A dental implant is an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth for reasons like injury or periodontal disease. To begin the implant process, the implant is surgically positioned into the jaw. This post will act as a permanent “root” for the implanted tooth. Once it is in place, the surrounding bone and tissue needs time to heal, requiring multiple visits for the completion.
Implant placement requires special training, as it is a surgical procedure. Our team is highly-trained and very experienced in implant placement.
Implants require healthy gums and adequate bone support. A patient must also be committed to excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits, as these are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
