Dental implants are one of the most long-term methods of tooth replacement and although it may sound excruciating, it’s actually quite simple when you have the right Implant Dentistry team.
Replacing a tooth consists of several parts just as a natural tooth does. To replace the root of the tooth, a small screw-like titanium dental implant is placed beneath the gum line. If your 3D x-ray determines that the jaw bone levels are lower than normal, a bone graft procedure will be performed. In order to create a level of comfort for the patient during the “Big Day”, different types of sedation options are available and can be included in the treatment plan during your initial consultation with your dentist.
