Dr. Jeffrey Stein, Dental Implant Specialist
Dental implants are the most popular tooth replacement option. The procedure involves the surgical placement of an artificial tooth below the gum, such that the implant is attached to the underlying jawbone and gum tissue. This provides a stable support for one or more artificial teeth replacements - or dental crowns - that are nearly as sturdy as your natural teeth.
Candidates for dental implants must have healthy gums and sufficient bone structure to support the implant. To find out whether you are eligible for implants, there are different dental professionals you can consult, including a periodontist, an oral surgeon, or even a general dentist with the necessary training in implants.
"Our goal is to treat you with the best quality care to ensure your dental needs and oral health."
