Dental implants are advanced prosthetic dentistry appliances that utilize small, root-like posts to support a dental crown, bridge, or denture, depending on how many teeth you’ve lost. For patients with dentures, which can often grow loose over time, dental implants are especially beneficial in stopping denture slippage. Implant posts are made from biocompatible titanium, meaning your jawbone will fuse to them as it heals. Because dental implant restorations can be custom-crafted to meet your specific needs, implants can be placed in your upper, lower, or both dental ridges.
For optimal results, we work closely with a trustred oral surgeon to design dental implant treatment. Your surgeon will carefully and expertly place your root-like implant posts, then we can secure your custom-made restoration to your implant posts after your jawbone has healed. Unlike other restorations, implants can help preserve the strength of your jawbone following tooth loss. As a dental implant patient himself, Dr. Roos is dedicated to helping all tooth loss patients enjoy the same life-changing benefits of dental implants that he enjoys!
