Dental implants are one of the best options to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Implants can be placed in the area where natural teeth used to be and act as artificial roots. After implants are placed in the jaw, time is allowed for the bone to heal. Once they are strong enough to support a patients’ natural chewing forces, our Dentist will restore the implants with crowns or can attach a denture to the implants.
Our Dentist and an Oral Surgeon will decide if a patient is a good candidate to have implants placed, based upon the patients’ medical history, oral hygiene and availability of adequate bone.
Patients who have implants are given specific instructions for care and can expect great long term success if maintained properly.
