Here at Holger Dental Group, Dr. Meiser, places Implant Direct Implants.
The implant is usually made of titanium and is surgically placed by a dentist or dental specialist such as an oral surgeon. These screw-like parts are placed into the jawbone and are meant to imitate the root of the tooth.
Dental implants are changing the lives of those with missing teeth. By replacing both the crown and the root of a missing tooth, a dental implant can provide exceptional stability, security, and function to your smile. The dental implant itself is a man-made titanium screw that is surgically placed into the jawbone. Over a period of time, this implant will fuse with the surrounding jawbone to create a stable and strong foundation for a replacement tooth (implant restoration).
Depending on your treatment plan and how many teeth you are missing, your dental implant restoration could be one of the following:
Dr. Meiser has advanced training and years of experience placing dental implants. Under his watchful care, your implant will be created and placed to look and feel like a natural tooth. You’ll be able to enjoy eating the foods you love, speaking normally, and smiling with confidence once again!

Is It Painful?
Just as with any surgery, there can be some discomfort. Local anesthesia is used to eliminate any discomfort at the time of the procedure. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated. Your doctor will prescribe medications to ease any discomfort that may occur.
It is normal to have some small bruises and swelling in the gum and soft tissues. Usually, the discomfort, if any, is treated with an ordinary painkiller, such as ibuprofen, hydrocodone, or codeine. You should expect to be able to work the next day.
Your new implant tooth must be cared for and checked regularly, just like your natural teeth. Remember to brush and floss regularly.
