Both Doctors place a heavy emphasis on the utilization of dental implants in their practices. In addition to being trained Prosthodontists, both Dr. Wayne Simmons and Dr. Bryhn Simmons have advanced training and experience in surgically placing and restoring dental implants. They provide surgical replacement of missing teeth, root structures and bone by incorporating dental implants and, when necessary, bone grafting in the treatment for their patients. Dental implants typically require two distinctive phases of treatment; the first phase is the surgical placement of an implant into the bone to provide a functional replacement of a missing root (roots) of a tooth (teeth). The second phase is the fabrication and attachment of the tooth (teeth) to the implant(s). Dr. Simmons routinely provides these services for his patients.
