What are dental implants?

Dental implants are one of the most effective tooth replacement options in modern dentistry. Designed to replace both the crown and root of a missing tooth, a dental implant can restore function, health, strength, and beauty to your smile. At Luth & Heideman Center for Dental Care, our experienced dentists place the implants into the jawbone and, after a healing period, attach a custom implant crown or implant-retained denture, depending on your individual dental needs and the number of missing teeth. When complete, your dental implant will look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.

Do I need a dental implant?

Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement choice for patients who are missing teeth. Whether you are missing just one tooth, a few teeth, or all of the natural teeth, dental implants can effectively restore your smile. Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman will explain all of our tooth replacements options to you and will help you determine which option best fits your specific needs. The implant process does require several months, but the results are incredible – you may even forget that you were ever missing teeth!
