Dental Implants in Newport News, Virginia

Implants can replace one tooth, many teeth, or entire sets of dentition. A dental implant is basically a titanium screw that is placed into a patients jaw to provide a solid foundation for a the accompanying restoration.
 
Treatment times for implants is typically longer than traditional treatment times. After the implant is place it requires a typical healing peroid of 3 to 6 months. After the implant or implants have healed, various attachments can then be placed on the implant to support the final restoration. There are numerous implant systems that are used in dentistry today, and all of them require system specific parts. On top of that, many patients that have had implants placed may have had implants that are no longer manufactured. As a prosthodontist, I am familiar with all implant systems, past and present.
