Dental implants can fit the space created by the loss of one or several teeth or can serve as an anchor point for a crown, bridge or denture. By placing a titanium post into the bones below the gum line. After healing takes place, from the initial implant placement, an artificial tooth is custom made and fitted to the post portion of the titanium anchor. The artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant post, providing stability and comfort to the patient.
Dr. Salvador will design, implant and fit the replacement teeth all in one office. At the first appointment, Dr. Salvador uses an x-ray to determine if the jaw bone is adequate to hold titanium posts. Models of the mouth are used to show where gaps are located and provide measurements for a replacement tooth or bridge. Dr. Salvador meticulously plans your dental implant treatment for the best results.
