Dr. Nguyen on Benefits of Implants

These are roots that are artificial that are placed in the gums. They are ideal for those who have teeth that are missing or teeth that are damaged to the point where they need to be pulled. Titanium is used, and the implants look like small screws or cylinders.

The overall price of the implants will depend on how many you have done at one time. It will also depend on the type of procedure. However, we are happy to work with you via our flexible payment options.

Some companies will if it's medically necessary, but you will need to contact the provider in order to find out before you decide on getting the implants.

Dental implants are safe. However, some people who smoke or have immune issues might not be qualified to receive implants due to the risk of infection that could occur.

As long as you take care of the implants after they are placed, then you will see results. The implants can help give structure back to the mouth, and you will have a smile that you enjoy seeing.

A small cylinder, or screw, is placed in the jaw after a drill is used to make a small hole in the gum where the tooth is to be placed. Gum tissue is placed over the screw, and after the healing process of about six months, a replacement tooth is placed where the screw is located.

There could be some discomfort during and after the procedure. Sedation procedures can be put in place so that you are comfortable. Prescription medications can be prescribed to help with any pain that might be felt.

It takes about six months for the gums to heal after the implants are placed, and it will take about two months after the teeth are placed for complete healing.

Most implants will last for about 40 years or more as long as you take care of the teeth and gums.

Implants can be placed as soon as the bone in the jaw is completely grown.

Dr. Borromeo Shares His Thoughts

I’ve been practicing for twenty-six years and I’ve been referring to Dr. Nguyen for about fifteen years. I refer my patients to Dr. Nguyen because of these three things. First is their experience; The experience that they have with his technology and what he does. There is also that enjoyment factor where he’s got that personality where he keeps you at ease. The last thing would be the education because he educates my patient and he tells them what to do when he’s done with the treatment.
