A dental implant is our most advanced technique to permanently replace missing teeth without having to attach to adjoining teeth. The technique involves placing tiny titanium posts into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation on which we place your crown or bridge. In addition, implants restore underlying structures that make the face full and youthful, as well as preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
Our patients tell us that there is moderate to little pain immediately following implant placement. Furthermore, the placement procedure only takes less than an hour to perform. Dental implants are changing the way people live. With implants, you regain the same chewing power as your natural teeth, without having an appliance that has to be removed from your mouth to clean. And, the best part is that a dental implant is not subject to decay or cavities.
If, like many patients, you feel implants is the right choice for you, please call us to set up a consultation appointment with Dr. Fauth so he can answer questions and explain more about the procedure to you.
