Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth and help to restore chewing function and the beauty of natural teeth.
Do you have teeth that are extremely sensitive, with root showing or gums receding? There are new solutions to this old problem.
Many patients have their teeth removed before they decide they want a dental implant. When this happens, the jawbone reduces in size (called atrophy) in the area of the future dental implant.
When patients lose their upper back teeth, there will be a greater chance for them to have less bone in their upper jaw due to the anatomy of the skull, and a natural process that occurs after the tooth is removed, called pneumatization.
We know that many people are anxious about dental work, but rest assured that we have all the options available when it comes to sedation.
