If you’re missing one or more teeth, Edward Staffel, D.D.S., of San Antonio can use dental implants to help restore your flawless smile. A dental implant consists of a small piece of metal which is surgically implanted in the jawbone, essentially forming a replacement for the root of a tooth. As the tissue heals over the next two to six months, the bone around the implant fuses to the implant, creating a perfectly stable structure.
After the patient has healed, Dr. Staffel uses the implant to anchor crowns, bridges, or dentures - recreating your perfect smile.
For more information about dental implants as a natural replacement for missing teeth, call Edward R.Staffel, D.D.S, P.A. & Sara E. McLin, D.D.S. today at (210) 341-2569.
