Inter-disciplined Treatments to Restore a Missing Tooth

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone.  Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth.  Implants are used to replace missing teeth.  They can also be used to support your partials and dentures, preventing them from slipping or shifting in your mouth. 

Healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant are critical factors to receive implants. In addition, meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.

Shown below is our patient with generalized spaces and missing upper right lateral incisor.  Orthodontic treatments were performed by Dr Nguyen at Georgia Orthodontic Care to consolidate spaces and establish an ideal space for missing tooth to be placed.  Implant was inserted and restored by Dr LiaVo at the Vo Dentistry.
