Single Implant Crowns
Implants are a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth and are a more desirable option for patients than removable partial dentures or a fixed bridge.
Often times the oral surgeon will place the dental implant at the same time as the removal of a failing natural tooth. The dental implant does not require treatment to the adjacent teeth and in fact can help preserve them. The dental implant and implant crown are maintained similar to a natural tooth, and can look, feel and function just like a natural tooth.
Once the implant is placed, and the bone around the implant has healed, Dr. Chang will be read to restore the dental implant with a custom implant abutment (the “connector”) and implant crown.
