Home / Dental Implants
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that the Dentist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.
Dental implants are a good option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. After the implants is placed by an oral surgeon, the implants are revealed and another titanium piece, called an “abutment,” is attached to these posts. A porcelain crown, bridgework, or fixed denture is cemented to this abutment by Dr. Vafai. Only this piece is visible, as the implant looks, feels, and functions as a natural tooth. While the procedure is lengthy, most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life
