Quality Care in all Phases of Treatment
There are three phases to dental implant treatment:
1. Preliminary Treatment: Dental implants rely on a healthy jaw bone, so the first order of care will be an inspection of your jaw bone density. In a small percentage of people, the jaw may be too weak to support dental implants, which is particularly true for those who have experienced tooth loss for an extended time. When teeth are missing, the bone begins to shrink due to a lack of blood supply and stimulation.
Dr. Benitez can fortify the bone with a simple bone graft procedure. After the bone has healed, you are ready for placement of your implant posts.
3D Imaging and Treatment Planning
The dental office of Dr. Raymond R. Benitez offers state-of-the-art, highly precise 3D digital imaging and implant surgical planning software. He can use these tools to analyze the anatomy of your jaw and determine the best sites for implant placement before surgery. This saves time and money, and shortens recovery time.
2. Dental Implant Placement: With his extensive training and modern technology, Dr. Benitez strategically plans and places your implant posts into the jaw. The posts are made of titanium, a bio-compatible material that allows bone and tissue to grow and develop around them.
As the posts fuse with the jaw, it promotes health and prevents bone loss that can give you a prematurely aged appearance.
3. Implant-Supported Restorations: After approximately three months, your implants become new tooth roots and are ready to support prosthetic crowns. You can have a single missing tooth replaced, a row of teeth, or a full arch of teeth. Custom restorations are matched to natural tooth enamel and complement your smile.
Superior Care and Comfort
Dental implants have over a 95 percent rate of success. When cared for properly, your implants can last a lifetime. Their beauty and ability to promote jaw health are why dental implant restorations are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement treatment.
