Implants
 

Are you a candidate for dental implants?

Modern techniques have made it possible for nearly everyone who is missing teeth to qualify as a candidate for implant treatment. The determining factors are a sufficient amount of quality bone, good oral hygiene, and generally good health.

Unlike many dentists in the community, Dr. Palani is skilled in the both the surgical placement of the dental implants and the restoration with crown and bridgework. He is one of few dentists in the area to have attained Fellowship status with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. This is a significant advantage for the patient who requires not only a restoration of the natural function but also a beautiful cosmetic result.

What is a dental implant?

Today, the preferred method of tooth replacement is dental implant treatment. Dental implants replace missing tooth roots, and form a stable foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like your natural teeth. Dental implants also preserve the remaining bone by providing the stimulation previously provided by the natural tooth roots.

While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. With dental implants it is not necessary to grind down the adjacent teeth for a bridge, or secure a partial denture to adjacent teeth with clasps which can cause tooth loosening. Implant-supported replacement teeth spare patients many of the disadvantages of traditional false teeth.

Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling; you may forget you ever lost a tooth. You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your dentures don’t feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news! Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own! Under proper conditions, such as placement by an experienced and skilled surgeon and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime. Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates for implants.
