What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium or zirconia posts that are surgically planted below the gumline and into the jawbone. Because titanium and zirconia are biocompatible, the implants can fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration, allowing them to function like your natural tooth roots. After this process, Dr. Mackie can restore any number of missing teeth by securing custom-crafted crowns, bridges, or dentures to the implant posts to complete your new smile.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  • Initial Consultation: The first step of every dental implant treatment is a consultation with Dr. Mackie. During this appointment, our team will examine your mouth and help you determine whether dental implants are right for you. Before you commit to moving forward with the treatment, we’ll answer any questions you may have and provide you with a timeline and detailed cost estimate.
  • Dental Implant Surgery: Dr. Mackie partners with leading specialists in Corinth for this part of the process, ensuring that your implants are placed precisely to maximize their lifespan.
  • Osseointegration: For the following three to six months after your surgery, your implants will fuse with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This allows them to act as your tooth roots, supplying ample blood flow and stimulation to the bone to keep it from eroding.
  • Placing the Final Prosthetics: After you’ve healed from your surgery, our team will place small metal connector pieces on the tops of your implants. These will anchor your dental crown, bridge, or denture securely in place to resemble natural teeth.
