Tooth replacement procedures are not only limited to bridges and dentures. Dental implants are a great alternative for replacing missing teeth. The practice of implant dentistry involves mastery in planning, surgery and tooth restoration and should be performed by an expert in restorative dentistry. New Albany dentist Dr. Receveur is known for his expertise in this specialized field.
Proper assessment is necessary so that Dr. Receveur can create the best treatment plan for you. During the consultation, he will carefully examine your teeth and assess if you’re the right candidate for dental implant. This includes taking diagnostic exams, asking about your medical history and mapping out the right treatment plan that’s best suitable for you.
Planning with the help of advanced computer imaging is essential so that the implant will be placed in the right position. This involves a detailed assessment of your mouth, jaw and teeth using specialized radiographs (x-rays) and computerized tomographs (CT scans).
