A Dental Implant is a replacement for a tooth. It is inserted into the bone and left to osseo-integrate with the patient's bone. Ideal candidates for an implant will have good general dental and overall health as well as healthy gum tissue and bone to support the implant.
Today's technology allows a Dental Implant Specialist to effectively replace a single tooth or even a whole mouth full of teeth! A single crown may be attached to an implant or an Implant Bridge or Denture can be attached to multiple teeth.
Dental Implants can be placed while patients are under IV Sedation or General Anesthesia, as well.
