Dental implant for your missing tooth.
What is dental implant?
Dental implant is probably the best tooth replacement option for anyone with missing teeth. A titanium anchor is surgically placed into the jaw bone in the area of missing teeth. Implant acts as anchor for a false tooth or a set of false tooth. It will function just like a real tooth. Either patient or anyone should have any hint that an implant is there.
Who is a candidate for dental implant?
Anyone with reasonable health that wants to replace missing teeth is a good candidate for dental implant. You must have enough bone structure in the area of the missing teeth to provide anchor for the dental implant. Today, we use dental implant to replace one missing tooth, bridge, or removable partial denture.
What is the success rate for dental implant?
Pretty high. It range from 85% to 95%.
What can go wrong with dental implant?
Fracture or broken implant, dental implant failed to integrate to the bone, infection of soft tissue and bone around the implant, damage to nerve in the lower jaw, damage to sinus or nasal cavitiy are some of possible complications. These complications are very rare and can usually be corrected.
Most of the patients that had dental implants placed are very satisfied with the treatment outcome and feel it is worth the investment.
We work with qualified, well trained, board certified periodontist and oral surgeon to give you the best surgical outcome.
Our job is to restore dental implant so you can chew and smile like before.
