implant treatment

Our periodontal team in conjuction with Dr. Mitchell Gardiner and Dr. Christopher Di Turi may suggest the utilization of dental implants. Implants are used to replace missing teeth and roots. Dental implants are made from titanium (metallic) which is used because of its strength but more importantly because it bonds and allows for bone growth which allows the titanium implants to act as a tooth root substitute. Posts and abutments are attached to the implant allowing for dental prosthetic replacements, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures.
