Why Dental Implants Need Expert Socket Preparation To Bring You A Successful Smile

For people with missing teeth, achieving a beautiful smile is something that can feel more like a distant memory than an upcoming reality. After all, when you're left without the primary pieces for an earnest grin, you're left giving a narrow frown instead!

At Fresno Dental Implant Center, you'll find that a rejuvenated smile is still a possibility for your broken mouth, as Alexander Pritsky, DMD, and his crew of helpful periodontal specialists make it their mission to bring your mouth all the integral pieces it needs to start showing off that golden grin your friends and family have missed seeing for too long already!

The primary way Dr. Pritsky and his dental assistants bring patients restored smiles is with dental implants, which are small titanium posts placed in your jaw that serve as worthy replacements for your natural tooth roots. Once the implant has been fully integrated with your underlying jawbone, a dental crown is placed on top, completing an artificial tooth that looks just like your natural ones.

But before you have dental implants placed in your mouth, it's important that the sockets they're being placed in have been properly prepared to minimize the risk of periodontal complications, such as infection or a weak implant attachment. Sometimes this requires bone grafts, which are placed in the existing socket to preserve its full integrity. By creating a strong foundation to hold the implant in the jaw, we lay the groundwork for implantation success.
