Dental Implants


What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are anchors that are implanted into a jawbone that help hold replacement teeth in place. The root of an implant sits beneath the gum line and the tooth (crown) is attached to the root. Implants function and feel very similar to natural teeth. They can be used to replace individual teeth as well as for bridges and dentures.

  • Dental implants let you eat the foods you love.
  • Dental Implants are the only proven way to prevent bone loss after the loss of natural teeth.
  • Research shows that implant-supported prostheses increase patient comfort.
  • 70% of the U.S. population is missing at least one tooth.

Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. While these are all serious issues, many people do not know that tooth loss also leads to bone loss.

When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink (or atrophy) and becomes brittle from lack of exercise. Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.


Dental Implant Consultation

Dental Implants are a great treatment option for our patients. We believe that it is our responsibility to provide information and answer questions to help prepare you for your dental implant procedure.

Dr. Oshetski and his skilled and caring dental implant treatment coordinator, Vanessa Cormier, will clearly explain every step of the procedure and make it simple for you to understand. Diagnostic and supplemental information will be collected to create a treatment plan for your consideration.

During the consultation, Dr. Oshetski will dedicate this time to analyzing your teeth and gums, utilizing diagnostic technology to address your questions or concerns. This appointment will give you a chance to acclimate yourself to our implant focused dental facility and discover the numerous amenities available to you.


Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

During your consultation, Dr. Oshetski will evaluate and discuss your dental health with you so that you have a complete understanding of the options available to you.


Dental Implants Process

The dental implants process involves a few steps:

First – Implants are placed into the jawbone to take the place of the root of the missing tooth.

Second – Once your mouth has healed and the implant has fused with the bone, Dr. Oshetski will take impressions of your teeth & bite to help fabricate an abutment (connector post) and crown.

Third – The abutment and crown are then attached to this implant, completing the dental implant process.
