DENTAL IMPLANTS-WHAT ARE THEY?
Dental implants are titanium screws that are placed in the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. They can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, and they can dramatically increase the retention and stability of dentures. Titanium metal is the most biologically compatible material which allows your bone to fuse to the implant.

IMPLANT TREATMENT PROCESS
After your Implant Evaluation with Dr. Scholes our team will communicate with your restorative dentist. Together they will collaborate on the best treatment options for you. All implant surgeries are done in the comfort of our dental office under local anesthetic. Once your implant or implants are surgically placed in the jawbone they will be allowed to heal for several months, during which time we will monitor your healing. Upon healing of your dental implants you will be referred back to your restorative dentist to complete your new teeth.
DENTAL IMPLANT OPTIONS AVAILABLE AT SCHOLES PERIO
A single dental implant can be used to replace one missing tooth. An implant bridge can replace two or more missing teeth and may require fewer implants to stabilize an area. Dental implants can also be used to replace an entire arch of teeth or to stabilize a partial or denture. We utilize the newest technology to determine how many implants will be needed and to assist in locating the most ideal areas to place them in. At your implant evaluation, Dr. Scholes will be able to examine your mouth and explain in detail what options are available to you.
For over 24 years, Dr. Scholes has been placing and maintaining dental implants. He has received extensive training in dental implant procedures and regularly attends continuing education courses to stay up to date on the latest technology. He recently completed a clinical residency program on the world’s newest implant surgical techniques at the Malo Clinic in Lisbon, Portugal.
