Why have Dental Implants become such a popular treatment option?
“How I utilize the placement of dental implants to benefit my patients is determined on an individual diagnosis and treatment basis. For example, I will place a dental implant(s) to replace one or more individual teeth to complete the restoration of a partially complete dental arch. However, the patient totally without teeth, or facing the removal of remaining teeth, may require dental implants to support and stabilize a removable denture. A superior and patient-preferred utilization of implants in a similar case will incorporate several implants to secure an entire arch of teeth as a non-removable functional bridge.
By offering dental implants in my patient treatment plans, my patients benefit from what may be considered the most conservative and long-lasting treatment option available today. In most cases, state of the art i-CAT 3D imaging is also used to provide the most accurate placement of the implants.
With most of my implant patients, I include placing the implant(s)s only as a portion of the overall treatment plan. I will often include implants in my treatment of gum disease, bone augmentation, misalignment of teeth, Root Canal Treatment, crown and bridge prosthetics, denture requirements, and elective cosmetic procedures as necessary.”

Today dental implants are the superior option for patients who are missing permanent teeth. Removable dentures can slip and cause sounds while eating and speaking. Also, fixed bridges often can affect adjacent teeth, and removable dentures may lead to bone loss. Recurring tooth decay, periodontal disease and other factors frequently lead to fixed bridgework failure.
