Sep 2, 2016 | Tags Dental Implants Restorative Dentistry

Oral surgeon Theodore J. Grellner discusses the side effects that patients are likely to experience while recovering from dental implant surgery.

When a tooth is lost or extracted, there is no question that it needs to be replaced. Missing teeth jeopardize the health and security of surrounding teeth and lead to deterioration of the jawbone.

Dental implants are the most advanced treatment for missing teeth, and the only one that addresses the loss of the entire tooth. For these reasons and more, Dr. Theodore J.
