What are dental implants?

Dental Implants Presentation

To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.

Dental Implants Presentation

A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw.

The difference is that the implant is made of titanium — the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints. When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, the surgeon first replaces the root with a small dental implant.

Time is allowed for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment.

In many cases a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.

a smiling and relaxed older man

“Don’t be afraid to Smile.”

For years I’d felt like a part of my body was missing — because my teeth were. My dentist told me that dental implants would make me feel and look a lot better. OK, I said. Now, I’m thrilled. I can smile, eat anything, and enjoy a good laugh with my friends.

Surgical Advances in Dental Implants

Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Young is able to place single-stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth extraction – further minimizing your number of surgical procedures.

Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Dr. Young performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary. The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

Patient Review by Lorolie W

I had been to another oral surgeon who my dentist called while I was at her office. She referred me to a doctor in same town . I went there to have a tooth extracted knowing I would need an implant later. But I wasn’t thrilled with his mannerisms or the way the extraction went. So thankfully I looked on the internet and read Dr. Young’s website. And haven’t been happier with the whole experience. Very courteous to me and easy to speak with. Implant done. Dr. Young called me night of the implant which surprised me. Who does that? I have already recommended to a friend and will continue to recommend his practice to all who are looking for a competent doctor and team.

Patient Review by Meg H

Everyone was very kind and professional, and put me at ease even though I can be kind of nervous. Medically, everything went very well and Dr Young did a great job answering my questions. He was very responsive and called me back very quickly when I had a question after my initial surgery. I also very much appreciated the option to finance the implant, and appreciated that the total cost was explained in full up front; I never got surprised by additional costs or fees. I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who needs a dental implant.

Patient Review by Carole G

I have never known a surgeon with more expertise as Dr. Young. I had a very bad experience with another so needless to say I was petrified of needing more dental surgery. From my very first visit to my surprise, I cannot say enough about Dr. Young and his staff. The care and compassion I received was so much more than I ever expected. There is simply no one better. Thank you

Patient Review by Susan T

Let me start by saying that I am a big baby when it comes to dental work. Dr. Young and his assistant (I wish I knew her name) are both very understanding and caring. My dental implant went very smoothly; a laser was used for the surgery which means no blood, no stitches. I had minimal pain - took Tylenol once. I shouldn't have stressed over this.

Patient Review by Dr. D. Paul Lawrence

Dr. Young has perfriormed a dental implant. I was not going to have it until I met with him. He eased me with his professionalism and explained with utmost simplicity and sincerity everything I needed to know. The procedure was terrific and I drove home praising God for a wonderful man of God who is talented to do all that he does as a gifted surgeon. I was surprised to receive a call from him that evening to make sure I was doing well. Yes, he has phenomenal interpersonal skills. Not onl y do I give him a five star rating but also his staff aswell. Prior to this, Dr. Young extracted a tooth in a superb manner. Profoundest thanks to him and everyone. I would recommend him to anyone who needs him for a memorable experience and grateful appreciation. Best of God's greatest blessings! Dr. Paul Lawrence.

Patient Review by Thomas L.

I am a 60 year old man who grew up in the 50s, and 60s when having any work done on you mouth was painful, yesterday Dr. Steven Young did my first dental in plant. I can honestly say it was a good experience, I suffered no pain and, him and his staff made me very comfortable. Dr. Young has done other work for in the past and he came highly recommended by Dr. Barry. I can not say enough good things about Dr. Young and his staff, but I do know my next oral surgery will hopefully be done be him.
