Laurie a patient of Dr. Castro since 2009 states:
“I needed this procedure because in my family both sides had dental problems, gum problems and I think, just genetics. So I decided to go with dental implants rather than trying other options, because it was the longest term lasting fix. So I would not have broken bridges, crowns or anything like that”
Recover your missing tooth with Dental Implants
Undoubtedly Dr. Castro is the Top Dentist and a true gentleman. Dr. Castro understands the problems from the core and treats a whole mouth to provide long lasting results not just one tooth. He has provided me with the smile that I can be proud of and now I project myself comfortably and confidently. Thank you!
Advantages of dental implants
If you are concerned about the dental implant surgery or bone graft surgery then you are interested in knowing this: the failure rateof dental implants is very low, in some instances as low as 3%, meaning that out of 100 implants, 97 are successful. In many situations, the size of the wound to access the site can be reduced significantly, so that the postoperative recovery is very fast and the usual symptoms are mild to none soreness of the area without swelling. Some cases can use the same wound left after tooth extraction for the implant placement.
Dental implant options
Every case is different and there is not a “cookie-cutter” like solution. After collecting the proper diagnostic information, our team of SmileSpecialists at our Dental implant Center will seat with you to discuss all the possible options and solve the questions you may have. Here are some of the most common scenarios:
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
Although the majority of patients are good candidates, we will review your medical and dental history in detail to determine if there are some considerations before an implant placement.
There are few medical conditions that pose a relative contraindication and fewer that pose an absolute contraindication for implant surgery. We will discuss with your medical team what modifications could be done to improve your condition and to prepare you for implant surgery.
Regarding your dental history it is very common to findjawbone atrophies (poor amounts of alveolar bone remaining), which are treatable with a bone graft to prepare a site to receive the implants. A Cone Beam Computerized Tomographic scan (CBCT Scan) is required for proper bone evaluation, implant therapy planning and surgical placement. You do not have to travel elsewhere as we take the scan at our Dental Implant Center in Georgia Prosthodontics – Smile Specialists.
Cost of Dental implants
Dental implants are in the long run a better investment. The cost of a single implant with its crown is comparable to the cost of a conventional three-unit bridge.
In the case of multiple missing teeth, the fact that dental implants protect from bone resorption saves later fees associated to fabrication of dentures to be replaced on average every five years and possible bone grafts.
Our team will work with you to help you maximize your insurance benefits, if any and will discuss a payment plan customized for your treatment needs.
What to expect after implant surgery?
Generally speaking an implant surgery will not require you to take a day off work and you can resume your normal activities almost immediately.Usually you will be able to drive after the procedure.
Most of the times a surgery for a single implant lasts less than one hour, it is done under local anesthesia and will cause mild or no postoperative pain or swelling. Numbness associated to anesthetics should disappear around 2 or 3 hours after. Even when an extraction is done and an immediate placement is done, our patients recover relatively soon.
Bone graft procedures may cause mild swelling and require you to comply with the antibiotic regime, anti-inflammatory and analgesic medications prescribed.
A special diet could be recommended in some cases to avoid excessive load over the treated area.
