What are dental implants?

Dental implants are metal posts that your provider at DNTL Studio places into your jawbone during an in-office procedure. Once fused with your natural bone, they top the implant with a permanent crown, which looks and feels like a natural tooth. 

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants replace missing teeth due to gum disease, tooth decay, or injury. The team at DNTL Studio considers you a candidate after a consultation. 


Before placing implants, they determine if you have sufficient bone density in your jaw to support implants. If necessary, they may treat any gum disease or perform a bone graft procedure before moving forward with implants.

What are the benefits of dental implants?


Implants are an excellent solution for a seamless smile. They improve not only the appearance of your smile but your oral health as well. While dentures often slip and slide, you don’t have to worry about that with dental implants. 

Other benefits include:

  • Improve your ability to speak and eat properly
  • Help you maintain bone density in your jaw
  • Fill in smile gaps to keep the rest of your smile in alignment
  • Distribute balance in your bite

Without natural tooth roots or implants (which mimic tooth roots), the bone in your jaw will naturally start to deteriorate. This can change the overall shape of your face, leading to other issues like facial sagging.

What is the process for getting dental implants?


The process for getting dental implants and crowns takes place over several months. During your first visit at DNTL Studio, your provider makes a small incision in your gumline to place the implant. 


As the titanium post fuses with your jawbone, you return to the office so your dentist can place the abutment (an attachment that will connect to your dental crown). 


After bonding the crown to the abutment, your provider at DNTL Studio refines your bite. When you leave the office, you’ll be ready to show off your beautiful, new smile. 

DNTL Studio strives to improve the patient expereince. We use the revolutionary iTero scanner, which is the industry standard  for intraoral scanning. The scanner produces the most detailed 3D scans of any scanner without the discomfort of traditional impression methods.
