What are Dental Implants – Dr Michael B. Kushner DDS (Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon)


good morning my name is dr. Michael
Kushner an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and I’m here today to speak to
you about the concept of an implant patients always ask doctor what is an
implant and I simply tell them an implant is nothing more than the
replacement of your missing root when you have a tooth removed we have the
ability now to replace that root which eventually can have a crown put on it to
return you to your both your aesthetics and your function in this picture here
you can see that there’s an implant the bone that holds the implant and a crown
in order to provide these services for you you must have the proper sight to
place this implant sometimes it’s required we do a procedure called
grafting and if you like you can look at one of our other videos and we discuss
what the concept of grafting is
