Dental implants are for patients who have had one or more of their teeth removed. Implants, unlike dentures, are permanent and are attached to the jawbone. The implant takes the place of the “root” and is used to attach a Crown or cap, that looks and feels just like a natural “tooth”.
Before the Dentist can attach an implant, there has to be sufficient bone and that bone must be strong enough to hold the implant in place. For the implant procedure to succeed, and if there is not enough bone, Dr. Markowitz will recommend a bone graft. The success of an implant also requires that nearby tissue and gums are in good health as they too can affect the success of the implant.
This is why it is critical that before any implant placement, you schedule a consultation with Dr. Markowitz. He can then adequately inspect your teeth, gums, and bone using the latest technologies and then recommend a course of action so that your dental implant not only looks good but is correctly installed and stands up over time.
