If you’ve suffered the loss of a tooth, implants are a safe, strong solution. Dr. Kaufman specializes in implantology, the science of replacing teeth lost to decay, gingivitis, or injury. A titanium base replaces the original tooth’s root system, easily forming an intimate bond with the bone socket of the missing tooth. With the base installed, a fixed (permanent) or temporary artificial tooth can be attached without much discomfort or difficulty.
With proper care and dental maintenance, implants have a 98% success rate for replacing natural teeth.
