Dental Implants

Even though our practice philosophy is that of retaining natural teeth via endodontic therapy, there are instances where extraction of a tooth becomes necessary. In these instances, a dental implant may be the best treatment option for the replacement of the missing tooth.

A dental implant consists of a special surgical metallic post being placed in the spot of the missing tooth. Then after appropriate healing allows for the osteo-integration of the implant with the supporting bone, a crown is attached to the implant, giving the appearance and function of a tooth rising from the gums.
