Dental Implant Restorations
Do you have missing teeth? Dental implants may be an excellent option for you! What is a dental implant? A dental implant is a small titanium post placed into the upper or lower jawbone during a short surgical dental procedure. For the replacement of a single tooth, the implant acts as the root of the tooth. Implants provide many benefits:
- Providing a solid and stable support for your jawbone
- Neighboring teeth are not affected
- Look and feel natural
- Used to anchor a denture or bridge instead of simply replacing a single tooth
- Make it easier to speak and chew
- Restore lost facial volume
Who will place my implant? Dr. Silberman uses a team approach for implants. After a comprehensive examination, Dr. Silberman along with specialists in periodontal and oral surgery share information to ensure the best implant restoration. All members of the implant team stay in close contact with each other to make sure everyone clearly understands what needs to be done to meet the patient’s expectations. Dr. Silberman is available to his patient through every stage of treatment during the process. In the end, you’ll have a beautiful smile – free from missing teeth!
Are you noticing the following symptoms:
- Clicking, popping, or grating sounds coming from the jaw
- Muscle pain that can be felt in the cheeks and temples
- Jaw joint pain
- Difficulty opening the mouth wide
- Lockjaw or the jaw getting stuck open
- Severe tension headaches
These may be signs of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ/TMD). The TMJ is the joint connecting your skull to your upper/lower jaw. It brings harmony and function to the movement of your jaw and when that jaw is out of place, it results in the above symptoms. There may be many factors causing TMJ disorder, including:
- Traumatic injury to the jaw
- Nighttime grinding
- Stress and anxiety
Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder that is potentially dangerous, and the most common symptom is snoring. Breathing will repeatedly start and stop throughout the night, causing interrupted sleep, leaving you feeling tired. If not treated properly, sleep apnea can lead to harmful symptoms, including:
- Slow reflexes
- Poor concentration
- Risk of heart attack
- High blood pressure
- Memory loss
- Sexual dysfunction
- Chances of stroke
Anyone (including children) can develop sleep apnea, but it is more common among middle-aged adults who are overweight. To help, Dr. Silberman can relieve your sleep apnea with a snore guard. Our patients who have been fitted with snore guard for sleep apnea have been delighted because of its comfort and ease of use.
Wouldn’t it be nice to replace your CPAP machine? You can have a sleep apnea appliance, which is effective, comfortable, and has no multiple pieces, no wires, and no elastic bands!
Sedation dentistry is an excellent option for our patients who feel anxious about visiting the dentist. Sedation dentistry helps you feel more comfortable and relaxed during your dental treatment. We offer two types of sedation dentistry:
- Nitrous oxide (laughing gas): Commonly used sedation method. You will inhale the nitrous oxide during your treatment, helping you feel at ease. Nitrous oxide wears off within minutes of the end of the treatment, allowing you to immediately resume your normal activities, including driving.
- Oral sedation: Involves taking a prescription medication the night before the procedure, and again approximately one hour before your appointment. Oral sedation will help you feel calm and relaxed during your dental visit and you will have little or no recollection of the experience. You will be required to have someone bring you to and take you from the office.
Dr. Silberman will help you determine which type of sedation is best for you. There is no charge for this consultation visit to select the best sedation technique for your needs.
