Reasons to Consider Dental Implants

When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

Testimonials



You’ve lost a tooth, or perhaps several. Chewing is difficult and smiling, well it’s too embarrassing. There is no question that the quality of your life has changed. Dental implants are the solution to renewing your smile, your chewing ability and quite frankly your quality of life. Taher Dhoon, DMD will perform the implant and will design and fit the replacement teeth or do restorative work on faulty crowns ALL IN 1 OFFICE.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Dental implants can be placed in either the upper or lower jaws. Due to the biocompatible properties of titanium, a dental implant fuses with the bone and becomes a good anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used in solutions for replacing single or multiple missing teeth.

Many people who consider implants have removable, conventional dentures for lower and upper jaws, or have removable bridges. These people experience a significant improvement in their ability to chew food comfortably after their dental implant treatment.

3D SCANNING FOR IMPLANT PLACEMENT

  • The 3D CT Scan offers the highest level of surgical predictability, resulting in successful surgical outcomes for patients.
  • Lower patient cost than a medical CT and over ten times less radiation compared to a medical CT.
  • A quick and easy 20-second scan produces the most anatomically accurate 3-D images of the mouth, face, and jaw.
  • An open-environment scan increasing the patient’s comfort level.
  • Reduces surgery time.
  • The in house 3D CT Scan helps patients avoid hospital visits and multiple appointments.
  • Within minutes of the 3D CT Scan, our team is able to offer patients an immediate virtual diagnosis and treatment plan – all in one visit.
  • Dr. John uses this model to virtually complete your entire implant procedure before you even set foot in the office. After this “test run,” Dr. John will have a thorough understanding of all the possible risks and complications of your implant surgery.

The Dental Implant Procedure

The implant team usually includes either a periodontist or an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who implants the posts into the patient’s mouth, and a prosthodontist or general dentist who designs and fits the replacement teeth or permanent bridge. Taher Dhoon, DMD will implant, design and fit the replacement teeth or do restorative work on faulty crowns all in one office.

At the first appointment, we use Carestream 3D Cone Beam Imaging to determine if the jaw bone is adequate to hold the titanium posts. Within minutes of the Cone Beam 3D CT Scan, we are able to offer patients an immediate virtual diagnosis and treatment plan-all in one visit. Treatment with dental implants is complicated and takes meticulous planning for best results. Today, the implants being placed often only require one surgical procedure using a local anesthetic and sedative.

Is Old Age a Problem?

Occasionally, older patients express concern that their age may prevent them from enjoying the benefits of dental implants. However, health is more of a determining factor than age. If you’re healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you’re probably healthy enough to receive dental implants. Certain chronic diseases may contraindicate dental implant treatment. The dentist will determine if you are a candidate for dental implants after a careful evaluation of your dental and health history.

How Will Dental Implants Affect My Life?

Dental implant-supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. This means that you can eat and drink whatever you choose. But most importantly, dental implants improve quality of life in a very concrete way. People who have felt embarrassed and worried because of their tooth problems are often overwhelmed by what new permanent teeth can do for their self-esteem.
