Dr. Sawa specializes in the restorations of dental implants. This can make a dramatic improvement in your life and well-being. If you have a missing tooth an implant can be utilized to avoid damaging adjacent healthy teeth that would be cut down if a bridge were made. Moreover, if you have dentures that do not fit, your denture can be transformed with the use of a few implants into an amazingly retentive and comfortable prosthesis that will give you renewed confidence and assurance in smiling and greatly improved ability to eat and function.
