Implant Dentistry Related Procedures
Dental Implants replace missing or badly broken teeth that can long longer be restored. Dental implants are essentially metal anchors that substitute for the root(s) of your teeth, and they are secured to your jawbone via a routine procedure with minimal disturbances to most patients. After proper healing, a new crown is secured to the implant, which often is even more esthetic than the old, real tooth. Whether you are replacing one tooth or securing an entire denture, dental implants have revolutionized modern dentistry by providing a long-term, cost effective, predictable, and esthetic outcome for missing teeth. Dr. Temlock places hundreds of dental implants every year, and he is confident that nearly all patients can benefit from dental implants when treatment planned conservatively and correctly.
