Sometimes a tooth cannot be saved because of a fracture or nonrestorable tooth. In cases such as this where the tooth needs extracted, Dr. Vargo may recommend a dental implant. Depending on your situation, your general dentist may want to place your implant or refer you to someone else for implant placement. Dr. Vargo may be able to place your implant for you. We have worked with several dentists in the area and have an excellent success rate in implant dentistry. Dr. Vargo places the implant and your general dentist restores the implant with an abutment and crown.
