What are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are a specialized dental procedure. Patients in our office who choose to have an implant to restore tooth loss are referred to a specialist whose primary focus is implant dentistry. Our work with implants will come after the implant has healed. The focus then is to place an integrated restoration within the implant. We work closely with specialists to ensure the final restoration.
Use Dental Implants to replace a tooth.
An implant can be a replacement for a single tooth or is the basis for a bridge. An Implant is also placed in a group to support a denture. Implants have a wide variety of applications and a very high success rate. The healing process and bone integration for an implant take time. For a successful outcome, you cannot rush the healing process. Patients choosing implants should be aware that it is imperative to maintain good oral care to ensure the success of the dental implant. Good home care and regular hygiene cleanings on a regular schedule will ensure your implants are healthy and strong.
Patients in our dental office can choose implants as a restorative option for a fixed, natural alternative to replacing a missing tooth, stabilizing a denture, or completing a fixed bridge.
