Dental Implants for Unconventional Patients
Have you ever had a dentist tell you that you weren’t a candidate for dental implants? It may be partially true…but it could just be that your dentist didn’t have the capabilities of using modified implant techniques or variety of implant designs that would work.
One of the most common reasons why people are told they are “not candidates for implants” is because of bone loss that occurs following the removal of teeth. A jaw that is too thin or has resorbed (shrunk away) cannot support a traditional type of implant.
At Park Avenue Oral and Facial Surgery, we use modified placement protocols and implant designs to change the way the artificial “roots” are installed. For instance, a longer, more slender design may be placed at a different angle in the jaw. This allows us to maximize the use of healthy bone structure, rather than try to work in compromised areas. The results offer the same great stability and smile rehabilitation as other implants.
Trusting an Expert With Your Smile
Implants ought to last forever. Our board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon knows exactly what it takes to place different varieties of implants in various areas of the mouth. After all, it’s a complex process and not something that a general family dentist would generally be familiar with performing. Even if your entire smile needs to be restored, dental implants with an oral surgeon are almost always a possibility.
Our state-of-the-art facility offers services such as sedation dentistry, so that you can relax from the start of the procedure to the finish. Your comfort and oral health are our top priorities.
