Dental Implant Surgery

            Dr. Mark Padolsky provides both the dental implant surgery to place implants and the dental implant restoration services that must be done after implants are placed. Dental implants can be used to replace one or all of a patient's teeth.  Patients visit our office to look good and to easily chew their food, not to have a surgery. This is why the dental restoration is extremely important and must be planned.

          During the dental implant surgery the dental implant is screwed into a special site prepared in the bone. This is done using local anesthesia and takes about a half hour to an hour per dental implant. During the procedure precise holes, called osteotomies, are prepared in the areas of the mouth where there is adequate bone to support dental implants. Dental implants that exactly match the osteotomies are next screwed all the way into the prepared spaces. The dental implants are next covered with gum tissue so that the dental implants can quietly integrate with the surrounding bone.      

          After the dental implant surgery we wait six to twelve months for a patient's bone to grow onto and around their new dental implants. At the end of this period the top of the dental implants are exposed and a post placed into them. An impression is taken of these posts and crowns or bridges are constructed at the dental laboratory. The final dental restoration is then placed in the dental implant patient's mouth the same way that a normal restoration is done.

          Unfortunately, most insurance companies do not cover dental implants so we have establishe d contacts with several dental implant financing companies so that patients desiring dental implant surgery and new teeth can get their needed care.
