What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a superior treatment for replacing one or more missing teeth. Designed to be a permanent solution, dental implants replace not only the portion of the tooth above the gumline, but the tooth root as well. This adds extra strength and stability to ensure your dental implant looks and functions just as a healthy, natural tooth would. At Dhillon Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we use dental implants to support crowns, bridges, and dentures.
How are dental implants done?
Dr. Navkiran Dhillon, our qualified dentist, has the training and certification necessary to offer high-quality dental implants in Ware, Massachusetts. A surgical treatment, dental implants generally take three to six months to complete. During this process, we will:
- Surgically implant a small titanium post underneath your gumline and into your jawbone
- Allow your smile to fully heal as the titanium post fuses to your bone
- Place an attachment called an abutment onto the post, which will connect your restoration to the top of the post
- Complete the dental implant by placing your permanent dental restoration, either a crown, bridge, or denture, on the abutment.
We look forward to helping you restore your naturally beautiful smile! We invite you to schedule your consultation with Dr. Navkiran Dhillon today to see if dental implants may be right for you.
