Is an implant a good option for me?

021_Image_0002In order for an implant to actually fit in a gap between two teeth and into the bone at that site, there is a required width and length for the implant.

It is critical that these vital structures are avoided in placing your implant so you can avoid complications and ensure theĀ  success of the implant integrating into the bone.
