Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants have changed the field of dentistry in the last twenty-five years by enabling a level of tooth restoration previously unimaginable. A dental implant is a small, lightweight titanium post that is used to replace the root of a tooth. The use of titanium, one of the strongest alloys, ensures that the dental implant lasts a long time. Also, ceramic implants are now available!

Although a minor surgical procedure is all that is needed to insert the dental implant into the missing tooth’s empty space, it takes a specialized team to ensure that the procedure goes smoothly. 
Dr. Runne and his team have had years of advanced training in implant surgery, ensuring that you are in the best of hands. After this implant procedure, the implant needs to heal for a few months before the final crown is secured. What happens during these few months of healing is the implant fuses to the bone encircling it. Quite literally, a new tooth is forged! 

We have several options for dental implants here at Dr. Runne’s Rockford dental practice. We can replace one or multiple teeth, we replace all teeth and fix them inside your mouth so that they are never removed, or we can create removable dentures for the top and/or the bottom teeth. 

The main question Dr. Runne and our Rockford dental team can help you answer is “Are dental implants the right the thing for me?” Then we can go through the multiple dental implant options to ensure that we come up with the best solution with you. If you have thought about dental implants in the past, or if you have a missing tooth nagging you, stop by Dr. Runne’s dental office in Rockford today and ask us about our dental implant options!
