As part of a commitment to creating long-lasting dental solutions, Dr. Ray H. Morgan Jr. and Dr. Steven M. Shepperd offer dental implants as stable tooth replacements that can be utilized if you have one or more missing teeth. Replacing a tooth can be a huge step towards your ultimate goal of having a full and confident smile, as it is designed to be functional, long-lasting and blend in with the rest of your teeth.
The process of having a dental implant begins by surgically installing an implant post, which is generally made of titanium, into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This ensures that the implant will remain stable even through years of future use. Once the implant post has been installed, your mouth will require a period of healing to allow the bone time to mesh with the surgical post. After you have had time to heal, your restoration process can then continue. Based on your specific needs, our dentists will determine the type of restoration that will benefit you the most to be installed. This can include dental crowns, dental bridges, or a complete or partial denture.
