About Dental Implants

Dental implants consist of two elements: a small titanium post and a porcelain crown. Together, these prosthetic devices create a permanent replacement tooth. First, the post is inserted into the gum tissue where your missing tooth used to be. Once it heals, functions as an artificial root and supports the crown. The crown is attached to the post via an abutment. It’s designed to look and feel just like a natural tooth, for a seamless restoration.

The Dental Implant Process

If you’re interested in a dental implant, the first step is to set up a consultation with Dr. Girgis to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Since implants are permanent, patients must have healthy gums and adequate jaw bone to support the implant.

Dr. Girgis will begin the procedure by cleaning the area around your missing tooth. Then, he’ll make a small incision in the gum tissue and place the titanium post into your jaw. You’ll be given a temporary crown to wear until your gum is completely healed.

When the post has bonded permanently with the surrounding jaw and gum tissue, Dr. Girgis will replace the temporary crown with a custom-made, natural-looking porcelain crown. After this, you’ll leave our office with confidence and a new, improved smile!

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

The many benefits of dental implants are quickly making them the gold standard when it comes to replacing missing teeth:

  • Totally natural look and feel – A dental implant looks, feels, and functions just like your natural tooth. You won’t be able to tell the difference!
  • Stain-resistant, requiring no special care – Porcelain is nonporous and stain resistant. Plus, once placed, your dental implant does not require any special care. Simply brush and floss normally, and don’t forget about your six-month checkup!
  • Permanent replacements– Dental implants usually last 30+ years, and with proper oral care, can easily last for the rest of your life. This makes them a great long-term investment in your dental health.
