What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a natural-looking prosthetic tooth replacement surgically placed in your mouth. Implanting the restorations in your jawbone creates a stable bond that can’t be matched by dentures or any other type of restoration. Their stability ensures your dental implants won’t come out or shift position while you’re talking or eating.
Your dental implant is composed of three parts:
- The fixture, which secures the implant to your jawbone
- The abutment, which connects the fixture to the restoration
- The porcelain crown restoration, which is placed on top of the abutment
Of these three pieces, only the porcelain crown designed to blend perfectly with your smile will be visible.
The Dental Implant Process
During your free consultation with Dr. Jay Stockdale, you’ll receive a complimentary CBCT scan and an opportunity to discuss the results. If dental implants are the best option for you, we’ll create your treatment plan and schedule your implant placement. The process begins with implant placement, a small titanium device attached to your jawbone. Over time, the implant fixture will integrate with your jawbone in a natural process called osseointegration, creating a strong foundation for the porcelain crown. In some cases, patients require supplemental treatments to prepare for the implant process. Dr. Stockdale will discuss these treatments before you decide to go ahead with the implant process.
Full-Arch Restoration with All-On-4®
If you’re missing most or all of your teeth, you may benefit from a full-arch restoration option from All-on-4®. This specialized treatment uses just four dental implants to support a natural-looking full-arch prosthetic.
Following All-on-4 implant placement, you’ll leave our office with a fully functional temporary prosthetic. Dr. Stockdale will place your permanent restoration once your body has had time to adjust to the implants.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants can last for a lifetime with the proper care. They consist of sturdy, biocompatible materials that become a natural part of your jawbone. Your implant will function and feel like a natural tooth, and you’ll care for it in the same way.
All you have to do is brush and floss your teeth like usual. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings also ensure your implant is in its best shape.
How do you take care of your dental implants after the procedure?
Right after your procedure, it’s crucial to be careful around the surgical site. Don’t use a straw, avoid harsh spitting, and eat soft foods until you’ve healed. After your surgery, your implant provider will provide detailed care instructions.
To care for your dental implants daily once you’ve healed, brush your teeth twice and floss once daily. Dental implants don’t require specialized home care — you can treat them like natural teeth. Regular dental visits also keep your implants in their best shape.
