Dental Implants
 

                        
Dental implants are an appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth.  No additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth.

The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, where a screw is placed into the jaw bone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured.

The implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have a temporary installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.

After the implant has healed, it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. Once Dr. Gerber places the abutment, an impression is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration.  Once the restoration is completed you will return to Dr. Gerber's office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
