REPLACING TEETH, RESTORING SMILES.
Dental implants are small cylinders made of titanium, which are embedded in the dental bone to replace missing teeth. They can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. When all of the teeth in one jaw are missing, implants are usually used to help retain a complete denture, although implants can be used to replace all of the missing teeth with “permanent teeth.”
Dr. Sams has received implant training from Implant Educators, the International team of Implantology, and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. He places implants in many situations, but will sometimes refer his patients to periodontists and oral surgeons that he trusts when necessary. Implants have over a 98% success rate when properly planned and protocols are followed.
