Dental implants replace teeth that are missing due to extraction or teeth that never grew in. They serve as a permanent tooth replacement that won’t decay or slip, as dentures or bridgework might.
Implants require two phases. First, metal, a screw-like post is placed where the tooth’s roots would be. After healing is complete, Dr. Milushev carefully caps the metal post with an artificial tooth, which is artfully sculpted to match your smile’s geometry and color—this artificial tooth can be either removable or fixed, and it will look and function like your natural teeth.
Dr. Milushev is conservative in his treatment options, only recommending implants or other invasive treatment when necessary. He specializes in restorative dentistry, with a goal of keeping his patients health, comfortable, and confident in their smiles. Dental implants can be life-changing for patients with decay or trauma to their teeth.
How the implant surgery is performed depends on the type of implant and your individual jawbone, and the process can take up to a few months. If you believe implants are the right choice for your unique smile, make an appointment with Dr. Milushev to review your options.
