Brentwood area dentist offers dental implant surgery and restoration
By Dr. Jamil Alkhoury
The decision of how to replace missing teeth should be made quickly. When a single tooth has been extracted or lost due to disease or trauma, it is essential to make an appointment with Dr. Jamil Alkhoury, lead dentist at Brentwood Family Dental to discuss replacement options. Those seeking permanent treatment for lost tooth may consider the benefits of dental implant surgery to restore the smile.
The dental implant explained
Dental implants are titanium posts. They are placed, during a brief oral surgery, into the bone of the jaw. The implant rests in the bone, just as a natural tooth root does. Placement stimulates the process of osseointegration in which bone wraps around the implant to hold it firmly in place. The implant has an abutment at the top that can be finished with a dental crown to replace a single tooth. However, for some patients, implants hold a denture or bridge for replacement of multiple teeth.
X-rays are taken beforehand to ensure there is sufficient bone for successful placement of the implant. Then, patients are made comfortable for this outpatient procedure. Surgery for dental implants is done with IV sedation as well as local anesthetic. The entire process is completed rather quickly, and patients love the permanent solution!
