With the loss of a tooth or multiple teeth, dental rehabilitation with replacement of teeth can be accomplished by several different methods. Dental implants are a long-term option to replace a single tooth or to create a platform for restoration of all teeth. Many of the traditional methods for replacing missing teeth involve shaving down of healthy teeth or rely on the gum tissue for stability.

Dental implants have revolutionized the ability of dental professionals to predictably replace teeth with stability and longevity. Oral & maxillofacial surgeons at BMC have tremendous experience in placement of dental implants, working with patients and their dentists to plan for the placement of the implants, and coordinate care so that a prosthesis can be fabricated to replace one or more needed teeth.
