Dr. Kim LyVan and his dental professionals at Lee Family Dentistry offer services for dental implants in New York and New Jersey.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement that is used in prosthetic denistry to support restorations (crowns) that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. At Lee Family Dentistry, we work with both osseointegrated implants and the fibrointegrated implants. Implants are a foundation for replacement teeth. They are metal posts that are placed into the jawbone and will hold replacement teeth. If the patient’s jaw has lost bone or if the jaw is too short, bone augmentation is a possibility. Bone can be taken from the patient’s own body. Synthetic materials may also be used.
