Mayo Clinic's approach

At Mayo Clinic, specialists draw upon their expertise and vast experience in dental implant surgery to help provide exactly the treatment and care that you need.

  • Experience. Each year, Mayo Clinic's highly skilled experts replace missing teeth with dental implants in hundreds of people.
  • Teamwork. A multispecialty treatment team works together to provide a customized solution for you. The team may include dentists who design and fit artificial teeth (prosthodontists); dentists specializing in treating structures that support the teeth, such as gums and bones (periodontists); specialists in ear, nose and throat (ENT); or mouth, jaw and face (oral and maxillofacial) surgeons.
  • Research. Mayo Clinic doctors track the results of all dental implant surgeries to help assess the reliability of dental implants and the effectiveness of various procedures.
