If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants usually offer the best method for permanent replacement. Dental implants replace the roots of teeth and can serve as the base for crowns, bridges, or stabilized dentures. They are placed using a minor surgical procedure that lasts one hour or longer, depending on how many implants you need, followed one to two weeks later by removal of your sutures. In many cases implants require the addition of bone or gum tissue to maximize long-term functional and cosmetic success. We utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging (Cone Beam Technology) to determine a detailed treatment recommendation for you as part of our consultation process.
