Simply put, a dental implant is a new tooth, designed just for you from a dental ceramic material which is permanently connected in the space where your original tooth once was.
The buildup of bacteria on your teeth and gums forms a thin, almost invisible layer of film on your teeth and gums called plaque.
The soft tissues that comprise the gums that our teeth are seated in may respond by pulling back away from the tooth. Gum grafting allows us to replace the lost tissue and provide a healthy and natural looking gum line.
As specialists in periodontics and dental implants, our team is primarily interested in two things, the first and the most important of which is saving your teeth. Many people don’t know what a periodontist is, much less, what to expect when they see one. A periodontist is a dentist with advanced education in the treatment of gum or ‘periodontal disease’. Most people lose their teeth due to complications from this affliction. More often than not this loss is unnecessary, and could have been prevented through treatment and education.
Our second interest is replacing teeth that have already been lost. Through the use of dental implants, many people have been given the chance to recapture their once natural and beautiful smiles.
