Dental Implants are the new standard for replacing missing teeth. Other than securely and firmly holding the restoration in place, they provide a strong tooth-root-like foundation, which preserves bone structure, gum tissue and lifelong teeth stability. An implant, which is a small titanium screw that gets surgically inserted into your jaw, takes 4 to 6 months to be fully integrated into your jawbone. After your bone has successfully developed around the implant, the restoration, whether crown, bridge or denture, can be safely attached to it.

Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear and tear. At Brookdale Dentistry, we’ll do what we see best fitting for your case after consulting with you, of course. Dr. Ali Shakib might recommend dental implants for the following benefits:
