Dr. Keith Chertok, Periodontist in Berkeley, CA, Makes Same-Day Dental Implants Possible for More Patients

This new system cuts out five months of healing time for patients, significantly improving the patient experience and offering lasting results.

An early adopter of cutting-edge techniques and technology, Dr. Keith Chertok now offers the new BLX immediate dental implant system by Straumann®. Combining the expertise of a periodontist with this modern technology, patients in and around Berkeley, CA are able to have a tooth extracted and a dental implant placed in the same visit. This decreases treatment time and significantly shortens the time without a complete, functional, and healthy smile.

Straumann is one of the leading dental implant manufacturers in the world. Their new BLX implant system opens the door for more patients to receive immediate dental implants and restore their smiles in just one day.

Dental implants are the only long-term tooth replacement solution that restores jawbone health, nearly 100 percent oral function, as well as natural-looking aesthetics. Traditionally, a tooth is extracted leaving a large hole or socket in the jawbone where the tooth root used to be. In order to restore a firm and healthy foundation, this area must be rebuilt by filling it with bone grafting material. Five or more months are typically required for the treatment site to heal before a dental implant can be successfully placed.

However, with revolutionary dental implant posts designed by Straumann, dental implant specialists and periodontists like Dr. Chertok are able to qualify even more patients for immediate solutions. This technology eliminates the need for a healing period by creating a dental implant that engages with the bone in the socket immediately after the tooth is removed. In many cases, this also makes immediate load dental implants possible, allowing patients to receive a temporary restoration and a complete smile the same day as their surgery.

Each dental implant uses technologies backed by long-term scientific evidence. Trusted by Dr. Chertok and other leaders in the field of Implantology, he is excited to implement this implant system into his practice. Dr. Chertok says, “This new system cuts out five months of healing time for patients, significantly improving the patient experience and offering lasting results.”
