What Are Dental Implants

Dental implants are permanent artificial teeth, which are secured to your jaw. Dental implant procedures have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device. The implants will still require regular oral hygiene in order to ensure they last long term.

 Dental Implants are used to replace teeth that need to be replaced due to disease, an injury, or as an alternative to dentures. The best part is that they look and function exactly like natural teeth.

Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat virtually anything, speak, and smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.

If like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a 3D dental radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by Dr. Puerto, or by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success. Inspired Dental can help you decide if dental implants are right for you.

What's The Procedure Like?

Though the procedure sounds frightening, generally patients will not feel any thing beyond some swelling and soreness afterwards. The procedure does utilize anesthesia and sedation. Over-the-counter pain medication is typically sufficient to deal with any discomfort following the procedure and those symptoms typically last only a day or so.


Getting dental implants will involve two surgical procedures. First, the implants are placed into the jawbone. This allows the implant to bond with the jawbone. Temporary teeth will be used, so there is as little disruption to your daily life. Once the implant has integrated fully into the jawbone, the second phase begins. This is where the temporary teeth are removed and Dr. Puerto and or restorative team will design a custom crown which will improve the function and aesthetic of your smile. From there on just treat  your dental implants like ordinary teeth.
