providing a wide range of tooth restoration solutions? If this sounds like you, it might be time for you to call Brentwood Family Dental to speak to Drs. Jamil Alkhoury
and Diana Belli
about the benefits of dental implants
. Tooth implants allow patients
to replace one tooth or all the teeth through an extensive process. Learning about implants and their purpose can help patients better understand the benefits of undergoing the implant procedure.
What are dental implants?
Understanding dental implants is the first step in determining if they are suitable for a patient. Drs. Jamil Alkhoury
Diana Belli of Brentwood Family Dental
describe the dental implants
as a metal tooth
root replacement. The restoration looks like a small screw. During oral surgery, the implant is placed and restored to replace one, several, or all the teeth in the smile.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
Our dentists find that the best candidates for dental implants are those with a healthy smile and sufficient bone to support the implant itself. While dental implants do stimulate bone growth when placed, they still require enough bone to take hold into
the jaw. To determine if a patient is a good candidate, our team will often start with x-ray images to look at the structure of the bone and decide if it can hold the implant and ensure a successful placement.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
There are several advantages to placing dental implants. Dental implants:
- Provide permanent restoration
- Are natural-looking
- Replace one or more teeth
- Offer stabilization for full dentures
- They are made of biocompatible materials
- Are easy to care for
- Maintain natural bone for a more youthful appearance
- Combat bone resorption
- Rebuild bone of the jaw
What is the process of obtaining dental implants?
Before and After results of Implants
These are actual patients treated by Dr. Jamil Alkhoury - "Before" and "after" results may not occur for all patients.
The procedure from start to finish can take some time, but it’s worth the wait for those looking for a more permanent solution to their tooth loss. At dental implants
we always start with an initial evaluation and consultation visit with the patient. During this time, imaging is performed to check the health of the smile and the bone of the jaw. Planning of the placement of the implants
is done during this time as well. Patients book their oral surgery, during which the dentist places the implant into the bone. The healing process takes several weeks, after which restorations are placed on the abutment of
the implant. This may include a crown, bridge, or denture.
