At our dental practice, we are dedicated to enriching the lives of patients who choose and cherish excellence. Our office is proud to offer patients the premier option for their tooth replacement needs: dental implants. Dental implants restore the look, feel, and functionality of your missing tooth. Involving a surgical procedure, dental implants include a titanium post which is allowed to fuse together with your jawbone. Once fully healed, this post will provide your dental implant with tooth-root functionality. By replacing all aspects of your missing tooth including the tooth-roots, you will get many benefits that you simply won’t find in other dental restoration options.
As highly trained and experienced prosthodontists, Drs. Ousborne and Esterson can provide comprehensive restorative dental care for patients with missing teeth and related dental problems.

What are the benefits of dental implants?
There are many benefits to dental implants. Dental implants are a stable, secure solution that lets you avoid dietary restrictions and preserve your facial appearance while also preventing bone loss. Patients with dental implants get improved form, function, and speech, so you can confidently smile, and comfortably chew, and speak. Additionally, dental implants provide patients with an excellent esthetic result and a stable solution to replacing missing teeth.
How long does the dental implant process take?
The dental implant process can take several months due to the healing time required. Because the titanium post will need to be surgically implanted, the implant site must fully heal to allow the post to fuse with your jawbone. This may take several months to complete the final restoration. However, a temporary prosthesis will often be inserted during the interim. Following the healing period, an abutment will need to be added to the post. This is a minor procedure but will come with an additional healing time. After a few more weeks, a dental crown will be applied to the abutment and you will have a fully restored tooth with tooth-root functionality.
