Bridges and dentures were considered traditional methods to replace teeth. Now, dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth and can help you achieve that perfect smile.
A titanium surgical grade root like device is placed into the jawbone under the gum line. This is followed by a crown or bridge being connected to the implant(s) to restore the patients missing teeth. Many times, the implant surgery can be done the same day as the extraction of a severely damaged tooth or teeth. This is what we call immediate implant placement surgery.
Implants can also be used to improve the stability of a complete mandibular or maxillary denture.
