Dental Implants Presentation

What Are Dental Implants?

A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw. The difference is that the implant is made of titanium – the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints. When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, the surgeon first replaces the root with a small dental implant.

Time is allowed for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth.  A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment. In many cases a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.

A smiling elderly man

“Don’t be afraid to Smile.”

For years I’d felt like a part of my body was missing — because my teeth were. My dentist told me that dental implants would make me feel and look a lot better. OK, I said. Now, I’m thrilled. I can smile, eat anything, and enjoy a good laugh with my friends.

Surgical Advances

Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Ismaili is able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth extraction – further minimizing your number of surgical procedures.

Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Dr. Ismaili performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary.  The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

Patient Review By Don F

As an attorney my smile is as important in the conference room as it is in the courtroom. My experience with Dr. Ismaili and his staff could not have been better. Everything took place exactly as I had been told, the surgical procedure was carried out with such skill that it was amazing to wake up and realize it was over and, the followup by Dr. Ismaili and his staff was phenomenal including calls to check on me at home following the procedure. Without reservation I would recommend Dr. Ismaili and his staff to anyone seeking dental implants or other dental procedures. You will not be disappointed!

Patient Review By Kathy S

I broke a crown off before Christmas. I had my tooth extracted and bone graft done in preparation for an implant. Dr. Carmichael and his assistant Jennifer were wonderful. I was a little anxious but they reassured me and the procedure was done efficiently. I have very little pain, no swelling and felt wonderful after surgery. They were awesome!!

Patient Review By Joi B

I was very fearful of the dental implant and sinus lift procedures due to some negative experiences in other dental offices. Dr. Ismaili and his staff did an excellent job of educating and alleviating my concerns; they were very understanding. I also value their punctuality and professionalism; it goes without saying customer service is hard to come by these days, but this staff is all over it! Thank you Dr. Ismaili and Staff!!!
