Single Tooth Dental Implants
If you have a single missing tooth, we can give you an implant and a crown to replace it. The dental implant will replace both the missing natural tooth and the root of the tooth. We perform multiple teeth replacement using a combination of dental implants and bridges as well.
Implant-supported dental bridges
The implant-supported bridge is similar to the standard dental bridge except that it is supported by implants and not by natural teeth. Compared to conventional bridges, implant-supported bridges deliver a range of advantages. Since they do not rely on the surrounding teeth for support, these do not require any alteration of your natural teeth structure. The adjacent teeth will remain intact and healthy and will not be exposed to the strain to support the bridge, which can weaken natural teeth eventually.

What is a dental bridge?
With the help of CT scans and X-rays, Dr. Adatrow will know if you have adequate jawbone support. He can pinpoint where to place the dental implant. Once these things have been finalized, you and the doctor can now decide on the date of the procedure.
Can I get crowns on the same day of implant placement?
Visiting your dentist should not stop after the surgery is done. Schedule periodical checks with Dr. Adatrow to see if any infections are hampering the healing process. He will check if the implant has fused with the surrounding bone to assess the success of the surgery.
