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. Read more about Dr. David Kloss.
What are Dental Implants?
There are two phases involved in the dental implant procedure. The first appointment is the surgical placement of the titanium tooth root into the bone. During this phase it is also possible that bone grafting may be needed to help support the implant especially if the original tooth was lost to periodontal disease. During the healing phase, osseointegration takes place. This is when the titanium root fuses directly to the bone offering strength and durability which prevents the jawbone from shrinking.
When the area is completely healed Dr. Kloss will place a porcelain crown on the tooth root to blend in beautifully with your other teeth.
