Dental Implants

Implants are a new and innovative way to replace one or more missing teeth. Since Dr. Edeen is a general dentist, he partners with specialists for all dental implant cases. Dental implants are small, titanium posts placed into the jaw. The procedure requires a brief oral surgery visit, which is performed by a local specialist. Once the posts are in place, bone tissue naturally integrates with them to form a solid anchor just like a natural tooth's root. After the implant post has healed and firmly integrated with the bone, Dr. Edeen will make individual crowns, a bridge or a denture to attach to your implant posts.

 

Dental implants work well for people who have good oral health and sufficient bone density. Because missing teeth promote bone degeneration, some patients need bone grafting before implant surgery. Dr. Edeen will assess your case and consult with your oral surgeon or periodontist to plan treatment. Together, they will present you with your options and explain the procedure.
