We are experts at placing and restoring implants
Dental implants are an excellent choice for patients who have experienced tooth loss or have a tooth that is otherwise unrestorable. Dental implants have revolutionized the way missing teeth can be replaced and can restore your smile to its natural appearance and function. Drs. Robert Gemmell and Ty Jaros provide a wide range of treatment options ranging from replacing a single tooth to full-arch implant restoration.
What to expect from dental implants
Dental implants are titanium posts made to act as a natural tooth root replacement. During oral surgery, these restorations are placed strategically into the bone of the jaw. Then, time is needed for the implant to fuse to the bone through a process known as osseointegration. Osseointegration allows for natural bone growth stimulation after the implant has been placed, which gives the implant its stability and foundation. The implant top, called the abutment, is restored with a crown, bridge, or denture to replace one, several, or all the teeth in the dental arch. Dental implants have many other advantages that make them a quality choice for replacing missing teeth.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants are chosen by many patients who are interested in enhancing their smiles with a no-fuss, permanent solution. Some of the benefits of these restorations include:
- Ability to maintain and improve natural bone of the jaw
- Solid foundation for proper chewing
- Natural appearance when restored with porcelain restorations
- Versatility, allowing for the replacement of one or all the teeth
- Permanency, lasting a lifetime with proper care
- A fixed prosthetic that does not need to be removed
- Functionality just like a natural tooth
Who is a candidate?
During your initial implant consultation visit, we will take a digital 3D scan to assess the condition of the jaw and bone that will support the implant. Based upon this scan, we can determine if you are a candidate for implant placement. The best candidates for dental implants are patients who have maintained sufficient bone of the jaw to support the implant and ensure successful implantation.

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants.
