The Keys to Success in Implant Dentistry
At Dr. Narcisi’s cosmetic dentistry practice in Pittsburgh, dental implant success rates are particularly high for several reasons. First and foremost, Dr. Narcisi carefully evaluates the mouth of each patient to make sure that he or she is a suitable candidate for dental implants. In order to be a suitable candidate, a patient must have sufficient jaw bone density to support the titanium implant posts. This is essential because the dental implants actually fuse to the jaw bone, essentially becoming a part of the patient’s natural anatomy. Patients who do not have sufficient jaw bone density may still be able to receive dental implants if they first undergo a bone grafting procedure.
Suitable candidates must also be in generally good health and, aside from the missing tooth or teeth, good oral health. Patients with advanced periodontal disease will have to have that issue dealt with before they can undergo implant dentistry.
Dr. Narcisi’s success rates are also bolstered by the fact that he works with only the finest oral surgeons in the area. Careful planning is essential to a successful outcome; strategic placement of an implant is necessary to ensure that it will be properly supported by the jaw and will anchor the replacement tooth so that the bite is strong and properly aligned. The oral surgeons we work with use the most advanced technology available in order to locate the ideal site for placement with outstanding precision.
As long as patients follow post-operative instructions exactly, complications are rare, and implant rejection is extremely unlikely.
