Healthy living is happy living. A healthy person is more confident and approachable when compared to someone with poor health. Since oral health is a crucial part of a person's overall health, dental hygiene and dental care become crucial. Tooth decay and gum infection are just a few examples of dental problems that can lead to tooth loss.

When there is tooth loss, more serious health problems can arise. Replacing a lost tooth with tooth restoration becomes essential from the perspective of oral and overall health. Dental implants are wonderful in restoring missing teeth in patients.

At our dental office, we have been restoring dental implants for many years. Dr. Negari is highly skilled in restoring implants. The painless treatment and the comprehensive care offered by our dental team have helped our dental office build long lasting relationship with our patients.

Implant Dentistry – The Cure and Its Benefits

Dental implants are arguably the best solution for lost teeth. The implant is surgically placed in the jaw bone of the patient. It comes in the place of the lost tooth root. Dr. Negari will team you up with a specialist for this placement. Different types of drills are used during the process. After the placement, the implant is left to heal for a period of about 3-6 months. During this period, osseointegration takes place where the implant bonds with the bone tissue to become an integral part of the supporting bone. This process improves the functionality of the artificial tooth restoration. The benefits of dental implants over other options are listed below.

  • An implanted tooth has higher chewing efficiency than any other restoration.
  • The restoration is more stable than any other tooth replacement option.
  • The jaw bone height is maintained because of the dental implant.
  • The implanted tooth can last for a longer period of time when compared to other restorations.

Implant Dentistry Los Gatos – Surgery and Recovery

The surgical placement of a dental implant in the jaw bone requires two to three dental visits. Initially, Dr. Negari will refer the patient to an oral surgeon or periodontist to find out if the patient has enough jaw bone to hold the implant. The patient's oral health is thoroughly checked to ensure that there is no gum infection. Once the specialist confirms that the surgery can be performed, a treatment plan is set after discussing it with the patient. The position of the implant placement and the position of the crown are perfectly planned during the process. For instance, in some cases where there is misalignment, an offset may be necessary in the placement of the crown.

During the first visit, the specialist administers local anesthesia and sedation if necessary. A small incision is made in the gums and drills are used to create a recess in the jaw bone. The implant is carefully torqued in the jaw bone. The gums are sutured back and left to heal for a period of a few months.

The specialist checks the extent of healing during periodic visits. Dr. Negari takes impressions to get the crown fabricated in the lab. The abutment is fixed over the implant and the crown is either cemented or screwed over it. After the surgery is complete, Dr. Negari spends time explaining to patients how to take care of the implanted tooth. There are special oral hygiene tools which may help with the cleaning process.
