I've been performing implant dentistry for over 20 years now. An exciting technology that we've been doing for the last couple of years has been using the CAD/CAM technology, these scans that we can do, 3D scans, and actually developing a plan for people who have either debilitated teeth, teeth that aren't serving them anymore, painful teeth, or whether they need a whole mouthful of teeth. Their only option before might have been a denture, or maybe they still are in a denture, and with this technology, we can replace a denture or their debilitated condition with a whole new set of teeth. Some are calling this All-on-4®. Others are calling this Hybridge®. We just like to look at it as an opportunity to replace and give someone back the teeth that they've lost over time. As Americans are aging, they're looking for other opportunities to be able to have options other than dentures, and this is really a tremendous opportunity to help them with that. We are learning more about it, studying more, using more technology, to be able to provide people with this service.
Dental Implants Explained
Dental implants are the ideal solution for missing teeth or teeth damaged by trauma, disease, or decay. Made of strong titanium, dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed beneath your gums.
Because they literally fuse with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration, dental implants provide a strong, sturdy foundation for many tooth replacement options, or restorations, including:
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
Regardless of which dental implant option you use, your new replacement teeth will blend in seamlessly with your smile!
The Many Advantages Of Dental Implants
Compared to other methods of replacing damaged or missing teeth, dental implants offer many benefits because they:
- Look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth
- Provide up to 90 percent of the chewing power of your natural teeth
- Can last a lifetime with proper care
- Do not require any preparation of healthy, surrounding teeth
- Prevent bone loss in your jaw, helping you maintain your youthful look
- Get a complete restoration in a single appointment with the help of CEREC technology
Our Dental Implant Process
To be a suitable candidate for dental implants, you will need a strong, thick jawbone. During an initial consultation, one of our talented dentists will evaluate your teeth, bone structure, and overall health to determine if dental implants are the best treatment option for you.Doctor Aparna Menon on dental implants Read Transcript
If you have missing teeth and you've been considering dental implants, we are a practice for you. We do ... all our doctors are trained to perform or to surgically place implants and restore them.
What dental implants are, they are metal poles that go into the jaw, over which the crown goes on, which is what you see, the tooth structure that you see when you talk. Connecting both of that is an abutment, like a piece that goes.
I have been trained, in residency, to place dental implants. I've also been trained after, to perfect my skills further, and to learn a lot more about placing implants. For all my patients who are interested in getting a dental implant, I do get the one beam CT. It is a standard of care, and it also helps me to find out exactly how the anatomy is, where the important landmark structures are, like your nerve, your sinuses, and once I have the cone beam CT, I go to the process of studying it and then designing, figuring out where exactly the implant has to go.
Most of the time, when the patients come back, we can do the crown in-house with our CEREC technology. If there are times it cannot be done, we send the crowns out, so I would say, within three to four months of placing that implant, you could have a functioning tooth.
To evaluate your current situation and precisely plan your treatment, we will use state-of-the-art dental technologies and methods, including:
- CT scans
- 3D imaging systems
- Close-up photos and exact impressions of your teeth
Once we have planned accordingly, we will numb the area with anesthetic so you won’t feel a thing and then gently place your dental implants. We can even relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options so you won’t be nervous.
In some cases, we may be able to place your dental implants and attach your restorations in a single visit for a same-day smile service! Depending on your situation, you may need to complete a brief healing period before we attach your beautiful replacement teeth. Either way, you’ll walk out smiling wide again!
