The absence of a few teeth can dampen an otherwise beautiful smile. Luckily, thanks to modern technology, dental implants are a much sturdier and long lasting way to advance your smile. Implants are composed of synthetic, yet biocompatible material, such as metal or ceramic. Your implants will be created to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. They’ll seamlessly blend in with the aesthetics of your natural teeth.

Dental Implant Treatment
Allan S. Thomas DMD’s implant process ensures that your new teeth are both realistic and durable. Implants are synthetic structures, placed where the missing tooth is normally occupied by the root. As soon as we anchor the implant to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone, it will act as a foundation for your artificial tooth or permanent bridge. Implants are also used to attach dentures.
If the dental implant process makes you uneasy, don’t worry. Our team has the skill to make sure that the whole surgery goes smoothly. We administer anesthesia to our patients, making it a pain free experience. If necessary, we also provide antibiotics to protect our patients from infections after surgery.
After the procedure, you’ll need time for the implant to take hold and for the bone tissue to anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect to the tooth. And like any other dental procedure, implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time.
