What is implant dentistry? Implant dentistry is a fixed and immovable tooth replacement option. A patient can floss around an implant. The implant is a titanium post that resembles the root of a tooth and fits into the bone. The implant crown fits on top of the implant allowing the implant and implant crown to function similarly to a biological tooth. Any brand or size of implant can be placed if adequate bone is located at the implant site. Dr Brannock places and restores implant systems such as Nobel, Strauman, Camlog, Biohorizon, Zimmer, and many others.
Implants can be placed for a single tooth or to replace multiple missing teeth. We recently restored 9 implants with a hybrid overdenture on a patient and it has changed that patient’s life forever. She can now smile and eat! See before and after photos to see how amazing this can be!
