Dental Implants Presentation

Dental Implants: The best solution to replace missing teeth.

A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw. The difference is that the implant is made of titanium – the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints. When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, the surgeon first replaces the root with a small dental implant.

Time is allowed for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth.  A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment. In many cases a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.

“Don’t be afraid to Smile.”

For years I’d felt like a part of my body was missing — because my teeth were. My dentist told me that dental implants would make me feel and look a lot better. OK, I said. Now, I’m thrilled. I can smile, eat anything, and enjoy a good laugh with my friends.

Surgical Advances in Dental Implants

Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Meisami, Dr. Lee and Dr. Rifkind are able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth extraction – further minimizing your number of surgical procedures.

Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist.  Drs. Meisami, Lee or Rifkind performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary.  The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

Our Patient Testimonials

Dr. Tina Meisami and her team are absolutely wonderful. Everyone in the Yorkville Oral Surgery is super professional and kind. I have been a patient for the past 12 years and have gotten two tooth implants and in my many visits I have always been treated with great amount of respect and kindness by Dr. Meisami and everyone that works there. Even making appointments on the phone has been a pleasure unlike a lot of other doctor offices. Wait times are minimal due to the sufficient amount of staff that are on duty and the level of their knowledge and professionalism. I am very grateful for their service to the community.

Our Patient Testimonials

I had 2 surgeries: an extraction/bone graft and then the implant surgery. Both went super well! I was really impressed with the care that Dr. Meisami and her whole team took in explaining the procedures to me. I was very nervous about being put under for my first surgery, and once I came out of it, I felt very lucid, and did not feel any nausea. By the time i had my second surgery I felt very comfortable and confident in Dr. Meisami and her team. I would recommend Dr. Meisami and Yorkville Oral Surgery to anyone! They are super professional and lovely people and their premises are super clean. I felt very safe being there for a follow up appointment recently and all Covid safety measure were followed.
