A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.
Dr. Steinbach is currently placing titanium dental implants in select sites in select cases. She will be continuing her education in ceramic dental implantology so she can offer an alternative to titanium implants to our patients.
