Treatments tailored to you
A healthy Smile plays an important role in the way you look & feel, yet many thousands of people are affected by changes in health and appearance due to missing teeth.  New innovations in Dental Implant technology  make them an optimal treatment for tooth replacement because they look, feel and function very closely to your natural teeth.
Some other advantages to Dental Implants:
Healthy teeth do not need to be ground down?Anchoring the implants in the jawbone stimulates gum and bone tissue?No adhesives required?Secure and permanent vs loose fitting dentures

Each Dental Implant solution is tailored to your needs.

There are several factors taken into consideration such as:
•    Your general state of health
•    The quality & quantity of your bone tissue
•    General condition of your gum tissue

The Treatment Procedure:
We start with a thorough examination which includes a jaw x-ray to determine proper placement. An impression is then made which forms an important platform for treatment.
Inserting the Dental Implant:
2 main options are available for Implant placement:
In a single surgery procedure temporary abutments are attached once the implants have been placed.  In a 2 stage procedure the implants are inserted and left to heal once covered with gum tissue.  In many cases the the crown can be attached on the same day the implant is placed.
The permanent adjustment is placed once the implant has fully integrated with the bone tissue in a single stage procedure.  A second surgery is required for a 2 stage procedure.  The implant is revealed and the final abutment is placed.
Fitting and re-examination:
Once the prosthesis or crown is ready is ready to be attached to the implant.  The overall functionality and esthetics will be checked on follow up vistas.
