Foundation for a New Smile

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gum line, serving as a stable anchor for artificial teeth. Over time, these implants integrate with the bone, creating a secure foundation for replacement teeth. This process, known as osseointegration, is crucial for the durability and stability of the implant. At Gardena Family Dentistry and Orthodontics, the dental team carefully assesses your oral health and bone structure to ensure you are a suitable candidate for this life-changing treatment.

The Dental Implant Procedure

The Procedure

The dental implant procedure is a multi-step process that begins with a comprehensive evaluation, including X-rays and 3D imaging, to plan the implant placement. The titanium post is then surgically inserted into the jawbone, where it will heal and integrate with the bone over several months. Once the implant has bonded with the jawbone, a small connector post, called an abutment, is attached to the post to securely hold the new tooth. Finally, a custom-made crown, designed to match your natural teeth, is attached to the abutment, completing the restoration.
