Benefits of Dental Implants
Dr. Dham encourages patients to choose dental implants when possible for their long-term benefits. Dental implants provide exceptional support for lasting oral health.
Dental implants provide a wide range of benefits including:
- No dietary restrictions
- Natural looking and comfortable
- Affords bite stability
- Prevents shifting of teeth
- Promotes natural bone regeneration
- Prevents facial sagging
- Reduces risk of gum disease & gum recession
- Minimizes risk of additional tooth loss
Dr. Dham will provide each patient with a personalized dental consultation to determine if they are eligible for dental implants. Dental implants require substantial healthy bone tissue for successful results. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, or multiple implants may be placed to secure a dental bridge or denture.

Dental Implants What to Expect
Dental implants provide close to the equivalent stability and function of a natural human tooth. The implant, made of high-quality biocompatible medical grade titanium, is used surgically placed as a prosthetic root structure.
The dental implant post is surgically placed into the jaw. As the implant post begins to heal it fuses with the bone, promoting natural cell regeneration for long-term support and stability.
Implants typically take about 3-6 months to fully integrate with the jaw. Once Dr. Dham determines that the implant is stable, an abutment is attached to the implant, extending the small screw past the gum line. The abutment is used as an anchor holding the final dental restoration firmly in place.
Dr. Dham works with patients to build a dental restoration that will be secured using the dental implants. Using 3-D digital scanning and modern dental materials, a natural, beautiful restoration will be custom fit to your oral specifications. Once the implants are healed, the final restoration is placed. Many patients will wear a temporary restoration in the interim while waiting for their implants to heal.
