Dental Implants

About Dental Implants     Implants are used to replace missing teeth. Bone quality (depth and width) are important for successful placement of an implant. Dr. Niemoeller uses many talented surgeons for this procedure. All restorative work (design and placement of teeth) done on the implants is accomplished by Dr. Niemoeller. Dr. Niemeoller uses implants in a variety of applications. He uses them to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, secure a denture, or help anchor a crown-sleeve coping case.
      In most cases, a crown is cemented on a custom abutment. The custom abutments are the gold anchors tightened into the implant. Once the implant has integrated into the bone, impressions are taken for the fabrication of an abutment and crown. This usually takes 3-4 weeks. The integration of the implant into the bone typically takes 2-3 months.
These are actual patients of Dr. Niemoeller.
