Implant supported crowns, bridges, or full reconstructions that look and feel natural don’t just happen by chance. Careful planning and precision execution insure a successful, long term result. Prosthodontists, like Dr. Mark Stankewitz, are trained in planning and restoring dental implants utilizing the specialized surgical skills of OMFS (oral and maxillofacial surgeons) and periodontists. A team approach to implant dentistry provides a patient with Board Certified experts in their respective fields who work in synergy to create beautiful implant dentistry with life-like esthetics and function. Implant placement is an irreversible treatment which demands a high level of surgical skill. The consequences of improper placement are manifest in the esthetic result and so without guidance from the Prosthodontist, surgical errors can occur.
