Restoring The Missing Tooth With Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth, which our dentist Dr. Lilliana Stojic may suggest it if a permanent tooth fell out from a facial injury or was taken out because of poor oral hygiene. Implants are quite natural-looking and can act as support for dentures. once you have an implant in your jaw socket, you may need to have more surgery in the future so that the implant stays in place. talk to our implant dentist Dr. Lilliana Stojic, a dentist in Sacramento about the pros and cons of this treatment option.

Restoring The Missing Tooth With Dental Implants

To get a dental implant done, one of the important criteria is to have healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant.

What happens after your tooth has been removed?

Our Implant Dentist will place an anchor and post in your jawbone. This anchor acts as a tooth root and is made from metals such as titanium as it easily integrates with your jaw. The post extends out of the anchor. Your new tooth will be attached to this post. It takes 3 to 6 months for the jawbone to grow around the anchor and hold it firmly in its place.You may experience some swelling or tenderness or even both for a couple of days post surgery, our dentist may recommend pain killer medicine. We will also suggests that you eat only soft foods for a certain period of time post-surgery. Once you have an implant, it stays in and you need not remove it for cleaning.

What you need to do after dental Implant Surgery:

Oral hygiene is important for the longevity of dental implants. special attention should be given to oral hygiene after surgery. however, it is important you follow regular oral care routines that you would follow for your natural teeth such as to brush and floss. if proper oral hygiene is ignored, bacteria may build up on implants, you can end up with gum disease and bone loss.

Follow these tips to keep your dental implants functional for long:

Regular Brushing

After surgery patient should brush their teeth at least twice a day. It will ensure that the growth of bacteria is prevented and your teeth stay protected from tooth decay and other oral diseases.

Daily Flossing

Flossing should become a part of your daily oral hygiene routine. Flossing will remove food debris from between the teeth and implants. It prevents the growth of harmful bacteria and checks the development of tooth decay and gum disease.

Regular Dental Appointments

It is very important to have the dental implants check up on regular basis. regular dental examinations ensure that our dentist knows how your implants are developing and give you suggestions as to how to avoid more serious problems. it will also help to spot any problems and deal with them early.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Regular teeth cleaning by a professional is also essential for teeth and gum health. Ensure that your teeth are professionally cleaned 4 times a year during the first year after the implant placement. We recommend quarterly cleaning intervals initially to help you establish habits that keep the soft tissues healthy.

Patient Testimonials

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.
