With advances in the field of dental care there are still many Americans who have problems with their teeth and these can be due to:
- Gum diseases
- Gingivitis (type of gum disease)
- Decay of teeth
- Injury to face or jaw

These dentists have gone through this extra training anddedicate their professional life to patients who need teeth replacement. They help the dental patients with:
- Attainment of normal functions;
- Help with the start of digestion process;
- Improvement in appearance.
These dentists with this specialty help many millions of Americans to have their lives changed with this form of dentistry. These implants are the replacement of tooth roots forming a ground for removable or permanent replacement teeth that are specially made to match natural teeth.
Many of these dentists perform surgical implant procedures and place dentistry cosmetic techniques on top of the implants. An implant dentist is both a surgeon and a restorative dentist and this multiple method of dental care avoids the problems that can occur when using multiple dentists for multiple dental care procedures.
Implant patients find it reassuring to know exactly who has the reasonability for all aspects of these dental procedures. This gives the patient the ease of having all work performed at one location in a dental facility and is supported by well trained and extremely caring staff.
