What Is a Dental Implant?

If you lose a tooth in an emergency and it cannot be re-implanted, or you need one extracted Starlite Smiles, and our dental team are here to help get you the proper replacement with our dental implants. We start the process by surgically positioning a metal post into your jaw. The metal post will act as your new root and will hold your new tooth in place and not allow other teeth to infringe on the empty space all while keeping your jawbone from receding.

Once we have this new metal post in place, we will then begin with the implant restoration procedure. Our staff has the complete training and modern tools needed to ensure that this new crown will look, act, and feel like your natural tooth. It will look like your smile never changed.

Dental Implants can be a healthier option than dentures as well. Since they fuse to your jawbone, they will not allow your jaw to deteriorate over time and let it to slip forward, worsening your original bite. Here are some of the other advantages you’ll receive:

  • Improved speech, appearance, and comfort

  • Convenience of not removing, unlike dentures
