At the Advanced Oral Specialty Group, we believe in the quality of our work and the degree to which dental implants can improve our patients’ lives. Significant progress has been made in recent decades in the number of people who will never again have to worry about temporary bridges or dentures. This progress, however, means that many people have been living with their dental implants for quite some time; over this amount of time, many people with implants have encountered complications with their new teeth.
Whether these complications were caused by inexperienced dentists improperly treating the implants or simply by the standard biological wear-and-tear normal to which even normal teeth are exposed, anyone with implant complications will need to take action to ensure good oral health and a long life for the implant. Dr. Meltzer and the experienced staff at the Advanced Oral Specialty Group can utilize our expertise to take care of any complications that may have arisen in your implants since you had them placed.
