Dental implants can be used to replace missing teeth anywhere in the mouth. New techniques and bio-technology allow almost anyone to be a candidate for dental implants. Basically, a dental implant is a post or anchor that replaces either a single tooth or several teeth and once placed, actually gets more secure with time as bone grows into the anchor. One of the advantages of a dental implant over a bridge is that the adjacent teeth do not have to be reduced down, leaving them intact.
Today, 'State of the Art' implant systems are now available that promote the maintenance of bone over time and we make this technology available to you.
An example of implant bone maintenance:
Some people have more complex dental implant needs, when many teeth are missing and their bone is not adequate for implant placement. These needs can be addressed through advanced implant and bone growing techniques.
