The good news is that dental implants can provide an effective, long-lasting solution for missing teeth. The ideal candidate for dental implants would have a healthy amount of jaw bone structure. Dr. Kami Marr and Dr. Kevin Marr will perform a full dental examination to determine if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants.
If a patient does not have enough healthy bone grafting may be necessary. Dr. Marr will coordinate with an oral surgeon for your implant procedure.
Dental implants are surgically implanted into the jaw bone and take 2-3 months to fully heal. After the dental implant has fused into the jaw bone, your final restoration is carefully attached to the dental implant.
Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth. To care for dental implants, patients should maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine and schedule regular visits to our Greeley dental office.
