When it comes to restoring missing teeth, Washington area patients have long settled for treatment with dentures or dental bridges. But that’s exactly what they’ve been doing: settling. Upon further research, the thing we’ve noticed is that many patients simply aren’t aware that there is a better way.
Dental implants are a quickly rising dental industry. We now have entire organizations created to instruct and certify any dentists who have the will and desire to learn how to do it properly. No longer is this an experimental treatment. Implants now have a high success rate and can provide longer lasting and more satisfying results.
For our grandparents, and even our parents for some of us, dentures and dental bridges were the only options for replacing missing teeth. I personally remember hearing from my grandfather how uncomfortable he found his dentures, and that was on days when he didn’t just leave them out.
Because dental implants are placed directly in your jawbone, they work and feel just like natural teeth. These artificial tooth roots fuse to your jawbone, allowing them to perfectly replicate your natural tooth roots.
It is important that you consider dental implants immediately after losing a tooth, as the treatment has the highest chances of success when performed closer to the date of the tooth’s loss. As the jawbone begins to deplete after a tooth is lost, having an implant placed early after losing a tooth can ensure that no additional treatment is needed to address that bone loss.
Dr. Abron has been involved with dental implants since his school days. While involved in an oral surgery residency at Columbia University, he placed over 250 implants over the course of his three years at the school. This earned him the renown required to be recognized as one of America’s Top Dentists in 2007 by Consumer’s Research Council of America.
What makes Dr. Abron a great choice is the fact that he can provide all steps required by the dental implant process. From your original consultation to your implant’s placement and restoration, Dr. Abron will be with you every step of the way. Dr. Abron can also provide jawbone related treatments, a part of the implant process that is often outsourced by other dentists.
