Dental Implants

Description

Dr. Azari discusses dental implants and implant candidacy. A dental implant is a screw that is inserted into the jaw and replaces missing tooth roots. These prosthetic tooth roots support restorations such as crowns, bridges, and dentures to restore a patient's oral function.

1 00:00:05.414 --> 00:00:07.357 Dental implants are screws 2 00:00:07.500 --> 00:00:11.403 that go into the jaw to help replace roots, 3 00:00:11.786 --> 00:00:14.186 to then be able to support crowns 4 00:00:14.393 --> 00:00:20.429 or bridges or different kinds of processes such as dentures or partial dentures, 5 00:00:20.430 --> 00:00:24.900 so people can feel confident about using their teeth the way they once did. 6 00:00:25.043 --> 00:00:27.329 The truth is, any dentist can do it. 7 00:00:27.443 --> 00:00:30.328 We're lucky enough to have a board-certified periodontist 8 00:00:30.329 --> 00:00:33.857 who does that for us in terms of placing the implants, 9 00:00:33.858 --> 00:00:36.086 and then we are able to restore the implants 10 00:00:36.271 --> 00:00:39.357 with myself, other dentists, 11 00:00:39.358 --> 00:00:44.714 to be able to give patients what they need to replace their missing teeth structure. 12 00:00:44.914 --> 00:00:46.299 Anybody is a good candidate. 13 00:00:46.300 --> 00:00:48.600 I mean, you want to wait till you're a certain age 14 00:00:48.601 --> 00:00:50.000 till your jog rose? 15 00:00:50.086 --> 00:00:53.970 But once that happens and people lose teeth, 16 00:00:53.971 --> 00:00:55.343 you're a good candidate. 17 00:00:55.600 --> 00:00:58.929 If you have enough bone to support that implant, 18 00:00:58.930 --> 00:01:00.814 then it makes sense to place implants. 19 00:01:00.815 --> 00:01:06.029 If not, we talk about other ways to approach putting teeth in place. 20 00:01:06.030 --> 00:01:11.843 But in this stage of the game, proper standard of care would be implants, 21 00:01:11.844 --> 00:01:14.271 and that's what we strive to do for each and every patient. 22 00:01:14.272 --> 00:01:16.286 These days, recovery is very short. 23 00:01:16.287 --> 00:01:20.328 Doing implants is very simple surgery. 24 00:01:20.329 --> 00:01:24.029 Pretty much within the first day or two, with the help of medication, 25 00:01:24.386 --> 00:01:27.329 things are very comfortable for the patient. 26 00:01:27.770 --> 00:01:31.329 The benefits are having teeth that they're going to have 27 00:01:31.343 --> 00:01:32.457 for the rest of their lives, 28 00:01:32.458 --> 00:01:34.599 and they're going to be able to utilize those teeth 29 00:01:34.600 --> 00:01:38.000 like they once did or once hoped to do. 30 00:01:38.014 --> 00:01:42.729 And they feel like they can really have the confidence to eat, and speak, 31 00:01:42.971 --> 00:01:46.757 and use their teeth functionally like they want.
