Implant Dentistry - The Implant Dentist Surgery Experts
Dental implants are an investment.
Implants an ideal treatment for replacing one or all missing teeth. An implant is an artificial root that is placed inside the jaw (bone). Post and crown are then placed on the implant as the final restoration. Implants can also be used for stability of loose and ill-fitting full or partial dentures. Implants will give you the chewing confidence of natural teeth.
Dental implants can provide artificial teeth that look natural and feel secure, and can also be used to attach full or partial dentures. Implants, however, are not an option for everyone. Because implants require surgery, patients must be in good health, have healthy gums, have adequate bone to support the implant and be committed to meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits. If you are considering implants, a thorough evaluation by Dr. Nader Ahdout will help determine if you would be a good candidate.

When it comes to dental implants and dentures, a patient can choose between a dental implant or dentures. Dental implants are made of either titanium or a material called dentin. In titanium implants, the root is built up around the tooth from the base material. On the other hand, dentures work as a tooth substitute by fully enclosing the gums around the tooth.
In order to understand the best results of you must also know how to treat your own teeth and jaw. Get yourself checked every 6 months to make sure that no dental problems are slowing down your progress.

Implant dentistry offers a lot of benefits but before undergoing any procedure, it is important to find the right dentist. For instance, it would be better to find a cosmetic dentist for a tooth implant dentistry rather than a restorative dentist. In addition, you should go to a qualified implant dentistry dentist as Dr. Ahdout will give you the best service and help you replace missing teeth with dental implants and restorative dentures.
When are Dental Implants the appropriate solution?
Dental implantology can be beneficial to a wide range of patients. Almost anyone who is missing a tooth or teeth, and is in good overall health is a candidate for implant treatment. Some health conditions, such as diabetes and smoking can reduce the success rate of the procedure; however, there are very few instances when implants are considered to be completely inappropriate.
One of the most important considerations is the quality and quantity of bone that is available to secure the dental implant. In these cases, Dr. Ahdout often uses advanced bone grafting techniques to augment bone, making it possible for most people to benefit from dental implants.
What is involved in placing dental implants?
A: First, surgery is performed to place the anchor. Surgery can take up to several hours, and up to six months may be required for the bone to grow around the anchor and firmly hold it in place. Some implants require a second surgery in which a post is attached to connect the anchor to the replacement teeth. With other implants, the anchor and post are already attached and are placed at the same time.
After the gums have had several weeks to heal, the next step is begun. The artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. Because several fittings may be required, this step can take one to two months to complete.

Advances in Esthetic Dental Implants and Implant Dentistry
A great advance has been the successful replacement of lost natural teeth by osseointegrated implants. Many years of dental experience have improved dentistry techniques to maximize the chance for long-term implant stability and function.
The use of dental implants for the oral rehabilitation of fully and partially dental parts has greatly improved and popularized general dentistry, creating additional dental implant treatment options in complex cases in which functional rehabilitation was previously limited or inadequate. The predictability and short/long-term success has been well demonstrated, both in removable and fixed prostheses.
Dental Implants Objectives
Implant Dentistry is one of the treatments to replace missing teeth. Their use in the treatment of complete and partial edentulism has become an integral treatment modality in dentistry. Dental implants have a number of advantages over conventional fixed partial dentures.
A high success rate (above 97% for 10 years) A decreased risk of caries and endodontic problems of adjacent teeth Improved maintenance of bone in the edentulous site Decreased sensitivity of adjacent teeth
The objective of modern Implant Dentistry is to restore the patient to normal contour, comfort, aesthetic, and health whether by removing caries or replacing several teeth. A fact that makes dental implants a unique process is the ability to achieve these goals completely, no matter the injury or disease-related a patient has. Even with all these benefits when the job is finally done by the dentist, it is important to maintain proper dental hygiene so the implant can last longer and look perfect throughout the years.
A dental implant is considered to be the best option for replacing a single missing tooth.
Dental implants are a modern miracle that can be used in a variety of applications to replace a missing tooth, or teeth.
Replacing a single tooth. Most dentists agree that a dental implant is the best option for replacing a single missing tooth. A dental implant looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth. With proper care, an implant can last a lifetime.
Replacing multiple teeth. There are several options for replacing multiple teeth, depending on the number of teeth that are missing. We can use multiple single dental implants, implant-supported bridges or implant-supported partial dentures.
Replacing all your teeth. If you are missing all your teeth, or have teeth that simply cannot be saved, we can provide you with implant-supported dentures, fixed implant-supported dentures or multiple implant-supported bridges.

Dental implants are used for several reasons but the most common reason for their use is a complete or partial denture that is attached to the front of the mouth. This type of dentures, also known as 'front teeth' can only be replaced using an implant since they do not attach to the bone. In the past, people who had lost all of their teeth could not chew properly and were at severe risk of developing infection or gum disease. Today, dentists have developed several dental implants for different uses including prosthetic and osseointegrated dentures. With osseointegrated implants, the dentist sews synthetic material into the bone so that it will fuse into the supporting bone. This process of Osseointegration is the and is also considered to be a successful treatment.
