Dental Implants


Dr. Waidzunas has personally placed AND restored thousands of successful dental implants. If you are missing one or more teeth, you'll want replacements that are as natural as possible. Dr. Waidzunas is well qualified to complete all phases of your surgery and the restoration of your implants so you won't have to consider seeing other doctors for all the different phases of care. Unlike dentures, which can be removed, implants are permanently anchored into the jaw itself.

Generally, Dr. Waidzunas feels you are a good candidate for implants if you have jawbone ridges that are in good shape and healthy oral tissues. When the implant device is inserted into the jaw, a chemical and mechanical bond is formed. The jawbone actually grows into the implant.

With implants, you get a perfect fit, and they will look and feel as good as (or better than!) your original teeth.


Dental Implants - What are They?


A dental implant is a man made replacement for a root of a tooth that is surgically implanted in the jawbone. As the body heals for approximately two to four months after the surgery, the bone around the implant fuses to the implant through a process called osseointegration. After the healing phase is complete, the implants are used to anchor crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants are the most natural replacement for a missing tooth.
