Dental implants are now considered the gold standard in dentistry. With our success rates near 100% (actual success rate 98-99%), you can feel confident that tooth replacement with Dental implant(s) could provide a Lifetime of function. In the Literature, it is well documented that the long-term success rate of dental implants can be greater than 90% even after 15 years of function.
There are a lot of treatment options when incorporating dental implants into your treatment recommendations. A dental implant can be restored with a single or multiple restoration (Crowns/Bridges), clinical attachment to help secure a loose Partial or Complete Dentures directly to the implant or a combination of the two. With the use of our Dental CT scan, we have the ability to appropriately determine the quality and amount of bone available to place dental implants. Proper planning attributes to our higher success rate. Our office offers Guided Implant Surgical placement of implants. This combines the information from your Dental CT scan with specialized software; you now have the ability to place implants without cutting or any sutures. Under certain circumstances, a Dental Implant can be placed the same day as the extraction (taking out) of the tooth. However, immediate placement of Implants into sites of multi-rooted teeth and/or infected sites is far less predictable and most of the time avoided at this office. When appropriate, temporary restorations can also be placed on the same day as Implant placement.
Dental implants are highly predictable and have the highest level of success in Dentistry. Our surgeons place the implant with restoration in mind. Off-angled implants are avoided when possible at this office. Proper fixture angulations and positioning are ensured to maximize the esthetic results of the final restoration. We work with only select laboratories, enabling our Doctors to restore Dental Implants to maximum Esthetics and Function.
If you already have a General Dentist, Feel free to have our Dental Implant Specialist place the Implant Fixture. If you do not have one, then our Implant Team (Dental Implant Specialist/General Dentist) can provide treatment from a single location. Working with the right team does ensure a long-term success rate with dental implants as well as other restorative procedures.
