Essentially, the implant is a replacement tooth root, providing a durable foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth. These substitute teeth are made to match your natural teeth, allowing you to smile with confidence. We replace your missing teeth with lifelike replacements that can last as long as a lifetime. The implant itself is a tiny titanium post that acts as a tooth root. These incredibly durable posts are planted into your jaw, and the bone is allowed to heal and harden around the post, a process that takes around six to 12 weeks. Once your implant is secure, we install a customized crown that mimics the surrounding teeth, ensuring a flawless smile. While success rates vary based on your jaw, implants generally have a success rate of up to 98%.
