During your dental surgery procedure, we will place an artificial tooth root into your jaw in order to hold your replacement tooth. Generally, there are two kinds of dental implants. The most common type is called Endoseal, in which the implant is positioned in the bone. Our specialists utilize a variety of cylinders, blades, or screws that are surgically placed directly into the jawbone. Each implant can hold one or more teeth.
Subperiosteal implants are situated on top of the jaw rather than directly into the jawbone. Candidates for this type of procedure usually have minimal bone height and wear conventional dentures.
At Dr. Claudia A. Maitland, DDS LLC., we utilize a cutting-edge method called sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry uses Triazolam, a medicine that helps you relax while undergoing dental procedures. It consists of a small blue pill that you take about an hour before your visit to our office. The drug has virtually no side effects or negative interactions with other medications you may be taking. Dental sedation allows you to comfortably receive everything from a routine cleaning to complex treatments.
After you have received your dental implant, we encourage you to continue exercising conscientious oral care and schedule regular dental visits. Your implants will be just like brand new teeth, and they will require the same regular care. Reach out to Dr. Claudia A. Maitland, DDS LLC. today.
