Dental Implants in Plano, TX
Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Fields is able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of 3-4 months of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implants can be placed at the same time as a tooth extraction - further minimizing the number of surgical procedures.
