Dental Implants are the ultimate in hi-tech replacement of natural teeth. Dental implants are a product of a team made up of an oral surgeon and a restorative dentist. The oral surgeon will place one or more cylindrical titanium implants into the jaw where the tooth or teeth are missing. After a period of 3 to 4 months, the surgeon will place a post on the implant on which the restorative dentist will place a CROWN or BRIDGE, depending on how many teeth are being replaced. Multiple dental implants can also be used to support a FULL DENTURE or PARTIAL DENTURE if many or all teeth are missing and the supporting bone is inadequate to allow proper chewing function.
