The implant supported crown is the most natural feeling and functioning option for tooth replacement. It does not rely on any other tooth to stay in the mouth. The implant is placed in the bone in the location of the missing tooth. After bone has integrated around the implant, a post and a crown are placed on the implant. The future of the crown/implant is not dependent on the surrounding teeth. The teeth on each side of the missing space do not need to be altered with a drill for support purposes. The implant/crown is not susceptible to decay and only minimally susceptible to periodontal disease, and it can be flossed like a natural tooth.
Our primary dedication is to the preservation of oral health. We know how to control dental disease and to help you understand destructive bacterial activity. When you understand it, you can control it. We cannot control dental disease with a toothbrush alone, no matter how often we use it. We know, however, that dental disease can be controlled if we control bacterial plaque activity on a daily basis. Indeed, we place great emphasis on prevention.
