A dental implant is an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth for reasons like injury or periodontal disease. Implants require healthy gums and adequate bone.
To begin the implant process, your periodontist will evaluate your missing area to ensure that there is adequate bone and good quality gum tissue to support an implant. If these criteria are not met, augmentation of your bone and/or gum tissue is recommended prior to or during an implant surgery.
During an implant surgery, a metal post is surgically positioned into the jaw. This post will act as a permanent "root" for the replacement tooth. Once it is in place, the surrounding bone and tissue will require time to heal.
Implant placement requires special training, as it is a surgical procedure. Our team is highly trained and specialized in implant planning and placement to meet your dental needs. A patient must also be committed to excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits, as these are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
