Dental Implant Surgical Placement
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 an ideal 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. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
In 2007, Dr. Halpin went from placing crowns on implanted teeth, to also surgically placing implants. This has reduced our patients’ wait for an implant as they no longer have to be referred to an oral surgeon for the procedure.
