Implants - A Wonderful Option for Many Patients
Implants and the restoration that follows are amazing feats of engineering that replace teeth where there are no roots. Implants can help patients stabilize or do away with dentures or avoid having to remove tooth structure on healthy teeth for bridgework.
The implant is a substitute for a tooth root called a "fixture". Special components are precision-machined to fit into this fixture to support bridgework. When an oral surgeon performs implant surgery, fixture(s) are inserted into the bone where there are no roots. After a period of time the fixtures are uncovered in order to support a crown, bridgework, or dentures.
At this point we will take over and craft a life-like restoration according to the each patients' needs. This procedure provides stability along with a secure and confident smile.
