Dental implants remain one of today’s most popular and trusted tooth replacement option with millions of Americans currently benefiting from the benefits of this advanced treatment method. Dental implants leverage titanium posts which actually fuse to the jawbone, creating an unmatched strength and resilience that can last a lifetime when cares for properly. Our team at the office of Dr. Jason Dopp specialize in this advanced tooth replacement method and are able to help patients choose the best possible implant-based solution for them and their restorative needs.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is very simply a metal post made of titanium that is placed in the jawbone of the tooth – titanium is chosen as this metal has the unique ability to fuse to the jawbone, creating an incredibly strong hold that protects the jawbone and makes for a stronger and healthier smile. A crown is then placed on top of this post which completes the implant, making for a reliable and permanent tooth-replacement method. Implants also help protect the jawbone from deterioration that occurs naturally with age.
The Advantages of Implant Dentistry
Compared to other methods of tooth replacement, implant dentistry offers a variety of benefits including strength, longevity, and convenience. A few of the advantages offered by implant dentistry include:
- Freedom of food and beverages choices as there are no dietary restrictions with dental implants. You’ll still be able to eat all of your favorite foods!
- Long-term strength and reliability thanks to the implant fusing to the jawbone.
- Correction of tooth misalignment.
- Natural-looking results that fully resemble natural teeth.
- Ease of maintenance in that dental implants simply require regular brushing and flossing to remain healthy.
- Dental implants are a long-term treatment solution that can last the rest of your life when properly maintained! Some implant patients may require occasional corrections due to aging or other factors – our office is capable of providing these corrections in-office to best serve our implant dentistry patients.
Replacing Teeth With Dental Implants
There are two steps to placing dental implants – the first phase of treatment is the implant procedure itself, and the second phase is adding the crowns to the top of the implant to complete the implant process. Our team at the office of Dr. Jason Dopp is able to provide patients with both of these treatment phases, helping patients fully replace teeth with one convenient treatment process. Our team can provide your implant dentistry from start to finish! Initially, we see dental implant patients for an initial consultation where we assess the patient’s jaw strength, existing oral health, as well as their overall candidacy for implant dentistry. We’ll discuss these findings with patients and then form an implant dentistry treatment plan and timeline based on their tooth replacement needs. We’ll use x-rays to look at your teeth and jawbone density and health, which gives our team a good idea of where the optimal areas of the mouth are for implant placement. Once it’s determined that a patient is a good candidate for implant dentistry, a procedure is given that places the implants themselves. Then, a healing process takes place where the implants themselves fuse to the jawbone, creating an incredibly strong and secure hold. Then, there is a second appointment where the top of the implants themself are accessed after the gum tissue has healed over the implant abutment, and then your final crowns are placed to complete the implant process.
A Versatile Tooth Replacement Solution
Dental implants are a highly versatile treatment solution that can be leveraged in a variety of treatment cases for different patients. Whether you’re missing a single tooth or an entire row of teeth, dental implants can be used in many different tooth replacement cases including:
- Single tooth replacements,
- Fixed or removable dentures,
- A full row of teeth being replaced by a bridge,
- Or entire tooth arches replaced with individual implants.
Different patients may require different types of implant dentistry – if you’re experiencing missing teeth, speak with our team at the office of Dr. Jason Dopp today to learn which tooth replacement methods using dental implants may be best for you!
Our team at the office of Dr. Jason Dopp specializes in advanced means of imaging that help us fully analyze a patient’s teeth and jaw to identify conditions as well as create specific treatment plans that best address a patient’s needs. We offer digital x-rays that come with two main benefits:
- Digital x-rays are a convenient and efficient imaging method that help patients spend less time having x-rays taken.
- This is a completely discomfort-free process that helps patients receive full and detailed images of their teeth and jaw that our team utilizes in order to best address patient needs.
Given that many patients are concerned over the radiation involved in traditional x-rays, it’s important to keep in mind that digital x-rays involve ninety-percent less radiation than traditional x-rays. This is vital for patients who are concerned over radiation from traditional x-rays given that x-rays are vital for proper patient care as these images allow our team to best look at patient’s tooth and jawbone structure. Some of the advantages that x-rays provide include:
- Detection of cavities and other oral health complications,
- Spotting signs of inflammation in the gums,
- Identifying early signs of gum disease and other complications,
- Determining candidacy for orthodontic treatment and other treatments
When transitioning between dental offices, patients can request for previous x-rays to be transferred to our office so we can best analyze your medical history and determine the best routes for treatment.
The Digital X-Ray Process
The imaging techniques used in our office minimize any exposure to radiation, which is a key benefit of digital imaging techniques, particularly to the chest and other vital areas. The American Dental Association has recommended that all dental patients receive x-rays and imaging to best help their dental team identify any complications with the teeth and jaw, and children should have x-rays taken at early ages to help identify signs of oral health complications. Our team at the office of Dr. Jason Dopp can help patients receive imaging as well as formulate the best possible plans for care!
