All phases of your implant procedure can be completed by Michelle L. Lehman D.D.S. Dental implants many times are the treatment of choice to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental exams with x-rays are reviewed to determine if dental implants are appropriate and if adequate bone exists to support the implant. Titanium implants are placed and allowed to integrate with the bone before a permanent crown, bridge or denture is placed on it. Proper planning takes a few months in most cases.
