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

Dental implants themselves are titanium posts which are inserted into the jaw bone where teeth are missing. These titanium anchors act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jaw bone by Dr. Schelkun, Dr. Kienle and Dr. Steinkeler, your oral and maxillofacial surgeons. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong, permanent foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts are then attached to the implant which extends up through the gum tissue. These posts provide stable anchors for prosthetic replacement teeth, caps or crowns placed by your primary dentist. Dental implants are a team process. The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon performs the surgical phase, placing the dental implants into the bone. Then your primary dentist does the dental phase placing the teeth on top of the implants.

Dental implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Current state of the art techniques allow almost anyone who is missing a tooth to be a candidate for dental implants. Drs. Schelkun, Kienle and Steinkeler have the experience and knowledge to provide anyone with the opportunity to have dental implants. Drs. Schelkun, Kienle and Steinkeler have over 50 years of combined experience reconstructing patients with dental implants. However, certain patients (such as smokers and head and neck cancer and radiation patients) can have an increased incidence of implant difficulties and failures. Special procedures may be necessary when Drs. Schelkun, Kienle and Steinkeler treat these patients.

Drs. Schelkun, Kienle and Steinkeler work directly with you and your primary dentist to develop a personalized dental implant treatment plan. They use many different dental implant systems to accommodate a multitude of treatment plans or preferences. These dental implant systems include Straumann, Biomet 3i, Zimmer, Nobel and Keystone. Other systems can also be utilized depending on the patient and dentist preference.

I had an implant done by Dr. Schelkun in 1999. It went great,so now I needed another one and it was a no brainer to return to this practice. I had my surgery 6 days ago and all is well. I did not need any pain medication, no swelling or bleeding. GREAT JOB!!

It was a good experience, even for me, I am afraid of any dental procedure. My first visit was for an extraction and my second visit was for my implant. The Doctor and the entire staff that works in the office are amazing. I will recommend the visit of this office for dental procedures to my friends and family for sure.
