Technology and surgical skill minimize implant dentistry complications for Wake Forest NC patients
Like many dental procedures, implants are technique-specific. For this reason, Supremia Dentistry partners with one of the country are leading oral surgeons. While the long-term success rates of these preferred tooth replacements exceed 90 percent, many factors influence outcomes.
One of those factors includes the development of what’s called “peri-implantitis.” While it’s true the implant-supported tooth doesn’t decay like a natural tooth, it is still susceptible to a destructive type of inflammation to the tissues surrounding the implant. This can destroy the bone that eventually fuses to the implant.
In turn, it’s important to keep up with good oral hygiene as you typically would with natural teeth. By properly and consistently brushing and flossing, you prevent the build-up of the bacteria that produces inflammation around the implant.
Another factor that influences the success of your implant procedure is the skill of the surgeon who places this titanium tooth root. Since Supremia Dentistry teams up with one of the country’s best, you can rest easier knowing the implant will be fitted to the underlying bone precisely and safely.
Over the course of the coming months, the implant and bone will fuse together in a process known as “osseointegration.” You can’t have a successful dental implant-supported tooth without the connection of the implant to underlying bone. This provides a foundation for the rest of the tooth, its connector piece (or “abutment”), and the dental crown or tooth structure above the gum line.
Another factor that distinguishes Supremia Dentistry from other practices is the use of all things digital to design and make the last part of the implant-supported tooth: the dental crown. Dr. Edmond Suh has significant experience creating and making these restorations onsite. You can rest assured that your new tooth will function and look like a natural tooth down to how the light reflects off the porcelain.
Good outcomes are the result of a partnership between the patient and Dr. Edmond Suh. He and his team want to assure you benefit from implant dentistry in Wake Forest NC just as many millions of other patients have worldwide. Call 919-561-6199 to schedule an appointment.
