About Dental Implants

Dr. Sachs’ expertise in precision surgical techniques and his tradition of planning and coordinating the restoration of debilitated dentitions with restorative dentists led to the growth of his role as an implant surgeon. After the implants have been placed, the patient is given a 4-6-month healing period during which the dental implants have integrated (fused) with the bone. The tooth or teeth replacement is then fabricated and attached to the implant by your dentist.

These techniques are highly reliable and consistently result in a comfortable, permanent dental implant replacement of missing teeth. Of course, each patient has their own set of circumstances that must be assessed individually. When the bone level isn’t quite where it needs to be for a good end, Dr. Sachs’ skill in bone grafting and sinus lift techniques allows him to supplement and enhance the bone, leading to the desired result.

With over 20 years of experience replacing teeth with dental implants, Dr. Sachs has placed hundreds of dental implants for patients with a very high success rate. He uses modern computerized equipment to assure the most exact implant placement throughout the treatment planning and placement phase, and he only uses the highest-quality implants from the industry’s leading manufacturers.

Today’s dental implants have a success record of 97-99%. Even so, Dr. Sachs’ office policy protects patients against failure for the first 5 years, ensuring that your investment will endure for many years. Dr. Sachs’ thriving practice reflects his status as one of the greatest periodontists in the profession.

Not only do dental implants resemble natural teeth in look and feel, but they also help reduce the bone loss and gum recession that often accompanies bridgework and dentures. Furthermore, unlike a bridge, they do not degrade the quality of your nearby teeth by requiring them to be changed to support the implant. Implants are safe and stable, freeing you from the clicks and wobbles of dentures, and the implant’s success rate is very predictable.

Get To Know the Best Choice for You

Many patients are apprehensive because they desire dental implants but are unsure if they qualify. Well, worry not because Dr. Sachs and your dentist will decide on this. If you think that implant dentistry is the best decision for you, it is important for you to undergo a dental or radiographic examination as well as a health history.

In addition to standard radiography, Dr. Sachs uses a sophisticated imaging technology called SimPlant. This software evaluates CAT scan data on the computer and simulates implant placement before beginning therapy. The doctor can use this advanced technology to assess your body’s potential to support a dental implant before starting treatment. Accurately analyzing the bone density and volume will also be easy.

With this procedure, your dental implants will last you a lifetime of comfort and usefulness. Dr. Sachs will work with your dentist to design your treatment plan following the diagnostic phase. He will also share the results with you during a therapy meeting with your doctor, who will discuss your individual needs. We value your concerns and questions, and our team will work closely with you to ensure that your operation goes smoothly.

At this time, we’ll also talk about fees and insurance. There are many different types of insurance plans, and implant coverage varies. We will gladly assist you in receiving any benefits that you may be entitled to.
