Dental implants are a perfect solution for anyone who is missing one or more teeth. Our preferred method of tooth replacement at Riverfront Dental LLC, dental implants are a surgical treatment designed to restore your smile’s natural look, feel, and functionality. Because dental implants are one of our more involved treatments, Dr. Howe will carefully examine your smile and determine if dental implants are best for you. If it is determined that dental implants are right for your smile, we will walk you through each step of the implant process to ensure you are confident with your treatment and results.
To place dental implants, our skilled dental team will follow these general measures:
• Surgically place a small titanium post into your jawbone
• Allow the gums and bone to fully heal as the post fuses to your jaw
• Place an attachment on the metal post called an abutment
• Complete the dental implant with a dental restoration, such as a crown or bridge
