Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing permanent teeth. A dental implant is made up of a dental implant post, which is made out of titanium, and a dental restoration, which replaces the visible portion of the tooth. The dental implant post is a screw that is surgically placed in the jawbone where the tooth was lost. The post replaces the tooth root and provides a stable foundation for the replacement tooth. A period of healing may be required so that the bone can start to bond with the implant post.

After the healing period, the dental implant restoration is placed on top of the implant post. Depending on your individual needs, the restoration may be a dental crown, dental bridge or a denture. Your dental restoration will be custom made specifically for your smile for optimal fit, function and appearance.

Any missing tooth or teeth in your smile should be restored so you can enjoy optimal oral health, function and beauty. Dental implants are designed to function, look and feel just like your natural teeth. With proper care, these restorations can last a lifetime. Be sure to brush and floss your dental implant just like you would your regular teeth. Also, visit our office at least every six months for professional dental cleanings and exams.

I have been going to Dr. Slota for quite awhile and can’t imagine going to anyone else. I have had dental issues since a car accident more than 40 years ago. Dentures, partials, root canals, crowns…the works. I finally agreed to implants and was terrified. We started down the implant road nearly 6 months ago and today I had my lower denture firmly attached to the implants. They feel so tight and almost natural. I’m not going to tell you that it was fun, because it wasn’t, and I’m not going to tell you that it was easy, because it wasn’t, but, I will tell you that the difference is amazing. There is still some more work to do but, so far, so good. Dr. Slota and his staff are wonderful, caring professionals and do everything they can to make their clients comfortable and to put them at ease.
