What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth root that is placed directly into the jawbone. It’s a small titanium post that resembles a screw, and once in position, it bonds directly with the bone just like a real tooth root. This makes it extremely stable, and it can be topped with a crown, bridge, or denture to bring back as many teeth as a patient needs.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  • Initial Dental Implant Consultation: Are dental implants a good choice for you? Let’s talk about it! Dr. Gramse will examine your mouth and go over your various replacement options so you can choose the one that best suits your needs and situation.
  • Dental Implant Surgery: If you agree to get dental implants, you’ll have the placement surgery performed by a local specialist who has worked with Dr. Gramse for years.
  • Dental Implant Osseointegration/Abutment: While you’re healing, osseointegration will take place, which means your implants become firmly attached to your bone. After a few months, a small connector piece called an abutment will be placed on your implant(s), which will attach directly to your restoration(s).
  • Delivery of Dental Implant Restoration(s): The big day has finally arrived! Dr. Gramse will place your specially-made crown, bridge, or denture to your implant(s), completing the process.
