Crowns Filling And Veneers In The Same Day

It is a fact of life that millions of Americans suffer tooth loss—mostly due to tooth decay, gum disease or injury. In addition to changing facial appearance, missing teeth have a negative impact on confidence and self-esteem. For many years, the only options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures.

Today, modern dentistry has the answer, and no patient needs to accept a life with missing teeth. Dental implants offer a permanent solution to these problems.

A dentist now can implant a material that serves as a new root to replace the missing root. Sturdy titanium posts are anchored directly into the jawbone, providing a completely functional artificial root that serves as the anchor for a new artificial tooth or crown. The bone grows around the implanted post the same way bone grows around the natural root of a tooth.

The amazing result! Dental implants that look, feel, and function exactly like a strong natural tooth.

Advantages of Dental Implants

  • Improved appearance
  • Improved speech
  • Improved comfort
  • Improved ability to chew
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Improved oral health

Why Implants?

Dental implants can achieve the following:

  • Replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth
  • Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture
  • Provide support for a denture making it more comfortable and secure

Types of Implants

There are basically two types of implants used today:

  • Endosteal (in the bone). This is the most common type of implant used, and each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is often used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
  • Subperiosteal (on the bone). These implants are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework’s posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.

New Operating Guidelines

During the COVID-9 pandemic, the wellbeing of our staff and patients is our highest priority. For this reason, we have implemented several changes in order to support a safe and healthy environment.

— If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-9 or any other illness, please reschedule your appointment. Dental appointments will be spaced in a manner that allows for proper social distancing between patients.

— When you arrive at the office, please remain in your car, call our office to let us know you are here, and a staff member will come out to meet you. The staff member will take your temperature with a no-touch thermometer and ask some COVID-19 screening questions. We request that you remain in your car until we call to let you know that your chair is ready.

— Please arrive at your appointment wearing your own mask. If you do not have a mask, we can provide one.

— Please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before entering the office.

— We ask that patients do not bring others with them into the office, unless you are a parent or guardian of a patient who is a minor or has special needs. If you need to accompany a patient to the door, you will then be asked to wait in your vehicle or outside the office during their appointment.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this difficult time, and we look forward to seeing you at your next appointment!


Sincerely,
George Rizkalla, DDS Team
