Dental implants are titanium fixtures placed in jaw bone where the dental root once supported a tooth.
Effective dental implants were made possible by the work of a Swedish orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Branemark, during the 1980’s. He found a way to make titanium roots integrate with the remaining bone.
Today, dental implants may be used to replace single teeth, support fixed bridgework or anchor removable dentures.
At Prosthodontics Limited, PC, the full range of implant treatment is available.
Implant placement surgery is performed on site, using a titanium fixture. The implant is then restored after it is allowed to integrate with the surrounding bone.
The surgical procedure is performed under local anesthesia , which allows for patient comfort.
Once the implant is fully fused to bone, it is restored with an abutment and a custom crown is fabricated by our in-house laboratory to Dr. Breitman’s exacting standards.
