Dental Implants

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth that have been lost due to injury, tooth decay, or periodontal disease. Implants are often a better alternative to bridges or dentures. We have restored hundreds of missing teeth with implants.

To see if you are a candidate for an implant, an oral surgeon will evaluate the area of the missing tooth. If the area is healthy, the oral surgeon will place a titanium screw (implant) into the bone. This screw acts as root of the tooth. Once the implant is placed, the tissue and bone support need to heal around the screw, making sure the implant is anchored in. After the healing phase, which usually lasts about 3 months, Dr. Gallagher will create a crown that fits onto the implant, restoring the empty space. Implants will fit and feel very similar to your original teeth.
