Granger Dental Implants
Simple metal implants make BIG changes for our patients!
Tooth replacement can sound complicated. With all the possible restorations and treatments, keeping everything straight is a bit of a struggle. We recommend dental implants to many of our patients because they streamline the restorative process. By taking care of the missing tooth root and crown all in one go, an implant allows you to get back to your regular life.
Granger dental implants are available close to your neighborhood. By offering local implant placement, Dr. Lee and our staff make it simpler for you to receive the full spectrum of restorative care. If you’d like to schedule a consultation, we would love to tell you more about what to expect from implant surgery.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Exactly how can one little restoration accomplish such a big job? The secret lies in the way implants integrate with your jaw bone. Through the following steps, you form strong connections between your dental work and your natural jaw structure:
- Implants are surgically placed in your jaw bone.
- The titanium material of the implants is biocompatible, meaning it functions in cooperation with your body’s natural tissues.
- In the months after implant placement, the implants slowly form a connection between their titanium and your osseous (bone) tissue.
- Once the connection is complete, your implants have become a stable part of your jaw. They feel and function like natural tooth roots.
- Restorations are placed atop the implants, where they are supported and stabilized. You are able to chew, speak, and eat like you once did, with the restorations feeling incredibly similar to your surrounding teeth.
- If your implants achieved a successful bond, they will last for decades to come - and for some patients, for the rest of their lives.
Implant dentistry is one of the most exciting and thorough ways to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or even a full mouth of teeth. Just get in touch to learn whether you are an implant candidate, and to take a big step forward.
