Many of Dr. Ostler’s patients choose dental implants to replace a single tooth or several teeth. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw. Titanium is a strong lightweight material that integrates with the human jawbone to provide a solid anchor for a crown that will look and function like a tooth. Dr. Ostler works with excellent local oral surgeons and periodontists who surgically place the titanium implant. After the appropriate amount of healing time for the implant, Dr. Ostler will scan your implant with heriTero© scanner to create a CAD/CAM implant abutment and crown that will fit, look, and function perfectly.
