Dr. Yoshikane has trained in Frankfurt, Germany at the Dentsply Surgical Center in Implant Surgical Placement and Restorative Techniques.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost one or more teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Dr. Yoshikane is certified with several implant manufacturers and has placed several hundred implants, offering his patients not only the best care but also a beautiful smile.
Endosteal (in the bone): This is the most commonly used type of implant. The various types include screws or cylinders surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.
Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, Dr. Yoshikane will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.
After Your Dental Implant , your own teeth require conscientious at-home oral care and regular dental visits. Dental implants are like your own teeth and will require the same care. In order to keep your implant clean and plaque-free, brushing and flossing still apply!
After treatment, Dr. Yoshikane and his team will work closely with you to develop the best care plan for your case. Periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implant, teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.
