See What We Can Do for You With Dental Implants
Dental implants are a great option for people that are missing teeth because it helps the health of the teeth on the other side, on each side of where you’re missing a tooth. It also returns the function, your ability to be able to chew correctly. We used to have to use dental bridges, and dental bridges would force us to cut down perfectly good, healthy teeth, and that would jeopardize those teeth in the future.
With dental implants, I leave the teeth alone, I give you a tooth that’s probably gonna be the strongest tooth in your mouth. I was fortunate enough that I was trained with Professor Brånemark in 1988, so it’s been a long time, but he was the person that discovered osseointegration, which is, with dental implants, fused to bone. And I also trained with Ragnar Adell; he was the first prosthodontist to ever actually restore dental implants.
So in 1988 I restored my first implant, so I’ve been doing implants for almost 32 years. And I can tell you, bar none, if you’re missing a tooth, it is the best way to replace a missing tooth.
