Oral surgery is safe, effective, and highly successful when it’s performed by a qualified and experienced dental professional. That’s why whether you are replacing one, multiple, or even all of your teeth with dental implants, you should count on us at Barats Family Dentistry. Implant placement is surgical, but you’ve no cause for concern because focused attention is given and gentle care applied in the procedure.
Our Albany oral surgery consists of putting a titanium post in your jaw, beneath the gum line. The purpose of this is to mimic the best qualities of a natural root. The reason your real teeth are so reliable when you chew your food is that they are anchored dependably. The post serves the same purpose. When it is put in, your jaw tissue immediately begins to grow around it. Over the course of a few months, the bone fuses with the post. It is essential that you don’t let just any dentist do such work. Our Albany oral surgery is delicate, and if it is not done with the right techniques and equipment, you could suffer undue discomfort or pain as a result. Once the fusion of the jaw and post is complete, the next step is to place an abutment that acts as further stability for the tooth yet to come. The final portion is the simplest part of all. Impressions are taken and used by the dental lab to make a crown that is tooth-colored. The crown is cemented to the post and held in with the assistance of the abutment. If multiple teeth are involved, the tooth portion is different, comprising either a bridge or denture that will then be supported by the posts.
