Dental Implants

The dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jaw. Most dental implants require a period of approximtely 3 months to osseointegrate with the patient's bone.  After this period, an artificial tooth(crown) or teeth is then affixed to the post.  Implants are used either as an artificial root or as an anchor for a fixed or removable denture.  Dr. Anderson has received specialized training for the surgical placement and restoration of dental implants.

There are many benefits of Implants.They are used as a substitute for bridges or dentures. Implants replace single or multiple teeth without having to use other teeth for support.  Implants help preserve a patient's alveolar bone. Implants don't decay!
