The invention of a dental implant was truly revolutionary and it transformed the way how restorations function. The fact that an external body can be inserted into the jawbone such that it integrates with the body, speaks much for the success of the restoration so far in the field of restorative care. Its application as an artificial tooth root has widened the boundaries of possibilities for prosthodontists and dentists. New materials and technology are developed in the field of implant dentistry to reduce the healing period and make the restoration better. The success rate of dental implant surgery is pretty good. At our office, we have used dental implants to create healthy smiles for our patients and improve their oral health. Our dentist is specially trained in the field of implant dentistry and has performed several surgeries in our office. Contact our team to learn more about our dental implant restoration process at Sacramento office.
The implant is made of metal or zirconium. It is inserted in the supporting jawbone through a surgical procedure. The bone tissues form a bond with the implant and give it higher stability. As a result, the implant is capable of withstanding bite load while keeping the restoration in place. This is one of the major advantages of implants, especially when it comes to replacing multiple teeth.
In a tooth bridge, dental implants can be used to replace more than one tooth. There can be two implants that support a bridge that consists of two anchoring crowns and one or more false teeth. Our dentist checks the status of the jawbone and studies the bite load and the load-carrying ability of the implants before recommending the surgery. This is a permanent and fixed restoration which can enhance the chewing and biting functions greatly.
Implants can also support a complete row of teeth. In this case, there are about 4 implants which are strategically inserted into the jawbone. The idea is to ensure that the implants evenly bear the bite load. They mechanism that holds the denture in place ensures the stability of the restoration and gives full freedom to patients to eat their favorite food. This type of restoration is a lot better than traditional restorations which are supported by gums and held in place by adhesives.
A dental implant that replaces a single tooth functions as good as a natural tooth root. The implanted tooth crown has high chewing efficiency and the artificial root can last as many as 2 to 3 decades. It is an amazing restoration option since there is no necessity to prepare the surrounding teeth as the case is with the dental bridge. The implant also protects the jawbone from shrinking.
Beautiful office, friendly staff, terrific dental care.by Trevor Derrett
Had a great visit today and got to know the people that work there. They made me feel comfortable as the change of ownership is taking place.by Bonnie Schrader
I am so impressed with the entire experience. From the friendly reminders, to entering the office, and especially the dentist! My previous dentist Stephen C Ott, DDS, was incredible. I had the benefits of his gift since 1971. I was worried about finding a new dentist. However, I was blessed to have Dr. Ott recommend his dentist: Dr. Lillian Stojic. I recommend her to all!!!by John Murphy III
I've been seeing dr stojic since I moved to town 18 years ago, my whole family has transitioned over there and I love the whole team! Keep up the great work!by Carrie Carsell
Dr. Lilliana and her staff make getting teeth cleaned and a cavity filled as good an experience as possible. They get the job done with minimal pain and discomfort.by Age Advantage S.
I just had a visit to Dr. Stojic's office. My ten year old daughter had an infected tooth that had to be extracted. She was so nervous and scared at the possibility of an extraction. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by her office manager and then by her equally kind assistant who brought us back to her room...by Kristi L.
Dr. Lilliana and her staff are not only effective and efficient, but they also remove my anxiety. When I had to have a root canal, I was nervous about the pain. I was given the choice of Nitrous oxide gas and that calmed me.by Gail M.
Dr. Stojic saw two of my children. The youngest was so comforted by her easygoing and confident demeanor that he was the quietest and most still 4 year old I've seen in a dentist chair! Our older son was very afraid of the dentist and has been to a couple other dentists who were unable to treat him because of his scared behavior. Dr. Stojic was very patient and helped him understand what she was doing at every step, which calmed him down so she was able to fill his cavities and even extract a tooth. We were thoroughly impressed with Dr. Stojic and her office and staff.by Brittani B.
