This procedure is a team effort between you, your general dentist, and your periodontist. We will consult with your general dentist to determine where and how your implant will be placed. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, we will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.
Replacing a Single Tooth. If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.
Replacing Several Teeth. If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.
Replacing All of Your Teeth. If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.
As you know, your own teeth require conscientious at-home oral care and regular dental visits. Dental implants are like your own teeth and will require the same care. In order to keep your implants clean and plaque-free, brushing and flossing still apply!
After treatment, we will work closely with you and your general dentist to develop the best care plan for you. Periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implant, teeth, and gums to make sure they are healthy.
