Implant Dentistry

Implants are an excellent choice for replacing missing teeth or helping denture wearers to chew, speak and wear their dentures more naturally. An implant is a titanium post used to replace the root of a missing tooth. A crown is then placed onto the implant to replace a single missing tooth. For multiple missing teeth, more than one implant may be used with multiple crowns.

Implant dentistry can replace an entire set of failing teeth. We begin the process with a thorough examination and patient consultation. Next we will have the replacement teeth fabricated with the help of a dental laboratory, which is then followed by a visit to the oral surgeon. The oral surgeon will then remove the failing natural teeth, place the implants and the new replacement teeth, all in one appointment. This will enable you to leave with your new smile. We will then continue to monitor your dental health care and new teeth with regular dental visits. The same procedure is EXCELLENT for those wanting to get rid of loose, painful, or uncomfortable dentures.
