Dental implants have rapidly become the most preferred solution to permanently treat tooth loss with 500,000 dental implants placed each year. Dental implants offer over a 95 percent success rate to offer a lifelong alternative to replace missing teeth. As the only form of dental prosthetic to closely mimic the appearance and function of natural teeth, you will make a wise investment in your smile and oral health. To benefit from dental implants in Scripps Ranch, you will need to undergo a surgical procedure. Dr. Greg Friedman has recently obtained his certification for implant placement and restoration. Now, you can have the entire procedure performed from the comfort of one dental office.
Complete Dental Implants Under One Roof
The process to receive dental implants requires multiple phases, which are preformed over the course of several months. Often, many dental offices are not equipped or certified to perform each phase of treatment. As a result, you are often referred to an out-of-office oral surgeon for the implant placement and then again to another implant specialist for the restoration phase. Now, you can skip the headache and hassle by having the entire process completed in Dr. Friedman’s office.
Dr. Friedman is specially trained and certified to handle the placement and restoration of dental implants. From start to finish, you will be under the care of one dentist, who you already know and trust.
Dental Implant Process
To begin the process for dental implants, you will need to undergo a consultation to determine if dental implants are right for you. To benefit from dental implants, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone density. In addition, you cannot have any medical conditions, lifestyle habits, or take medications that increase your risk for implant failure.
If you are a candidate, Dr. Friedman will create a customized treatment plan. During the first phase of treatment, titanium posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Through an incision that is made into the gum, the biocompatible posts are placed into the jaw. Then, the incision is stitched closed so healing can begin.
Your jaw will naturally heal to the implant post over the next several weeks. After the jawbone has healed, the second phase will begin. During the second phase, the gum is reopened to attach abutments to the implant post. The gum tissue is closed around the abutment to allow for proper healing. During the restoration phase, custom-made crowns are attached to the abutments to permanently replace missing teeth.
