We treat our patients like family, working hard to create a welcoming environment where you can receive quality dental solutions that will last for years to come.
Dental implants are among the most powerful restorative options available for your teeth. Unlike traditional crowns, bridges, and dentures, they do not sit on top of the gums or teeth but are directly rooted into the jawbone. Consequently, they stimulate the bone tissue in a similar way to your natural smile and can halt and even reverse jawbone recession. In addition to boosting overall oral health, restored bone can minimize the appearance of sunken cheeks and maintain your facial structure.
Although Dr. Grossmann and his team do not place implants, they can coordinate your treatment with a trusted oral surgeon. During your initial consultation, Dr. Grossmann will ask about your goals for the procedure and medical history before evaluating your smile in a brief oral examination.
If implants are appropriate for your needs, he can then take a series of digital impressions of your mouth to serve as the basis for your restorations. He will also determine whether you require any preparatory procedures to improve your chances of success, like a bone graft, sinus lift, or tooth extraction.
During implant placement surgery, a specialist surgically places a titanium post into the jawbone. Once it has fully integrated with the bone, this implant serves as the support for your restoration. The process of integration typically takes about three to six months, at which point Dr. Grossmann can place your permanent restoration and makes any final adjustments to ensure a comfortable, stable fit.
We provide patients with a wide variety of restorative options and will work with you to determine which is best-suited to your goals, budget, and lifestyle. We offer:
