Dental Implant Treatment-the Master’s Approach To The Long-Term Success Of Your Implant Treatment.

Dental implants are a great option for replacing one or more missing teeth, acting as a root replacement (integrated in the bone) gives us  stable foundation to restore your mouth with individual crowns, or multi toothed bridge or to support a denture. The implant looks and functions as natural tooth while stimulating bone growth. Preserving bone is crucial to looking youthful.

The Dental Implant Procedure and The Team Approach.  We coordinate with two periodontists for surgical placement of implant(s), believing that a  well-trained periodontist is best qualified for initial implant placement to preserve the integrity of the bone and tissue.   Dr. Bloom (acting as quarterback) guides the surgeon on where to place the implant(s), so that he can achieve an optimal restorative result. To you, our patient, you should have total confidence that by the end of this process, you’ll love the look and feel of your restored smile.

Dental impant procedure/treatment is complex, requires careful planning and is multi-phased. Phase one—once the surgeon places the implant, it must rest for a minimum of four months before restorative treatment, to allow for proper bone integration. Phase twoDr. Bloom places a temporary crown (we call it a provisional) on implant.  In this critical phase, Dr Bloom is testing if the implant crown is in harmony with your bite.  Once we’ve got your bite right, he’ll move to Phase three-completion.

These phases are mission critical to the long term success of your implant, yet very different than standard practice. Dr Bloom is in the small percentgae of dentists who consider the provisional stage critical.  He uses a custom abutment,a fancy term for a small cover aroud the implant. Your new crown fits over this cover, accomplishing two important tasks. One—if the surgeon hasn’t placed the implant in the ideal position, this cover corrects this issue. Because a dental implant has zero flex (unlike a natural tooth), before placing the final restoration, in the provisional phase, he’ll assess how many pounds of pressure and torquing forces you exert when you bite down.  Second—the cover (custom abutment) protects the implant from any foriegn body that could seep around the implant and lead to inflammation, and implant failure. With these metrics, he’ll choose the best material to use for your new implant crown and/or bridge so that you’re assured optimal results in aesthetics and function.

We only work with dental lab professionals who abide by Dr. Bloom’s exacting standards, they must use articulators for bite simulation and custom abutments for implants.
