For patients who missing a single tooth or several teeth, Dr. Wilderman offers dental implants as a solution. With dental implants, patients can be free from uncomfortable dentures and removable bridges.
DR. WILDERMAN: A dental implant can be for a person who is missing a single tooth to someone who is tired of putting their teeth in a glass at the end of the night. We can use it to replace one tooth or a whole mouth of teeth. An implant is a titanium cylinder that's placed in the area where the tooth used to be. It's essentially an artificial tooth root that I can attach a tooth or teeth to. We have a great relationship with some of the area's best implant surgeons. They have some of the latest technology to help guide and place the implants. That makes my job much easier. My patients come back and give me tremendous feedback about all the specialists that we refer people to. You really need that confidence when it comes to an implant surgeon to know that we've chosen the best surgeon possible for you. Implants are probably the closest thing we have to having your own natural teeth back. There really isn't anything that I can make that's as good as what you were born with, but dental implants are a close second.
