When you lose a tooth, a dental implant may be needed to replace the tooth root and crown. Dental implants are simply “anchors” that permanently support replacement teeth. They are secure and durable and can be cleaned and cared for much like your natural teeth. Dr. Brian M. Lane performs the abutement and crown procedures, but the actual implant is referred to a oral surgeon. If you are considering dental implants, please call 520-417-1692 to speak with our team and see if it’s the right option for you.
