Phoenix Dental Implants

Are you a candidate for dental implants? Even though implant dentistry is a highly specialized field, it is not formally recognized as a dental specialty. Almost any general dentist can place an implant without any training at all. However, patients should do their research to find out what kind dentist to choose and how much training the dentist has had. You can be confident in choosing Dr. David Kloss. He has had extensive training and education in implantology and has successfully placed over 1,000 dental implants in the course of 10 years.

What do Dental Implants Involve?

The process of providing an implant comes in two parts. The first part is the surgical application and installation of a titanium root in the jaw bone. Depending on the patient’s condition, bone grafting may be needed to build up mass and material to hold the titanium root firmly. This is a common situation where periodontal disease causes the original tooth loss and surrounding bone damage. The goal is for osseointegration to occur, where the titanium root bonds with the jaw bone. This increases strength dramatically and makes the implant root durable. It also stops bone shrinkage, another common issue with a lost tooth and gap.

Once fully healed, the second step occurs, and Dr. Kloss applies a crown to the tooth root. The porcelain nature of the crown matches existing teeth, and the implant is hard to notice unless one is looking for it.
