Implants offer an alternative to full and partial dentures for replacing lost teeth. They’re the only restorative treatment that replaces your lost tooth and its roots, providing a permanent tooth loss remedy. Dr. Cheng Zhu will evaluate your gums, teeth and jaw to determine if you’re a good candidate for this treatment. If so, we’ll discuss your implant options and schedule your surgery.
Implants comprise a titanium post, an abutment and a dental crown, which will serve as your replacement tooth. Via oral surgery, Dr. Zhu will imbed the titanium post into your jaw where, over the next few months, it will fuse with your jawbone and become your new tooth root. Once the post has been integrated into your system, we will attach the abutment and crown to complete your treatment.
