At the office of Russell Hatfield, DDS, MS, Ltd, we provide expert care to diagnose and treat all aspects of gum disease. We are also proficient in the placement of dental implants; helping patients with missing teeth rebuild complete and beautiful smiles.
Today, dental implants represent the most advanced system for the replacement of missing teeth. Designed as small surgical posts that behave in much the same way as the roots of your own teeth, dental implants are placed directly into the jawbone. By fusing with the bone over time, they go on to provide unrivaled stability for the placement of a crown, bridge, or removable prosthesis. While conventional fixed bridges and dentures remain effective and satisfying ways to replace missing teeth, dental implants come the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of a natural smile.
With advances in care, dental implants demonstrate a long-term success rate of well over 95%, which is the highest of all implanted medical devices! However, their longevity and stability rely in large part upon precise placement and the presence of sufficient bone support. As a specialty-trained expert in all matters involving the bone and soft tissues supporting the teeth, our periodontist not only places dental implants, but to also perform a range of procedures, such as sinus lifts, bone grafting, and ridge augmentation procedures to ensure optimal aesthetics and the best long-term outcomes of care.
Whether you have lost a tooth due to gum disease, tooth decay, or injury, you can rest assured that your dental implant procedure is in the best of hands at our office. We offer a range of advanced periodontal procedures to effectively address bony and soft tissue defects, and to place dental implants with the utmost exactitude to withstand all manner of oral function.
At the office of Russell Hatfield, DDS, MS, Ltd, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
