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.
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.
