I did not know a trip to the dentist could be anything but uncomfortable. Wow, a heated neck wrap and throw for my legs and all those gentle voices saying everything is going great. You are doing very good. All the staff is awesome, what good vibrations flow in your office.

Dr. Angela R. Cameron has the experience to educate and provide quality implant dental restoration care right here in Johnson City, TN and serving the entire Tri-City region with this procedure for young and senior patients alike.
If you are missing one or more teeth, you want replacements that are as natural as possible. Implants are the closest thing to having natural teeth! It is critical to replace the tooth root in conjunction with the visible part of the tooth (the crown) because the natural tooth roots, which are embedded into the bone, hold the bone in place and preserve the bone. Without this structural support the bone deteriorates. This is called bone resorption.
Without an implant a patient would likely experience a collapsed facial profile, a dramatic increase of wrinkles around the mouth and compromised lip support.
This can be avoided through preserving the bone through a dental implant. When the implant is inserted into the jaw, a bond is formed and the jawbone grows into the implant.
The outcome is a durable perfect fit that is as good or often better than your original teeth.
- Preserves the integrity of your facial structure

- Allows you to broaden your food options
- No compromise of adjacent teeth
- Hygiene is made easy again

If you have an existing implant and need follow-up care call or stop by our office and we will schedule your dental appointment in a time valued manner.
