Let’s start from the beginning: A dental implant is actually a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. They are used to secure crowns (the parts of teeth seen in the mouth), bridgework or dentures by a variety of means. They are made of titanium, which is lightweight, strong and biocompatible, which means that it is not rejected by the body. Titanium and titanium alloys are the most widely used metals in both dental and other bone implants, such as orthopedic joint replacements. Dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.
Our Office is a one stop shop for implant dental services. This is in sharp contrast to many general dentists who refer their implant surgery patients to an entirely different dental office. It is comforting for the patient to know that Dr Allain performs all surgical implant procedures him self and places all cosmetic dentistry procedures on top of the implants as well. By being both a surgeon and a restorative dentist, many of the problems associated with multiple doctor approach to dental care can be avoided. Patients find it very reassuring to know who exactly is responsible for all aspects of their dental treatment. Additionally, you will have the convenience of having all your work performed at one location, our state of the art dental facility, supported by a highly trained and caring staff.
