Diagnosis and treatment planning

When a tooth is lost – either to decay, fracture or bone loss — the options used to be doing a three-unit bridge, leaving the space empty or dentures. Using this new technology, we are able to offer our patients something that looks and feels like your natural teeth.

Installation procedure

By using biocompatible titanium fixtures that are placed into the bone to support a new crown (or bridge) we are able replace the “root support” for natural looking permanent teeth. The advantages of dental implants are that they help maintain and preserve the bone height, prevent adjacent teeth from tipping and don’t involve turning a single tooth problem into a three-tooth problem by grinding down the adjacent teeth to place a bridge.

Depending on the condition of the patient’s mouth, their overall health (medical condition), their age, condition of the adjacent teeth and the health of the bone, an alternative treatment may be recommended. The best way to determine which option is best for you is to come in for a consultation with our highly trained doctors to discuss your individual condition and customized treatment plan.
