Replace Missing Teeth in Antelope, CA:
Dental Implants by Michael Narodovich, DMD
Are you missing one or more teeth? Do you feel self-conscious when you smile or talk? Missing teeth not only affect your appearance but also your oral health. Fortunately, dental implants can help you restore your smile and improve your quality of life. At Sacramento Dental Medicine in Antelope, CA, Dr. Michael Narodovich provides comprehensive dental implant treatment to his patients.
Implant Placement by an Experienced Implant Dentist
In the past, general dentists used to refer patients to specialists to perform dental implant placement. However, at Sacramento Dental Medicine, Dr. Narodovich performs implant placement himself, allowing patients to receive all of their implant care in one location. This more convenient care benefits patients, as Dr. Narodovich knows the entire context behind their treatment plan. Moreover, Dr. Narodovich uses precise CBCT or 3D imaging to determine the optimal position for the implant and ensure the best results. By keeping all parts of the treatment in the office, Dr. Narodovich can fully meet his patients' diverse needs, from choosing a standard or mini implant to determining the number of implants required.
Preparatory Bone Grafting for Successful Implant Placement
To be successful, dental implants must fully integrate into the jaw. However, if you have lost a tooth, you may have also experienced a decrease in bone volume, which can make the jaw too weak to support the post. In such cases, Dr. Narodovich can perform preparatory bone grafting surgery to strengthen the jaw before placing dental implant posts. This procedure involves taking a small amount of bone from another part of your body or using synthetic bone material to augment the jawbone and create a solid foundation for the implant.
Customized Restoration for a Natural-Looking Smile
After placing the implant posts, Dr. Narodovich monitors your healing process and has your dental implant restoration fabricated. This prosthetic is designed to replace one or more missing teeth effectively and comfortably. To ensure a natural-looking smile, Dr. Narodovich uses zirconia, a white metal that mimics the appearance of healthy teeth and is more durable than other esthetic dental materials. At Sacramento Dental Medicine, you can choose from a range of restorations, including single-unit crowns, partials, hybrid dentures made of zirconia, or implant-supported overdentures, to replace any number of missing teeth.
