Dental Implants in Travelers Rest
You don’t have to live with missing teeth. Instead, opt for the tooth replacement option preferred by patients and dentists alike. Dental implants are permanent, and the look, feel, and function like natural teeth, so you can get back to enjoying talking, eating, and smiling with ease again.

What Are Dental Implants?
Full dental implants consist of three separate parts: the implant itself, which is a small titanium screw that is placed into the jawbone; the abutment, which sits on the implant; and the restoration, which connects to the implant via the abutment and sits above the gumline. The restoration is the part of the implant that looks like your tooth and completes your smile.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Provide a strong, permanent tooth replacement option
- Look, feel, and function like natural teeth
- Don’t require special care — brush and floss like normal
- Last a lifetime with proper care
Dental Implants Procedure
Before we begin, we’ll have you come in for a consultation with Dr. Ghimire. She will evaluate the health of your mouth and jawbone, as well as your dental needs and lifestyle, to determine if dental implants are right for you. If they are, we’ll bring you back in for the procedure. First, the implants are surgically placed into your jawbone. Over the course of a few months, as your mouth heals, the titanium material fuses with your jawbone to create a solid foundation for the restoration. Once fused, you’ll come back in so we can create and place your restoration — a crown, bridge, or implant-supported denture depending on your needs.
