Dental implants are a long-lasting, safe alternative for the replacement of missing teeth. Implant restorations can be a single tooth replacement or multiple teeth and have become the premier choice over a removable flipper, partial denture, or bridge.
Dental implants are an amazing solution simulating a natural tooth in form and function, actually replacing the root of the missing tooth. The dental implant is secured in the bone and functions as the root of your tooth, bonding naturally with the jawbone and preventing deterioration of the surrounding bone and preserving facial structure. A dental implant provides permanent tooth replacement that allows a patient to maintain the feel of a natural tooth.
As a general dentist, Dr DeWerd oversees the entire implant process. He will work with an oral surgeon and manage your case from start to finish. During the first phase of treatment an oral surgeon will surgically place the implant,. After the implant has had time to integrate with the bone, you will return to our office for the second phase of treatment. Dr DeWerd will create a custom abutment and porcelain crown which will be attached to the implant.
There are a variety of factors that determine if a patient is a candidate for implant restorations.
Dr DeWerd provides a comprehensive implant evaluation to determine if a dental implant is right for you. Contact us today and transform the way you feel about your smile!
