Why Dental Implants?
are the most predictable and successful long-term solution to missing teeth.
- Alternatives to Bridges, Partials and Dentures
- Prevention of Bone Atrophy- a progressive shrinking of the jawbone which can affect jaw function and cause facial cosmetic changes
- Born without teeth
Dental Implant Process
STEP ONE: Surgical phase of implant placement
Dr. Siegel uses precise, gentle surgical techniques to place the implants into the jawbone for approximately four months, allowing bonding to bone. This helps ensure a strong, solid foundation for replacement teeth.
STEP TWO: Restorative Phase
Your general dentist or prosthodontist works closely with Dr. Siegel, creating and attaching your new tooth or teeth to the anchored implant(s) in your jaw.
As an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Dr. Siegel utilizes a team approach with your dentist and/or specialists which enhances the quality and long-term success of Dental Implant Surgery. MINIMAL PAIN & NO DOWNTIME
Dr. Siegel provides you with the options of local anesthetic, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia in order to minimize pain and/or anxiety. Patients resume most normal activities the same or next day.
