Implants are another method of replacing missing teeth. If a patient is determined to be an ideal candidate, dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or multiple. An implant is surgically placed into your jawbone by a specialist. We can then restore the implant in our office with a crown to replace a missing tooth. If multiple teeth are missing, two or more implants can be placed to anchor bridges. Dental implants can also be used to help retain dentures.
Dental implants require thoughtful planning and coordination between specialists and restorative dentists for the best results. We work with multiple trusted specialists to provide optimal care for you throughout your implant treatment.
Implants should be cared for like any other tooth. Regular brushing and flossing and routine dental visits are integral to the success of dental implant treatment.
