Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. They are a non removable restoration that replaces missing teeth and usually does not involve adjacent teeth. Implants can also be used to support and add stability to dentures. Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed in the bone by a dentist, usually an oral surgeon or periodontist. We coordinate with the surgeon or periodontist where the implants will be placed and after the placement you will return to our office to attach the tooth or denture to the implant.
