In the last 20 years dental implants has changed the way dentistry is practiced more than any other dental innovation. While the treatment has been around for much longer only now has it not only become widely accepted but also the standard of care to replace a single missing tooth. While our focus remains on maintaining a healthy natural smile, for those cases where a tooth must be extracted a single dental implant may be the best long term solution.
Due to improvement in implant training and products available, we have been able to partner with OCO Biomedical in providing a simple, cost effective tooth replacement option that is more cost effective and conservative than a bridge. Treatment may be planned in easy to manage stages, providing maximum comfort, healing, and restored function both quickly and affordably. We will be glad to put you in contact with a previous patient who can share their implant experience at our office.
Before an implant can be placed the location needs to have sufficient bone to support it. Bone graft are usually required after an extraction to preserve both the height and width of the ridge. Bone graft materials have gone through rapid evolution in just the last 5 years and can safely and effectively replace missing bone, stimulate bone formation, and increase bone volume.
