DENTAL IMPLANTS Dublin ohio

The best option for replacing missing teeth

Rediscover your confidence to eat, speak, laugh, & enjoy life.

Dental implants are metal anchors that act as tooth root substitutes. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like your natural teeth. You can regain the ability to eat virtually anything and smile with confidence!

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants are metal anchors, which act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone, and small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrude through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.

At Legacy Family Dental your health needs are our highest priority. First, we will do an exam to determine if implants are the right path for your oral health. Once determined, we will perform two surgical procedures. The first procedure is to place the implant in your jawbone. It takes about 3-6 months for this implant to fully integrate with your gums. The second procedure is to put the replacement teeth over the posts for your new teeth!

Most patients do not experience any disruption their daily life. As a surgical procedure, there can be some minor discomfort. But at Legacy Family Dental we have the experience to make dental implants surprisingly comfortable.

First we do an exam to determine if implants are the right path for your oral health. Then we do two surgical procedures. First is to place the implant in your jawbone. It takes about 3-6 months for this implant to fully integrate with your gums. Second is to put the replacement teeth over the posts for your new teeth!

Several factors can determine the timeline for each patient, including overall dental health, the teeth needing to be replaced, and if a tooth extraction or grafting is required before placement. Typically, the process can take up to six months. The implant will first be placed by a surgeon and patients will wait a few months before a final crown is put on.

Dental implants generally take 6-8 months to allow for the implant to fully bond to your gums and for the new tooth to be custom-designed.

Dental implants look and perform just like natural teeth. Positioned in the gums to give a natural appearance, they prevent bone loss in the area of the missing tooth. Patients with implants can typically brush, floss, eat and drink normally knowing their teeth will not move – leading to a much more confident smile.
