Do you wish to replace your tooth with a permanent and reliable product that will give you a lifetime of functionality? If so, Dr. Tatum & Dr. Cox are here to grant your wish with dental implants!

Dental implants in Opelika, Alabama, are fixed, permanent products that replace both your tooth and its root. The implants have the ability to improve many characteristics of yourself and your smile, including your appearance, speech, comfort, self-esteem, and oral health. It is also a durable and convenient option that makes talking, eating, and smiling much easier.

The process of installing the implants does, however, take some time to complete. It will first begin with your dentist placing a titanium post into the bone socket of the missing tooth. The bone will then need to heal, which could take anywhere from six to twelve weeks. When your bone has healed, your dentist will attach a connector post that will eventually hold your tooth. Then, we will make impressions of your tooth and will send them to the in-office dental lab where your tooth will be created. Once it is ready, your dentist will place the tooth into your mouth to give you your new-and-improved smile!
