Would you like to learn more about dental implants from your Huntsville, AL, oral surgeon, Dr. S. Clint Hudson?

Dental implants are synthetic oral appliances that mimic the appearance and functionality of natural teeth, making them an excellent replacement option for people who have lost teeth. Implants can replace single teeth, multiple teeth or all teeth. Available from the Huntsville, AL, office of your oral surgeon, Dr. S. Clint Hudson, implants are a smart investment because they can last a lifetime when taken care of properly.

More about dental implants

The dental implant consists of a titanium post that's inserted in the area where the lost tooth used to be. The titanium post, a biocompatible material, fuses with the rest of the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This process takes 3 to 6 months to complete from when your oral surgeon inserts the post in a patient's jaw.

Following this period, you'll come back to our Huntsville office to have a connector and crown inserted in the surgical area. The crown will match the rest of your teeth and the temporary crown will be removed. You'll then walk out with a rejuvenated smile.

What are some advantages of dental implants?

  • Dental implants are one of the most successful procedures with a 95% success rate.
  • Dental implants prevent shrinkage or sinkage of the jawbone by providing additional support.
  • They are used for several other procedures like bridges.
  • Implants are easy to take care of and can last a lifetime if taken care of properly.
