What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots. These implants provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth, whether it’s a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full arch. Once the implants integrate with the jawbone, they become a permanent part of the mouth structure, offering stability and durability similar to natural teeth.

Why Replace Your Missing Teeth?

Replacing missing teeth is essential for maintaining oral health and preventing potential complications. When teeth are lost, neighboring teeth may shift, leading to bite misalignment, jaw joint problems, and further tooth loss. Additionally, gaps in the smile can impact speech, digestion, and self-confidence. Dental implants offer a permanent solution to restore function and aesthetics, improving overall quality of life.

Benefits of Dental Implants

The benefits of dental implants extend beyond aesthetics to enhance oral health and overall well-being. Some key advantages include:

Natural Appearance

Implants closely mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, restoring your smile's aesthetics and boosting confidence.

Improved Functionality

Unlike removable dentures, implants provide stability and allow for normal biting and chewing, enabling you to enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions.

Preservation of Bone Health

Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving facial structure, which can occur with missing teeth.


With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a durable and cost-effective solution for tooth replacement.

Our Implant Services

At Southridge Dental, we offer a comprehensive range of implant services tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient:

Single-Tooth Implants

Ideal for replacing individual missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth, single-tooth implants restore functionality and aesthetics seamlessly.

Implant-Supported Bridge

An implant-supported bridge offers a stable and durable solution for patients missing multiple adjacent teeth, filling the gap with natural-looking prosthetic teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Traditional dentures can be secured with dental implants, eliminating the need for adhesives and providing a secure fit for enhanced comfort and confidence.


Our All-on-X solutions, including All-on-4, All-on-5, and All-on-6, are revolutionary techniques for complete arch restoration. By strategically placing a minimal number of implants, we can support a fixed prosthesis, restoring an entire upper or lower arch of teeth with unparalleled stability and aesthetics.

What to Expect When Getting a Dental Implant

The dental implant process typically involves several stages, including:

  1. Initial Consultation: During your first visit, our experienced implant dentist will evaluate your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
  2. Implant Placement: The dental implant surgery involves placing the titanium posts into the jawbone. While this procedure is performed under local anesthesia, sedation options are available for patients with dental anxiety or complex cases.
  3. Healing Period: After implant placement, a healing period of several months is necessary for osseointegration, during which the implants fuse with the surrounding bone tissue.
  4. Abutment Placement: Once the implants have integrated successfully, abutments are attached to the implants to connect the prosthetic teeth securely.
  5. Prosthesis Placement: Finally, custom-crafted crowns, bridges, or dentures are affixed to the abutments, restoring your smile’s function and aesthetics.

Throughout the implant process, our compassionate team will guide you every step of the way, ensuring your comfort and satisfaction with the results.
