Because dental implants are so versatile they cross over into many different specialties. Often times, a periodontist, oral surgeon or even highly skilled and trained general dentists will place the dental implant. After healing, another dentist, typically a general dentist and sometimes a prosthodontist will restore the dental implant and provide the tooth or teeth. This involves lots of coordination between dentists, their staff, the dental insurance companies and most importantly the patient.
Dr. Taler at Advanced Family Dentistry is one of the few highly trained and skilled implant dentists who focuses his practice on both the surgical and prosthetic portions of dental implants. Whether it be a single tooth that broke off and needs to be replaced with a SAME DAY DENTAL IMPLANTS, or multiple teeth that need Hybrid Dentures or fixed dental implant bridges. Dr. Taler and his team will take you step by step through the entire process. There is no confusion with multiple dentists and insurance benefits and it is far more convenient for patients. His team is always up front about dental implant costs and DENTAL IMPLANT FINANCING options to make treatment more affordable.
When a dental implant is placed into the bone, the dental implant needs time to heal before a permanent abutment and crown (Tooth) can be placed upon it. This does not mean you need to go without teeth! Because Dr. Taler is trained in multiple facets of dentistry he is able to find unique solutions so that every patient can leave with a tooth/teeth. One of the most idea techniques for replacing these teeth is a procedure known as Teeth in a Day. This procedure allows the patient to walk in with broken down or even no teeth at all and leave that day with a brand new set of teeth. The process involves advanced technology such as 3-D imaging CBCT and intense skill and training as well as the right dental implant and dental lab team. It is a collaborative effort and the results are outstanding.
All on 4 is a process in which all of the teeth for the upper or lower jaw are supported by 4 implants. This helps decrease costs and also allows patients who would normally require extensive bone grafting and sinus lifts to receive ideal treatment without excessive surgeries. The key to this success is the angulation of the distal or back implants. This allows the surgeon to place longer implants and avoid critical anatomy. Each of the 4 implants is then linked together and thus support each other. This increases the strength of the prosthesis and allows patients to have brand new teeth the day of surgery.
