What are dental implants?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into the jaw by your periodontist used for a single tooth replacement, an anchor for a fixed or removable prosthesis to replace multiple teeth, or as an anchor for a full bridge or denture to replace all teeth instead of a simple removable denture.

Who should I see for implant treatment?

Periodontists specialize in both gum and bone surgery of the mouth. They have the specialized training, knowledge and state of the art equipment to deliver high quality implant care that is pleasing to the eye. In addition, a skilled periodontist can help patients rebuild lost tissue to create the strong foundation needed for a dental implant. The office of Corey + Then is dedicated to serving its patients with implants that are long lasting and aesthetically pleasing. They will coordinate their work closely with the patient’s dentist.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

A dental implant is the most natural looking product next to your actual teeth. They allow you to eat the foods you prefer without worrisome wobbles, clicks, glues or adhesives which come with dentures. Dental Implants provide the most advanced tooth replacement available today and can preserve the look of your jawbone as you age. Dental implants look and feel like real teeth and help prevent bone and gum tissue loss that can often happen with a regular bridge. Implants don’t require grinding down good teeth and never develop decay or require root canals. Dental implants are as strong as your own teeth and most implants last longer than 15 years, no matter how old you are.
