It’s extremely important that your mouth be healthy enough to support these artificial tooth replacements. An adequate amount of healthy bone is key. Otherwise, we may need to perform a procedure such as a sinus lift or bone graft to ensure that your “tooth” will be stable. If you’re considering dental implants, we take a very individualized approach to your care. No two people are alike! Plus, you can rest assured that we have a general dentist with expertise in periodontics on staff who is available to perform your surgery.
Your initial consultation will include an exam and X-ray, to assess your oral anatomy and determine if you are a candidate for the procedure. In certain situations, we will refer individuals out for a computerized CT scan to plan their implant placement and create a surgical guide.
