Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth within the mouth. Implants are normally made out of titanium, which has been proven safe when used in surgical procedures. The implant is inserted deep into the bone of your jaw, fusing with the bone in just a few short months. Once the implant has healed, a crown, bridge, or even a custom denture can be made to snap onto the abutment of the implant.

Why are Dental Implants needed?

You might need or want an implant because you’re missing a tooth. Unlike a partial denture or a fixed bridge that compromises your surrounding teeth, an implant acts on its own to replace what’s missing. Alternatively, you might need a bridge or denture, and want the restoration to be more securely in place. Multiple implants can be placed to hold onto either one of these prosthetic choices.

Who is a candidate for a Dental Implant?

We will examine your mouth and teeth to determine if you are a good candidate for an implant. Implants are suitable for patients who have otherwise healthy and solid bone structure. If you’re missing bone, we may suggest that you have a bone grafting done prior to the implant surgery. Implants can last for decades without needing any special treatment or care.

What happens during the Dental Implant procedure?

We begin by preparing the area where the implant will be placed . We then insert the titanium post of the implant deep into the bone. This post is given time to heal and bond with the surrounding bone. Osseointegration, or fusion with the bone, normally takes about six months, though this can vary from one patient to another. Once the implant has healed, we can make a new crown, denture, or bridge for the restoration, enhancing your smile and replacing the teeth that are currently missing.

Is Now Open!

The last few months have been challenging for all of us. We have missed seeing you, chatting with you, sharing stories with you and laughing with you. We are SO excited to finally be able to invite you back to our office!

As you already know, Amin Salvi Dental does not cut corners on safety and technology. We have always prided ourselves in exceeding the recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for infection control measures. During this closure, we decided to go above and beyond that by adding further safety measures, which have been outlined below. The comfort and safety of our patients, of our team members, and of our own families remain our top priority.

  • All essential paperwork (including a COVID-19 screening form) along with financial agreements are to be done prior to your appointment. We will be texting and emailing the links for the forms to be filled out at home or on your mobile device. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or feel ill, please reschedule your appointment and call your physician.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please wait in the car and text or call the office. We will inform you when to enter the office so we can maintain social distancing protocols
  • When entering the office, it is mandatory to wear a mask or face covering. Although county guidelines are not as strict, we maintain this requirement for the safety of everyone. Due to a worldwide shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) we cannot provide masks. Should you require one, we will charge you $1 for the mask.
  • Patients must arrive to their appointment alone without family/friends. A single guardian will be allowed for minors, elderly and those with special needs or requirements.
  • We will be taking your temperature when arriving to our office and recording this in your records.

Here are a few additional things we are doing to keep everyone safe and healthy:

  • We have installed air purification systems in the main operatories
  • We have installed sneeze guards at the check-in and check-out areas. We request that when you are required to talk to the front desk administration, you stand behind those.
  • Before appointments, we will use a medical peroxide pre-rinse which has been proven to help kill virus particles

We will have new scheduling guidelines

You will be hearing from us shortly as we are rescheduling routine hygiene and treatment for everyone. As you can imagine, we have a large backlog of cancelled appointments so we appreciate your patience through this process.

If you have any immediate concerns, we request not to call the office but text us at the office number or email us at office.corona@aminsalvidental.com.

Due to the new protocols for physical distancing in the office, we may have limited availability of appointments. Due to this we require a minimum 48 hour notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment to avoid a cancellation fee. This allows other patients, who have been waiting, to be seen. Please be courteous to others.

For many procedures we will also be requiring a reservation fee in advance. This fee will be applied to your deductible or co-pay for the treatment and is not an additional fee of any kind.

We look forward to seeing all of you and catching up on the activities you have been doing to keep busy during this downtime!
