Dental Implant Placement
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a bio-compatible metal cylinder that is placed into the jaw bone to function as a prosthetic tooth “root”. The goal is to achieve “osseointegration”, which occurs when the dental implant is integrated into the alveolar bone. Osseointegrated implants provide a foundation for a prosthetic replacement for one or missing teeth to restore function and esthetics to your smile.
As a Periodontist, Dr. Kyle Trammell is specially trained in the osseointegration process and in the health management and regeneration of bone and gum tissue to facilitate dental implant retention.
