Dental Implant Surgery replaces tooth roots with metal, screw-like posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function like real teeth. It can offer a welcome alternative to dentures or bridgework that doesn’t fit well.
If your dentist finds you to be a candidate for a dental implant and refers you to us, we will conduct a thorough, comprehensive examination and review your medical and dental history. If there are no systemic medical issues, we will take x-rays and create impressions of your teeth and gum tissue, which will give us an accurate model of your mouth.
A single tooth dental implant will often be recommended for people who have experienced a traumatic injury or who have lost a tooth from advanced dental decay or an unsuccessful root canal.
