Dental Implant Options
We can place implants and cover with temporary teeth the same day. Denture users may choose a mini-implant for denture retention. Bone grafting is available to replace missing jaw bone required for implant placement after years of tooth loss. Gum grafting may be needed to replace shrunken gum tissue negatively affecting smile results in front tooth replacement. Sinus bone grafting may be required to provide the required jaw bone for implant placement in the upper jaw. However, some implants can be placed without the need for incisions or sutures, which reduces any post surgical swelling or tenderness!
