Dental Implants


If you are missing one or more teeth, you'll want to talk with our dentists about replacements that are as natural as possible. If dentures don't work for you, you may consider dental implants. Unlike dentures, which can be removed, our dentists can make dental implants are permanently anchored into the jaw itself.

You are a good candidate for dental implants if you have jawbone ridges that are in good shape and healthy oral tissues. When our dentists  insert the implant device into the jaw, a chemical and mechanical bond is formed. The jawbone actually grows into the implant.

When getting dental implants, you should select a dentist or dental team with in-depth knowledge and prior experience with all aspects of the treatment. At Bright Smile Cosmetic we have this expertise.

It is also important to know that implant treatment consists of two components: a surgical phase and a restorative phase.

Traditionally, a dental surgeon, like an oral surgeon or a periodontist, performs the surgical component. A general dentist, or prosthodontist and laboratory technician performs the restorative component. However, as implant dentistry has become more sophisticated, sometimes a dentist who specializes in restorative dentistry conducts the entire procedure.

At Bright Smile Cosmetic we begin with a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical and dental history, and a full clinical examination of the entire mouth and missing tooth area. The clinical exam should also include specific X-rays.

After assessing the patient, a comprehensive treatment plan can be devised. From that point, implants are surgically placed in the jawbone under local anesthesia.

The length of the healing time is based on the quality and quantity of bone, as well as the type of implant placed. After adequate healing is allowed to occur, the implant can be used to support a crown, bridge, or denture.



With dental implants at Bright Smile Cosmetic, you get a perfect fit, and they will look and feel as good as (or better than!) your original teeth.
