Missing teeth create problems with surrounding teeth, facial distortion, and jawbone deterioration, leading to a less youthful appearance.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a titanium or ceramic post that act as your natural root and supports a crown that functions as your tooth. The solution looks, feels and function like your own teeth.

How Are Dental Implants Placed?

Dental implants are surgically placed by a specialist like Dr. Sharon S. Russell. Dental implants require one to two surgical procedures. During the first operation, Dr. Russell places the dental implants into your jawbone with special instruments. It takes three to six months for the implants to fuse with the surrounding bone and the tissue to heal. The implants are below the surface of the gums during this phase.

When your jawbone has healed, Dr. Russell attaches a small post (abutments) to the dental implants. Then the restoring doctor ( general dentist or prosthodontics) will put the abutments with the artificial teeth (crowns) that look and work like your real teeth. These are permanent and if properly cared for, provide tooth restorations that last a lifetime.

How Long Do Dental Implants Take?

It can take up to a half-hour to place one dental implant in the jawbone; if Dr. Russell is placing several implants, it will take longer. Your jaw can take anywhere from three to six months to heal completely. The results can’t be matched by other procedures with a high long-term success rate.
