There has never been anything in dentistry quite like dental implants for replacing missing teeth. Before dental implants, dentures and dental bridges were the only restorations for replacing missing teeth. Today’s dental implants mimic the look, feel and function of real teeth. They typically consist of three parts.
The first part is the root replacement, which is often made of titanium, placed into the jawbone where it provides the foundation for an artificial tooth or a permanent denture. For a successful implant, you need proper bone density and a healthy immune system. The second part of the implant is called an abutment or metal post, which is where your dentist attaches the third part of the implant, the dental crown restoration.
The first part, the artificial root, must be surgically implanted in your jaw. After the surgery heals, we can complete the second and third parts of the implant – for a smile you can love again! With good oral hygiene and proper care, dental implants can last a very long time.

Dr. Rehder and the entire staff are friendly and compassionate. They accommodate my needs as a patient and treat me as a personal friend. Professionally, they provide the utmost care and advice, the patient always comes first. I can’t say enough positive comments about this practice.

Dr. Rehder is very professional, yet not too serious as he is doing your teeth. He makes it relaxing and is able to keep your mind away from his work (I have never liked going to the dentist, but Dr. Rehder makes the experience as close to pleasant as a dentist visit can be).

Thank you Dr. Rehder and Christine for the "always exciting" and "never a dull moment" orthodontist appointment. See you in two weeks to do it all over again. Ok maybe-not ALL over again.
