Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth and roots and can provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth. Dr. Sherman will work closely with an implant expert to create a personalized treatment plan that will restore both functionality and appearance. Dental implants last much longer, are permanent and easier to care for than traditional dentures and other types of dental prosthetics.
Implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where the teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, acting as a tooth root substitute. Once the implant sites have healed, posts are then attached to the implant allowing for dental prosthetic attachments to be placed.
Once the implant posts have been attached, our office will create and place custom made restorations such as crowns, bridges and dentures on the already placed dental implants to complete your new smile.
