Can you replace my missing tooth?

Dental Implants FAQ | Davis Dental CareDr. Hans Smith and our entire team at Davis Dental Care are sympathetic to patients who face extractions and tooth loss. We provide a wide range of treatment options to restore your ability to eat and speak properly as well as restoring the beauty of your smile. 

One of the most common dental treatments our patients choose to replace missing teeth is a dental implant. Dental implants provide the most convenient, long-term treatment options to solve the problem of missing teeth. They are esthetic and allow you to eat all of the foods you love without restriction.

Dental implant placement and restoration requires several steps. A full evaluation in our office will determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Next, Dr. Hans Smith will surgically place your dental implant in your bone. This sounds like a dramatic treatment method, but patients recover quickly with very little discomfort. Your surgery will be painless as we will completely numb the area.

Initial healing happens quickly, but your dental implant will need time to integrate with your bone. This process generally takes several months. Finally, we will provide you with a custom dental implant crown to complete your smile. Your dental implant will match your natural teeth and complement your smile.

With the proper care, dental implants can last a long time – even a lifetime!
