Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges, or a denture.
Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and many people find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by our Periodontal Surgeon will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. At that time, you may also want to ask about the option of Sleep Dentistry (sleep sedation) performed under the administration and supervision of our board certified MD anesthesiologist in the comfort and safety of our state-of-the-art surgical suite.
When it's time to place a crown over your implant, our master ceramic artist will craft your crown in our own on-site dental laboratory. At the Spodak Dental Group, we bring the best, comprehensive dental care to you in our singular, all-inclusive facility.
