Have you lost one or multiple teeth? Are you searching for a tooth replacement that is strong, natural looking, and permanent? If so, dental implants might be just what your smile needs. The process for getting a dental implant includes three main steps:

  • First, the implant post is surgically implanted in the jawbone by an oral surgeon. This ensures that your restoration is stable by replacing the missing tooth root. During a period of healing, the bone tissues bond with the biocompatible implant to form a strong foundation.
  • The second step is the placement of the abutment which is also placed by the oral surgeon. This is a small attachment that sits on top of the implant post.
  • Finally, Dr. Toups attaches the implant restoration. This replaces the crown (the portion of the tooth visible above the gums). Based on which teeth are missing, Dr. Toups may recommend a dental bridge, a dental crown, a partial denture, or a complete denture as your implant restoration.
