How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are your perfect solution for a missing or extracted tooth caused by either injury to the tooth or decay. Dental implants look and function the same as your natural teeth. Dental implants are permanent teeth replacements that will allow you to live your life just as you did with your real teeth.

Understanding the Dental Implants Process
Our highly experienced implant specialist, Dr. Greg Broyde, will take photos of your mouth and gums using a scanner to create a guideline for your implant treatment and walk you through and explain the dental plans and implant procedure.
The procedure consists of titanium rods that fuse to your jaw and gum tissues to have a base for dental accessories like crowns and artificial teeth to be placed on top. Our procedure is a permanent solution for your missing teeth, giving you the confidence of a new, charismatic, lifelong smile.
Preparing for Your Dental Implant Placement
Your dental implant placement can often be done on the same day you arrive for your first appointment if you are a qualifying candidate for dental implants. However, there can be a few reasons that may delay your treatment process. If your tooth has been extracted due to tooth decay, it is important to wait three months for the site to heal on the lower jaw and four months if it is on the upper jaw. Then, if bone grafting was applied, it should be left to heal for six months with our experienced dentist’s approval before placing an implant.

Dental Implant Surgery
Our dentist, Dr. Broyde, has extensive experience making this procedure fast and efficient, and in many cases, you can get the smile of your dreams on the same day you come in for your appointment. Dr. Broyde will place titanium posts into your gums and bond them to the jaw to replicate roots that will help stimulate the jaw and create a foundation for an artificial tooth or whichever dental accessory is best for you.
Abutment and Crown Placement
After we place your dental implant, our experienced dentist will place an abutment, which will serve as the connector for the crown and the implant. The abutment we use will depend on whether the crown is screwed in or cemented in. Both provide a long-term solution for your new natural teeth and a perfectly aligned smile.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants last a lifetime and are a permanent solution for your new lifelong smile. Since they are made from titanium, they are durable and strong, allowing them to last significantly longer than bridges. Dental implants are a benefit plan for your permanent longterm smile.
Why Dental Implants Work
Dental implants mimic roots by being bonded to the jaw. The jaw accepts this because your jaw wants and needs something to stimulate it. The rods we use are permanent and reliable, so you will have that new confident smile for a lifetime. The implant is designed to have a crown screw or cement to it so it can be just like a real natural tooth, but even stronger.
What Kind of Dentist Places Dental Implants?
Implant dentistry specialists will place the dental implants. Luckily for our dental office, we have Dr. Greg Broyde, who is an experienced, professional, and very friendly dentist with extensive education in this field and continually keeps himself educated with the latest science for implants.
