Are you missing one or more teeth due to injury or infection? Is this affecting your facial structure, your ability to speak or eat, or your self-confidence? Perhaps you are unhappy with your denture, or you've just lost a tooth and are in need of an emergency fix today. These are all scenarios where Dr. Scharf can use dental implants to provide a fully functional, permanent solution. With the most modern technology, he can often place the implants and restore a lifelike tooth in the same visit. With computer guided implants, he can often restore teeth that would have been impossible without extensive work to regenerate a patient's bone.
