Elliott-Dental-Implant-AnatomyDental Implants replace your natural tooth and root when lost to extraction.

Implants look great, and are a very conservative option.

Implants can also help to create a very strong connection to dentures.

Over the last 25 years titanium implants have made huge strides in medicine and dentistry. Today, dental implants are usually the preferred method to replace missing teeth due to their proven track record, excellent success rates, and flexibility in treatment options.

We will be able to evaluate your situation, and tell you if you are a candidate for dental implants. We have experience with a number of different dental systems and together we can help you determine which system is best for you. We usually work in conjunction with an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist when placing implants, and then we restore your tooth in our offices.

A dental implant is a titanium based cylinder that takes the place of the missing tooth and root. After a period of time, this titanium cylinder fuses with the bone in what is known as osseointegration. Once osseointegration occurs, the implant is ready to be crowned in the traditional manner.

Implants can also be used to support full or partial dentures. Implants dramatically improve the denture retention and stability.

Most patients with sufficient bone can have implants, although individual decisions and factors must be considered. Usually an x-ray and a CT-scan is done to determine if you have enough bone to place the implant and also to determine the size and kind of implant to be placed.
