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.
Dr. Natalie Amoa completed an additional three years of residency in the field of implant surgery after graduating dental school. The surgical procedure is performed under local anesthesia , which allows for patient comfort. 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.
Once the implant is fully fused to bone, it is restored by Dr. Breitman with an abutment and a custom crown fabricated by our in-house laboratory to Dr. Breitman’s exacting standards.
