Implants

Before development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.

Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.

Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material like metal or ceramic.

Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place the implant in the mouth. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth.

Because implants require surgery, patients are administered anesthesia and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure.

Like any restoration, implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time.

    Truly amazing! I was hesitant to visit any dentist for several years after my braces were taken off because of a previous bad experience I had. First entering the office I was greeted warmly by very friendly staff. I knew I needed two root canals and several fillings done all of which I was not looking forward to. She had asked if we could just do one filling on my first visit which I had agreed to. The procedure went flawlessly. For those who are scared of needles (which was my worst fear), Dr. Wadhwa is extremely experienced in this field and knows how to make the pain almost nonexistent. It took some convincing but Dr. Wadhwa had relieved all of my concerns of going to the dentist. She is the only dentist I'll be visiting ever again for any routine or intricate procedures.

    I had stopped going to the dentist for the last few years because of a previous bad expierence. I decided to try Dr. Wadhwa and was very pleased. She is very friendly and understood mty hesitancy about going back to the dentist. She answered all my questions and asked to make sure I understood everything. I will have to come back for fillings but she explained the procedure and I feel much better about it. The staff up front is also very welcoming, they actually seemed interested with what I was talking about. I would highly suggest going to Dr. Wadhwa she is great!!
