Missing a tooth or even multiple teeth? No problem! An implant is a titanium fixture which is placed in the bone of the jaw by an oral surgeon. After the implant heals, a crown, denture or partial can be fitted to the implant, replacing missing teeth. They can also be used to retain a denture or partial.
Implants can replace missing teeth without requiring adjacent teeth to be prepared. They can also replace missing teeth in the back of the mouth that a bridge cannot replace. One very effective use of implants is to retain a lower denture. Just two implants placed near the front of the mouth can make a lower denture fit almost as well as an upper denture.
Our high quality implant service includes cad/cam milled custom abutments for fixed cases and the popular locator system for removable cases.
