Q. What improvements have been made in dental implants?
A. The base implant material (titanium) has been consistent over the past 25 years because the success rate is 98%. The advances are in computer-aided guidance systems and designs. Before we touch the patient, we have already done the implant surgery on the computer. Teeth are designed and, in some instances, made prior to surgery. We use these advanced techniques to improve the surgical experience and diminish the pitfalls of the surgery. We also offer ceramic implants for those patients allergic to titanium.
Q. How does your office differ from other practices?
A. As a solo practitioner, I offer personalized care that seems to be lacking in some of the larger, corporate-owned practices. When patients come to see me, I will be the only one who examines them, designs treatment plans, and performs the surgery and follow-up care. Patients respond to this level of care, and I have seen several generations of many families due to this practice model.
