Dental Implants

Dental Implants are replacement tooth roots that provide a strong foundation for the placement of replacement crowns for your teeth. Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to – confidently eating, smiling, laughing, talking, kissing, and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your teeth.

The Benefits

Dental implants make life easier by improving your comfort, making eating easier, and improving your speech. They are also more durable and help your overall oral health.

Did you know?

  • Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth.

The Consultation

Dr. Welch has been performing dental implants in private practice since 2005. He makes the procedure fast and easy, with little stress involved. He begins the process with a thorough consultation, where he evaluates your teeth and answers all of your questions. His goal is to ensure that you feel safe and comfortable moving forward.

The Procedure

After the initial consultation, he will schedule you for the dental implant procedure. This is typically done with a local anesthetic that you would normally receive from your family dentist. This process takes approximately 20-30 minutes. You will then have the crown placed by your referring dentist.
