One of the greatest advances in dentistry in the last fifty years are implants. Implants allow us to replace a missing tooth without involving the adjacent teeth – it’s almost like have your own tooth back!
What is a dental implant?
An implant is a titanium cylinder – the same metal as that used in artificial knees and hips. It is placed where the tooth is missing. After allowing the bone time to heal around it, we can attach a crown to the implant and you can use it just like you used the missing tooth.
With over 30 years of experience with replacing missing teeth with dental implants, Dr. Kuttler has seen the evolution and success of this procedure. By working closely with a team of specialists to place the implant exactly where the new crown will fit and work the best, the results provide a tooth that looks great while providing strength and comfort.
If you have a specific situation you are concerned about, Dr. Kuttler will be happy to sit down with you to review your questions and concerns and suggest possible options worth further investigation. Give us a call at 563-583-6424 to start the conversation.
