Are Implants Safe?
As a safe and effective teeth restoration procedure, dental implants have now been used for over a half century. At The Center for Complete Health @ Wilton, Dr. Kostrzewski has been using them in his patients for many years. Dental implants are typically made of medical grade titanium, a biocompatible material that is accepted by the body and serves as a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth.
As with any medical procedure, there can be complications. Choosing an experienced, well- trained implant dentist like ours will help minimize complications and ensure skillful handling of any problems, should they arise. It is important that you and Dr. Kostrzewski or Dr. Spennato discuss your health history and any habits which could affect the success of your recommended care so that you are fully informed about the benefits and risks involved.
