Dental implants offer one of the best options for restoring missing teeth, whether it be one, several, or all missing teeth. Unlike bridges, implants have the advantage of being able to stand alone and not affect adjacent teeth because they are "implanted" into the bone. Additionally, they offer an excellent solution for those who are tired of loose, ill-fitting dentures or partials, because they "click" into the implant and have the option of being fixed (permanent) or removable, depending on your needs. Each patient has a unique case and will need to be thoroughly examined to see if implants are a beneficial option, since there are many different factors that determine if an individual is a good candidate.
Because placing implants is a surgical procedure, we work closely with a prosthodontist (specialist) who comes to our office to place them. After a healing period, we will restore them with a final, permanent restoration. During your dental examination, we can thoroughly discuss and answer any questions you may have to find out if implants are a great option for you.
