By far, the most advances in the dental field today involve implants. With success rates in certain situations of almost 100% and with over 25 years of service in most patients, it may be a procedure that needs to be performed only once in a patient’s life. In many situations, a tooth or teeth can be replaced permanently, esthetically and functionally superior to the natural tooth.
Dr. Fox and Dr. Vibert are members of the Academy of Oral Implantology, and have successfully placed and restored implants for over 15 years.
Implants have a titanium root that is placed into the jaw where it fuses with the bone. Replacement of a missing tooth does not require removal of healthy tooth material from other teeth, nor the placement of removable pieces. Dental implants are do-overs, allowing patients to regain that lost tooth permanently and perhaps forever.
