What Happens During Dental Implant Treatment?


Implant treatment is usually performed by a general dentist, oral surgeon, prosthodontist, periodontist or a team of these doctors. At Tavormina Dentistry we are proud to be able to say that we are your dental implant team. We provide both placement of dental implants, restorations for dental implants, sinus lifts and bone grafting procedures related to placing dental implants.  If we receive a referral from a general dentist, we can do bone grafting and implant placement for the general dentist and then the general dentist completes the restorations for his patient. We have also done sinus lifts and bone grafting for periodontists only trained in implant placement.

 To devise the best treatment plan for you we first complete a medical and dental history and a thorough oral examination with x-rays. We want to make sure you are a candidate for dental implants from a dental and medical perspective.

First, a member of your team surgically places the implant in the jaw with the top of the implant just above the top of the bone. Your gums cover the implants. Generally, from three to six months or more is allowed for the bone tissue to grow around the implant and hold them securely in place.

Immediately after surgery we will give you specific post-surgical instructions to assure the best possible healing. We are unique in that we are trained to give you medication to prevent pain, swelling and infection. At the implant placement appointment you may be fitted with temporary dentures or natural-looking teeth to help you function as normally as possible until your dental implants are ready for the final restoration. You may have special dietary and oral hygiene instructions.

Once the jawbone has firmly healed around the implant, a small post is attached to each implant. The post protrudes through the gumline and serves as an anchor for the replacement tooth. After your gums have fully healed, the replacement teeth or dentures are securely attached to the posts.

  2. When a tooth is lost the specialized bony process that houses the tooth begins to resorb due to lack of stimulation. This causes a decrease in width and height of the bone in the area the tooth is lost. Neighboring teeth and opposing teeth begin to move into the space. This causes food lodgment, subsequent decay, gum disease and abnormal forces being transmitted to teeth leading to fracture of cusps which may necessitate root canal treatment or extraction.

  3. There are different ways in which a missing tooth or teeth can be replaced and dental implants are one of them. Dental implants are good and effective for patients who require fixed teeth replacement, which could be single, multiple or it could be a complete mouth with dental implants. The quality of the dental implants is of utmost importance. Naturally the skill of the surgeon who performs the operation should be perfect, and besides, a lot depends upon the oral and general health of the patient. The dental implant requires the latest dental equipment and technology. The disinfection and sterilization procedures have to be perfect so that there is no infection for the patient.

  6. Dental implants are typically composed of titanium or similar hypoallergenic substance to ensure that the structures are sturdy and lasting, and more importantly compatible with the bone and underlying gum tissues. Consult a competent prosthodontist or a qualified oral surgeon trained in the nuances of implantation to help assess the anchoring procedure appropriate for your specific needs. Dental implants are the cutting edge method of replacing lost teeth. These are artificial prosthetics that look quite natural and are implanted into the jawbone with a titanium screw and abutment. This method of attachment was stumbled upon accidentally by a doctor in Europe who discovered the amazingly strong bonding ability of titanium with human bone.

    Based on what I have read in an article through web, in history, Dr. Leonard Linkow placed his first dental implant in 1952, four months after he graduated from dental school. By 1992, Dr. Linkow had placed over 19,000 dental implants and stopped counting. He retired from private practice in 2002 leaving a body of work that included 12 books and 36 patents. Many implant dentists refer to Dr. Linkow as the father of modern implant dentistry.

    A dentist, also known as a 'dental surgeon', is a health care practitioner that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and conditions of the oral cavity. The dentist's supporting team aides in providing oral health services. The dental team includes dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians, and in some states, dental therapists.

  28. One of the most popular reasons to visit the dentist these days is to explore whitening options for your teeth. Many people have habits and consume products that stain teeth. Coffee, tea, wine, and cigarettes are all common culprits that can cause unsightly discoloration or stains on your upper and lower teeth. This can be improved or even completely eliminated with advances in whitening techniques and technology. Teeth Whitening has become a popular and cost-effective way to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile in a short period of time.
