Dr Minasian is proud to offer dental implants to his patients who are good candidates for the procedure. Dental implants are not for everyone and certain health and oral criteria must be met.
Dental implants are not a one step procedure. Surgical "screws" are surgically placed in the jaw bone where there once was a natural tooth. A healing time of several months is required before completing the procedure with a crown.
Dental implants are considered to be a more permanent choice for replacing missing teeth than a fixed bridge or dentures, however, rejection of the implant is possible and the patient should consider the whole picture and discuss the criteria with Dr Minasian prior to surgery.
