Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to – confidently eating, smiling, laughing, talking, kissing and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your teeth. 

When performed by a trained and experienced dental implant dentist, dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry.

Advantages of a Tooth Implant

Tooth implants do more than just replace your missing tooth. A few of the advantages of using a tooth implant include:

  • An implant is inserted into the jawbone, just like a natural tooth root.

  • The implant is strong and resilient enough to be used for any normal function – such as chewing, biting, and speaking.

  • An implant will restore the natural structure and appearance of the face.

  • A tooth implant provides support for the surrounding jawbone and gum tissue.


Tooth Implant Procedure

  1. One of the implant dentists here at Avalon Dental Center will need to perform a thorough examination in order to determine if an implant is the best solution for you.

  2. If so, an anesthetic will be used to make sure you don’t feel any pain as the tooth implant is inserted into the jawbone, where the natural root of the tooth would go.

  3. The gum tissue will be replaced around the implant, which will then grow into and around it with time.

  4. The jawbone will also grow around the implant as if it were your natural tooth root.

  5. A crown will then be placed on the implant to act as the actual tooth. This crown will be fabricated to look, feel and function like its neighboring teeth.
