What is involved in receiving an implant?
An initial consult with an oral surgeon of your choice is the first step. We will be glad to refer
you to a qualified doctor in your area if necessary. The initial phase of treatment begins with
the oral surgeon. Your implant will be surgically placed and our practice will fit and place the
crown restoration for you. An implant generally takes several months to finish but is in most
instances the healthiest, most reliable and longest lasting restoration option.

Gum disease can be broken down into several different levels of severity.
The initial phase is Gingivitis. Signs of gingivitis include:
The next phase is Early Periodontitis:
Moderate Periodontitis follows:

The best prevention for gum disease is to brush and floss twice daily. Flossing is the only way
to reach between the teeth where gingivitis starts. Mouth rinses also help but flossing is your
best defense for removing plague at the gum line.
