Dental implants often offer the best treatment for replacing missing teeth. They are surgically placed in the jaw bone, and with proper oral hygiene, they can last a lifetime. Dental implants however need enough jaw bone in order for them to be placed. When a patient has experienced a certain amount of jawbone loss, bone grafting, a procedure meant to grow enough new bone to support an implant, will be performed.
Our skilled surgeon can surgically insert dental implants into your jawbone. Over time, the implants will bond with the existing bone, providing a firm foundation for your replacement teeth. Once your new teeth have been securely attached to your implants, you can bite into a juicy apple or smile for the camera without any inconvenience or embarrassment.
