Implants

 

Dental ImplantsDr. Weiss has more than 20 years experience in both phases of implant dentistry. He has extensive training in surgical implant placement as well as the prosthetic reconstruction of the teeth. This can be a huge benefit to the patient because all phases of the implant placement is done at one location by the same dentist.

 

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into your jaw to hold a replacement crown, bridge or denture in place where teeth have been lost. The benefit of using implants is that they don't rely on neighboring teeth for support, and they are permanent and stable. Dr. Weiss performs the surgery to anchor the "artificial root" into your jaw in his office with local anesthesia and oral conscious sedation. The process from start to finish can be as short as teeth on the same day to as long as 6 months to complete. Technology is trying to decrease implants look and feel like natural teeththe healing time involved, however, each patient heals differently.

 

Dental implants are the perfect solution to tooth loss because they look and feel like natural teeth. Most people today are good candidates for implants whether for replacing a single tooth or all of their teeth.