Seeing Things From A New Perspective – Intraoral Cameras
The office of Dr. Jason Dopp is proud to offer advanced treatment methods to our patients to best protect their oral health as well as identify early signs of disease and complications. One of these technologies is the intraoral camera, which allows our team to gain visibility in hard-to-reach areas and best analyze the health of these areas. These specialized tools allow our team to see inside the mouth and throat in real-time with high levels of detail, aiding our team with condition diagnosis as well as being able to add this imagery to patient’s health records. Our team will also make a point of discussing the results of these scans with you to help you better understand your oral health as well as which oral health concerns you may be most at-risk for.
More Convenient and Effective for Patients
All of the above features and advantages of intraoral cameras aren’t just incredible advancements for our doctors, but also for patients in terms of treatment effectiveness, convenience, as well as accuracy in diagnosis and treatment plans. A huge advantage to these images are education, in that our team can take incredibly detailed and high-resolution photos of the inside of your mouth as well as the throat in order to best learn about your mouth and any early signs of potential oral health complications – by spotting these concerns early on, patients are in the best possible position to address these concerns and keep them from developing.
These images are also processed immediately, eliminating the need for the development of x-rays as well as follow-up visits. Overall, intraoral devices are a huge time-saver!
If you’re interested in what these incredible new imaging devices might be able to do for you, or you’d simply like to speak with our team more about these technologies, don’t hesitate to speak with our team at the office of Dr. Jason Dopp today!
Joint Vibration Analysis
If you’re experiencing TMJ symptoms or suffering from other jaw-related conditions, our team at the office of Dr. Jason Dopp leverages advanced technologies to help patients live free of TMJ symptoms and correct any complications they may be experiencing with their jaw. One of these techniques is joint vibration analysis, which helps our team better analyze and address any jaw-related complications you may be suffering from!
What is a Joint Vibration Analysis?
An example of the advanced technologies that we utilize at our office, a joint vibration analysis allows our team to best analyze and view jawbone health through the use of targeted vibrations through the temporomandibular joints as a patient opens and closes their mouth. This gives our team an unmatched view of a patient’s jaw as well as its function and strength.
The Issue Of Joint Vibration
Jaw joint vibration happens due to the cartilage in your jaw joint getting caught when you open and close your mouth, and these discs can often become damaged due to arthritis in the joints, facial trauma, and tooth clenching. These discs can become “stuck” which can create pain and discomfort for patients suffering from this condition.
The Joint Vibration Analysis Processes
A JVA involved our team placing a device that resembles a small pair of headphones onto the joints in the jaw. This device measures vibration as it occurs when you open and close your mouth, and also tracks the different aspects of this vibration as it occurs to joint health. This is a fully painless test that can take just a single visit to complete, and helps our team assess the health of your jaw joints as well as your case of TMJ.
If our team detects vibration in these joints as you open and close your jaw, this is a sign that a patient should begin a TMJ treatment plan that can help to reduce this vibration and help a patient’s jaw remain fully healthy and functional. These treatments may involve laser treatments and appliances meant to address TMJ.
Dr. Jason Dopp and our full team know that it’s possible to live fully free of TMJ pain! Speak with our team today to discuss your case of TMJ as well as the advanced technologies that we use at the office of Dr. Jason Dopp to treat TMJ and similar jaw-related conditions.
Digital Shade Matching
For patients who require replacement teeth and crowns, receiving natural-looking results is key to maintaining a healthy and natural-looking smile. Our team at the office of Dr. Jason Dopp leverages advanced technologies to be able to match your new dental crowns and artificial teeth to your natural teeth using precise measurements that help us provide you with replacement teeth that look perfectly natural!
This technology is referred to as digital shade matching, which helps our team exactly match replacement teeth to your natural teeth to provide patients with flawless and natural-looking results. We have proprietary devices that allows our team to instantly and exactly capture and measure the shade of existing teeth to be able to replicate this shade with crowns and replacement teeth.
Digital Impression System
Digital impressions are quickly becoming preferred by patients and dentists alike as an alternative for traditional impressions. Our team at the office of Jason Dopp is able to offer this advanced imaging technique to our patients, helping to make for higher quality impressions overall as well as more comfortable and functional dental appliances. Using these advanced systems, our team is able to capture each patient’s smile using digital scanning and lasers which offer a high degree of precision in imaging teeth and gum tissue, allowing our team to most accurately create effective and comfortable dental appliances. Overall, digital impressions help our team most efficiently and accurately craft dental appliances, as well as diagnose and create treatment plans, as well as offer patients a faster turnaround on appliance creation. This faster timeline is due to the digital nature of these scans as opposed to the composite impressions traditionally found in dental and orthodontic offices.
Digital impression technologies make for faster treatment timelines, and can even potentially allow for same-week treatment timelines for some patients! Digital impressions also require fewer office visits, adding convenience to the dental treatment process.
