Dental Implants

Gaps in your smile caused by missing teeth can now be corrected with dental implants. Dental implants can give you back the functional smile that you’ve been missing.

Tooth Loss & Your Health

Tooth loss can be a terrible strain to your overall health and well-being.

A missing tooth can lead to a variety of oral health problems, reduce self-confidence and negatively impact quality of life in a variety of ways.

What is a dental implant?

An implant is an artificial tooth root and is the best replica of your natural teeth. The tooth is restored by placing an implant in the bone and placing a crown on top of the implant.

The implant restoration will look and function like a natural tooth and provides the added benefit of supporting the teeth around it, preventing further bone and gum loss.

How long does it take for my dental implant to heal?

To aid in patient recovery, Dr. Headley offers PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) accelerated healing treatments. PRF is a simple technique that effectively accelerates soft and hard tissue healing. This treatment takes very little time and helps maximize the bone mass regeneration process surrounding the implant, reducing the time for the patient to fully heal.

As your soft tissue heals, the implant ‘root’ will bond with the bone in your jaw.

Although different patients experience different healing times, it can take up to several months for the soft tissue to fully heal. 

The soft tissue will need to be completely healed before we can proceed with implant restoration. The implant will be completed with the placement of a dental crown.

What can dental implants be used for?

Implants can be placed for each single missing tooth with individual crowns attached to each implant. They can also be used to secure dentures by placing several implants and attaching the dentures to the implants.

Implant dentures offer more stability than traditional dentures – the teeth stay in place unlike dentures.
