During the last 20 years, dental implants have become a desirable alternative to other methods of replacing missing teeth. Excellent success rates and a range of available options give dentists a variety of new ways to treat and replace lost teeth.
Dr. Kuipers can evaluate your case and tell you if you are a candidate for dental implants. Structurally, a dental implant is a titanium-based cylinder that replaces the missing tooth root. After a period of time, other parts are placed on the implant to enable Dr. Kuipers to eventually place a crown (cap) on the implant. Implants can also be used to support full or partial dentures, dramatically improving denture retention and stability.
Most patients with adequate bone mass can have implants, although it varies among individuals. Typically an x-ray and CT-scan are performed to determine if you have enough bone to place the implant, as well as to verify the size and kind of implant that should be placed.
North Garland Dental, Implants & Orthodontics provides an anxiety-free dental experience for all our patients. Sedation dentistry eliminates pain, reduces muscle spasms and makes your oral surgery a pleasant experience. Dental sedatives are minimally intrusive although still require Dr. Kuipers to analyze each patient’s medical history determining the right medication along with taking procedure time into consideration. The three most common dental sedatives are Nitrous Oxide, and Oral Conscious Sedation.
