Dental Implants

Dental implants are essentially artificial tooth roots. They can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, support a denture or restore an entire mouth.

Why see a Periodontist or Dental Implant Specialist

A periodontist is a dentist who has completed a university post-graduate specialty program in periodontics.

Periodontal disease is a group of conditions affecting the tissues that support the teeth.  This group includes gingivitis, periodontitis and gum recession among many other conditions.
