Dental Implants

implantDental implants are another option in replacing missing teeth.  Your dentist here at Ephraim Family Dental will surgically place below the gums an implant which will fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges, or a denture.  Once the jawbone heals around the implant, which can take 3-6 months, your dentist will place the final restoration, whether it is a crown, bridge, or denture.  These final restorations are anchored to the implant providing strength and stability.
