Although patients may request dental implants weeks, months or years after a tooth has been lost, those that require a tooth extraction may be candidates for same-day dental implant surgery.
MONROEVILLE, Pa. (PRWEB) August 14, 2019
Dr. Carl Medgaus and Dr. Maelys Aguila, of Medgaus Dental Group, welcome new and existing patients in Monroeville, PA to receive dental implants, with or without a referral. Tooth loss can cause harmful effects on patients’ oral health, overall health, self-confidence and facial aesthetics. Drs. Medgaus and Aguila understand these legitimate symptoms which is why they are dedicated to offering long-term tooth replacement solutions, dental implants. Over the past few decades, dental implants have risen to become the most trusted method to recover the appearance and function of lost or extracted teeth. When properly placed by a skilled dentist, implants can restore complete function and aesthetics for decades.
Dental implants are made of three parts: titanium posts that are placed in the bone, a natural-looking crown and an abutment that connects the two together. After placement, the implant post is given time to heal. During this time, the post fuses with the surrounding bone, providing a stable anchor for an abutment and customized dental crown. With proper care such as regular brushing and routine hygiene visits, dental implants can restore complete health for decades.
Although patients may request dental implants weeks, months or years after a tooth has been lost, those that require a tooth extraction may be candidates for same-day dental implant surgery. If a tooth is decayed or damaged and needs to be extracted, it can be removed the same day an implant is placed. In some cases, this team may apply bone grafting material to ensure the success of the implant. In others, patients may even be able to restore the implant with a temporary restoration, so they avoid going a day without a complete smile.
If a patient does not qualify for same day dental implants, Dr. Medgaus and Dr. Aguila may preserve the tooth socket after an extraction by offering bone grafting treatment. After the bone grafting site has healed, patients usually qualify for successful placement of dental implants.
Dr. Medgaus offers IV sedation and local anesthetic to reduce the likelihood of pain or discomfort during any dental implant procedure. Those with missing teeth interested in finding out if they are good candidates for dental implants are invited to contact Medgaus Dental Group. The Monroeville office can be contacted by calling 412-373-0310. Patients are also welcome to call their Pittsburgh location at 412-563-6333.
