Dental Implant Surgery
The UMOMSA faculty, in close collaboration with the restorative dentist, help plan and then place dental implants used to replace missing teeth. Bone grafting (synthetic or autogenous) is often required to provide for an adequate bone foundation to allow for implant anchorage. The surgeon can also modify gingival (gum) tissue surrounding implants when necessary to make teeth placed on implants look even more natural.
Complex implant cases such as those involving significant trauma or reconstruction due to a tumor/cancer require the co-ordination between the surgeon and our specialized Maxillofacial Prosthodontist, Dr. Dima Ghunaim.
Comprehensive complex dental and maxillofacial prosthodontics is provided at the UMOMSA office under the expertise of Dr. Dima Ghunaim
