A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.
Dental implants are so natural looking and feeling; you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
This procedure is a team effort between you, your dentist and your periodontist. Your periodontist and dentist will consult to determine where and how your implants should be placed. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, your dentist and periodontist will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.
