Dental Implants

Dental implants restore the natural appearance and function of missing teeth, making them the ideal way to restore your smile. A dental implant is a Titanium screw that is surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone as an anchor for a natural looking crown.

Dental implants are extremely strong, stable and durable. In fact, with proper maintenance they can last a lifetime.

Dental implants are strong and secure so you can speak and eat with confidence! In addition to restoring your natural chewing and speech, they can resolve the joint pain or bite problems caused when teeth begin to shift following tooth loss. Dental implants have the added benefit of being strong enough to support other dental appliances, making common procedures in comprehensive family dentistry such as bridgework or dentures more secure and comfortable. Plus, they look so real that they are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Implant placement requires a number of visits over several months. We will carefully explain each step of the treatment to you and provide you with after-care instructions to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy. Following placement, periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implants, teeth and gums. Proper oral hygiene, good eating habits and regular dental visits will help maintain the life of your new implants.

Skill and technique on the part of the clinician are critical for achieving a natural looking result. At Falmouth Dental Associates our doctors are specialists with years of advanced training in Dental Implantology.
