Dr. Jonathan Germany, founder of Germany Dental in Brandon, Mississippi, has been changing the lives of many patients through dental implant procedures. A recent international clinical study shows a 98.1% 3-year implant-survival rate (2013, August 8). Medical News Today. See study here.
“Many patients fear the longevity of their dental implants. Mainly, their fear is bone loss around the implant. This study provides pertinent information to boost the confidence in patients receiving a dental implant procedure,” Dr. Germany comments. The study was a randomized controlled clinical trial (RCT) that was conducted on about 100 patients. Testing both submerged (gum tissue covered implant) and transmucosal (part of the implant is exposed) implants yielded only one dental implant lost over a three-year period. Thus, a 98.1% implant survival rate exists. Brandon dental practice Germany Dental offers Thommen Medical implants to patients needing a permanent solution to tooth loss.
Dental implants provided by Dr. Germany are a permanent solution to tooth loss incurred by accident, injury or disease. Dr. Germany says, “If a tooth is lost, it’s good for a patient to have it replaced not only for cosmetic reasons, but for good oral health. Teeth shift when there’s one single tooth missing, making the mouth susceptible to bacteria and TMJ issues due to misalignment.” When a tooth needs replacement, visiting a dentist is important to find out a patient’s best option of replacement.
A dental implant is a permanent option for tooth replacement. It can be compared to a screw being placed in the jawbone where the gums are vacant of a tooth. A secure crown will then be placed, even having the ability to lock in loose dentures. Typically, if a jawbone rejects an implant, it will do so within the first six months after the procedure. Obtaining dental implants happens between two appointments with Brandon cosmetic dentist Dr. Germany – one to place the implant in the jawbone, and the other to add the permanent crown. After the placement of the final crown, a patient can begin eating and functioning naturally.
