For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual. replacement teeth, bridges or a denture.

Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.

Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by your dentist will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.

An important factor for success of implants is the dentist’s knowledge of and expertise in occlusion. Occlusion is the ability to keep the bite balanced and all the teeth meshing correctly with each other in perfect harmony.

Dr. Walsh’s knowledge of occlusion is well known and he works closely with an oral surgeon when implants are being placed in his patient’s gums. Dr. Walsh is certified in dental implant restorations. So when your implants are finished being placed by an oral surgeon he can finish up the rest of the process and maintain your implants. He often sits in on the surgery to ensure the implants are placed in the perfect spot to accommodate the future crown and the patient’s ability to chew comfortably when the procedure is finished.
