While there are several options for tooth replacement available, dental implants are the ideal option for replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile and oral function. Dr. Kenneth Yost is one of the most highly recognized and trained experts in this area.
During his general practice residency, Dr. Kenneth Yost was introduced to the field of implant dentistry and was in one of the first classes to be trained in the Brånemark technique, completing advanced training in the placement of dental implants.
He has continued to pursue advanced continuing education to stay up to date with the latest innovations in implant dentistry as well as cutting-edge technologies that aid in this treatment.
Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that are surgically inserted into the mouth to replace both the root and crown of the missing tooth. They consist of two main parts — the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post replaces the tooth root, anchoring the tooth to your jawbone and performing the same functions as your original tooth root in stimulating the supporting bone. The implant restoration replaces the crown of the missing tooth. Depending on how many teeth you are replacing, this restoration could be a single crown, a dental bridge or a denture.
Dr. Yost is dedicated to providing the highest quality of implant care possible in order to fully restore your smile and oral health.
