What are Implants?

Dental implants are tooth root form medical grade titanium posts. These posts are placed into the jaw bone by Dr. Jorgenson during removal of a tooth root or by surgically accessing the jaw bone with a simple soft tissue flap procedure. Once placed the titanium implant bonds with the patients bone creating a strong foundation for  new porcelain crowns and/or  fixed or removable dentures.

Implants

With the advances in implant dentistry, teeth that have been lost or severely damaged can now be replaced with dental implants. Even dentures that fit poorly can be retrofitted and stabilized with dental implants, restoring both the ability to chew effectively and alow patients to speak with confidence once again.

As a board credentialed dental implant surgeon and member of the AAID (American Academy of Implant Dentistry) and the AO (Academy of Osseointegration)  Dr. Jorgenson's commitment to advanced continuing education and training keeps him in the forefront of dental implant surgery and the ever changing innovations of this challenging field of dentistry.

The Surgical Procedure

Dr. Jorgenson will place the implant within your jaw bone. For the first three to four months following surgery the implants are beneath the gum surface bonding with the patients jaw bone. Patients wear temporary crowns, bridges or dentures during this phase. After this healing process Dr. Jorgenson will then uncover the dental implant and attach a small post which will act as anchors for crowns or dentures. The entire procedure usually takes 4-6 months. Most dental implants can be placed at the same time as tooth extraction.
