Are you missing one or more teeth?
You are in luck! Dr. Donald Reid offers several different types of tooth replacement options in his Truckee, CA dental office, including dental implants. Dental implants are a convenient and highly durable solution for patients who have lost one or more teeth. Dr. Reid usually suggests dental implants as the best option to restore your smile because of their high success rate and ability to look and function like your natural teeth. During your first visit, Dr. Reid will perform a comprehensive exam to determine if dental implants are the right solution for you. If you are not a candidate for dental implants, Dr. Reid offers a range of replacement options to restore your missing teeth.
As a fellow of the International Congress of Implantologist (ICOI), Dr. Reid dedicates hours of continuing education and training to ensure that he is up to date on the current advancements and procedures and implant dentistry. It is important to find a dentist you can trust when it comes to replacing your teeth. Dr. Reid is dedicated to providing patients with high quality, patient focused dental care to help them achieve their ideal smile.
Dental implants can be used to replace one, several, or a full arch of missing teeth. Dr. Reid will examine your teeth to determine whether you need implant secured dental bridges, dentures, or dental crowns to restore your smile. During the course of your treatment, Dr. Reid will incorporate the use of advanced technology, like The Cone Beam CT Scanner, which evaluates and analyzes high-priority anatomy for implanted restorations and oral surgery. The CAT Scan allows Dr. Reid to effectively identify the proper placement of the dental implant, best implant brand, size, and positioning angles, providing patients with more consistent results each time.
Receiving dental implants is a multi step procedure. During one of your first visits, Dr. Reid will place you under local anesthesia while he surgically attaches your dental implants. Usually, dental implants take 3-6 months to fuse with the jawbone. After the dental implant fuses with the jawbone, Dr. Reid is able to attach your final restoration. You may receive a denture, dental bridge, or dental crown depending on your specific case. In the end, with dental implants, patients will have a functional, natural looking solution to their missing teeth. Dental implants also offer a range of benefits:
- Prevents further bone loss in jaw and gum recession
- Does not rely on neighboring teeth for support
- Does not require day to day maintenance, such as adhesives
- Improves appearance of the smile and lower face
- Durable and long lasting solution
- Patients can comfortably chew, speak, and drink
- No worry of slippage or dentures “falling out”
