Implants

Perhaps the most amazing development in dentistry in recent years is implants. You may have heard that a tooth can be "screwed" into bone.  More precisely, an implant ("base") is placed in the bone under the gum tissue, and the bone grows around the implant.  Then, an abutment ("post") is attached to the implant, and a crown covers the abutment.

 

We work with an oral surgeon who places the implant, and we complete the abutment and crown work.
