Dental implants are a popular treatment option for patients who are missing one or more permanent teeth. With an overall success rate of about 95% and almost 50 years of clinical research to back them up, dental implants are frequently the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth. Rather than resting on the gum line like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like fixed bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements that are placed in the jawbone. Implants can be effectively used to replace single missing teeth, as abutments for bridges, or as anchors for removable appliances. At our office, we specialize as your restorative dentist, and collaborate with periodontists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons, to create a treatment plan that ensures successful implant placement as well as a successful restorative outcome.
