A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed in the jawbone at the location of the missing tooth. By replacing the missing tooth root, the implant provides a stable foundation for the replacement tooth and ensures that the restoration is lasting and lifelike. After the placement of the implant post, our periodontist attaches a restoration such as a dental crown, dental bridge, partial denture, or complete denture on top to fully restore your smile’s health, appearance, and function. With dental implants, you will be able to chew and eat comfortably, speak clearly, and smile confidently.
Our periodontist and team are dedicated to providing you with the best possible care and results each time you visit our office. To accomplish this goal, we constantly update our office with the latest techniques and technology. We are pleased to offer computer-guided implant surgery, which is one of these state-of-the-art treatments. As the name suggests, this treatment utilizes computer software and computed tomography (CT) 3D imaging to aid in the placement of the dental implants. This helps to ensure that we achieve accurate, optimal placement for a tooth replacement that is strong and long lasting.
