According to the Center for Disease Control, 69% of Americans between the ages 35 and 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth as a result of decay. That’s well over half the population!
As a result, Dental Implants are becoming more common as a permanent solution for missing teeth. Bridges and dentures are still a viable option for many candidates, but dental implants look, feel, and perform just like your natural teeth.
Dr. Joseph Field is the Bay Area’s leading Implant Specialist. He has focused his career on dental implants, and has successfully transformed the smiles of countless patients who had almost completely given up on ever smiling beautifully again.
Below are some aspects of Dr. Fields practice that make his services superior.
One of the biggest reasons people put off getting dental implants is their fear of the procedure itself. Surgery of any kind can be scary, and oral surgery is certainly no exception.
That’s why Dr. Field specializes in sedation dentistry. He isn’t all that fond of sitting in the dental chair himself, and therefore has the utmost compassion and sympathy with his patients who feel a lot of anxiety about anything dentist related, or even have dental phobia.
Sedation Dentistry allows Dr. Field to offer a comfortable, even relaxing experience for his patients. There are varying levels of sedation, from a mild sedative effect from laughing gas, to be being put completely to sleep so that you don’t remember a thing.
A desirable side effect to sedation is faster healing time for the patient. Because they experience less anxiety and stress, the body tends to experience less distress, and heal faster.
Advanced Healing Technology for Dental Implants
One of the more fascinating technological advances that has improved the Dental Implant experience is Platelet Rich Fibrin Enhanced Healing (PRF). It is advanced healing technology using your own blood in a very simple and painless procedure to speed up the healing process after implant surgery.
A small amount of blood is taken before your surgery, and put through a special machine to separate out the healing proponents of the blood. The resulting material is then injected into the site of the implant at the time of surgery in order to hasten recovery time.
Dr. Field believes that every possible effort should be made to ensure that your implant surgery is successful. Your dental implants should last you a lifetime, and the procedure itself should use advanced technology and the most skilled hands possible to guarantee that this is the case.
