Tooth implant technology has been a direct outgrowth of medical prosthetic implants, much like hip and knee replacements. This three-decade evolution has brought sophisticated implant design technology and placement techniques to the forefront of dentistry, providing new and exciting options for tooth replacement and denture retention.
Dental implants are accomplished in a two-phase coordinated treatment, which may take 6-12 months for completion. In many situations, implants are the best option for aesthetics and longevity compared to other methods of tooth replacement.
Tooth implantation process:
- Implants are placed by the oral surgeon. Dr. Clement will coordinate your treatment with a local oral surgeon or refer you to the oral surgeon of your choice.
- Final crown is placed on the implant in our office
