Commonly referred to as “ideal treatment” for replacing missing teeth, dental implants are a very effective fixture that will last a lifetime. They are increasingly used to replace other types of dental treatment as well, such as bridges and removable partial dentures. The dental implant is usually made of titanium, which is placed in one’s jaw bone. The implant can be free standing, or used an anchor for one of more false teeth. It is essential that there is an adequate amount of bone present for the implant to biologically fix within the jaw. If there is insufficient bone for this treatment, a bone graft may be necessary. To ensure that you are a candidate for this quality and top-of-the-line procedure, a CAT scan and consultation is needed. Call or email us today for more information!
