At Calavera Hills Dental, we are proud to provide dental implant placement. If you have a missing tooth Dr. Christopher Layton can safely place a dental implant post that will later be topped with a dental restoration like a dental crown. Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.

Dental implants are replacement teeth that replace both the root and the crown of your tooth. Dental implants are made up of an implant post and an implant restoration. The implant post replaces the tooth root, thus anchoring your new tooth to your jawbone. The implant restoration restores the visible portion of the tooth or teeth. The restoration may be a single crown, a dental bridge, or a denture.

Dental implant placement is the first step in restoring your tooth. The dental implant will be surgically placed in the jawbone. After this procedure, a healing period will allow the implant post to fuse with your jawbone. After the healing period is complete, our dentist will create your custom dental restoration.
