Dental implants are small titanium devices designed to replace lost tooth roots and provide the ultimate support to crowns, bridges, and dentures. After they are surgically placed in the jaw, they become permanently fused with the bone tissue over the course of three to six months. When this process is complete, you can expect that your replacement teeth will stay firmly in place at all times. Meanwhile, the stimulation your implants provide to the bone tissue will prevent the bone atrophy that normally follows tooth loss.

Dr. Grossman believes your smile and chewing system are like a fine watch. They should be beautiful and function with precision.
At your consultation, a thorough oral evaluation will be performed and detailed images of your mouth will be taken. We use this information to determine the best locations for each implant.
On the day of your procedure, a board-certified periodontist will surgically place the implants. This is performed by making small incisions in the gums and creating a pilot hole in the bone tissue. The titanium implant is then inserted into the jawbone. Finally, incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures.
Over the next few months, the implant post will fuse with the bone tissue as part of a process called osseointegration.
Once the osseointegration process is complete, approximately three to six months following implant placement, you will undergo a minor second surgery in which abutment devices are attached to the implants. These will connect your implants to your denture or other restorations. Once the gums have healed (usually in about two weeks), we can begin crafting your permanent restoration. We will provide a temporary restoration in the meantime. You can expect that each permanent replacement tooth you receive will look indistinguishable from a natural tooth.
