did!

Benefits of Dental Implants…
1. Easy to care for. Dental implants maintenance is much the same as your natural teeth. When you have a cleaning at your dentist’s office, they do use different equipment to clean around your implants. However, on a day-to-day basis, you will clean your teeth the same way with implants as you do with natural teeth.
2. Firmly anchored in place. Permanent placement in the mouth means that they look and feel just like natural teeth.
3. Prevent bone loss. Maintains the alignment of your teeth and the appearance of your jaw.
4. Truly permanent solution. Unlike dentures, which won’t last forever, dental implant, when taken care of properly, can last a lifetime.
