Dental implants are discussed whenever a tooth has to be extracted or whenever a tooth is missing. They are most commonly made of titanium. They are like screws and are placed in the jaw bone to act as artificial tooth roots. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone and become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.
Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone by actually helping to stimulate bone growth. Dental implants are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth. Implants allow the new teeth to feel, look, and function naturally. Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth, and can also be used to secure loose-fitting dentures.
If dental implants are right for your needs, Dr. Worrell will take a cone beam CT, three-dimensional X-ray, and digital three-dimensional impressions to plan your implant treatment. At your next appointment, your implants are placed and after three to six months of healing, the implants are finally tested for stability. Then, we restore your dental implant using a custom crown or bridge to complete your implant restoration.
Once your implants and restorations are in place, you’ll need to care for them in the same manner as your natural teeth. Brush and floss every day and visit us for your recommended hygiene and exam schedule.

“Dr. Worrel and his team are great! I had two fillings done yesterday. I had a broken tooth and a cavity. I didnt need local anesthesia because they used an awesome technology that used a laser to numb my tooth! Dr. Worrel was very kind and asked me if i had any discomfort throughout the procedure.”
