Dental Implants

Dental implants are surgical-grade root devices that support permanent tooth prosthetics that are manufactured to last a lifetime. These artificial roots are anchored in the bone beneath the gums where they become fused into the jaw. A crown is mounted atop the implant for a long-lasting and natural looking smile. Many dentists and patients prefer dental implants because they offer the same function as natural teeth and also help prevent bone atrophy in the jaw. Dental implants may be used to replace a single missing or damaged tooth or to restore an entire smile.


Advantages of dental implants include:

  • - time tested quality and effectiveness. The first implant was first developed in the 1950’s and over 3 million people enjoy having dental implants today.
  • - function that is like your natural teeth
  • - prevention of bone loss in your jaw
  • - replacement of a single missing or damaged tooth or restoration of your entire smile.

You may qualify for dental implants if you have missing, broken or severely decayed teeth, and you are in relatively good overall health.

Did you know…that approximately 30 million people live with no natural teeth in one or both jaws? But more and more dental patients are opting for dental implants as a means of tooth replacement. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry reports that 3 million people currently have dental implants – a number that is rapidly growing by about 500,000 per year. Modern titanium implants were first developed in the 1950’s, but archeologists have determined that ancient Egyptians and Mayans were the first cultures to implant artificial teeth.


Sometimes teeth need to be removed. Whether abscessed or broken, we might not be able to save the tooth. It needs to be extracted. The type of extraction is determined by Dr. Dwivedi after he has examined the situation and obtained a radiograph (x-ray). He will advise you of the best course of action. But rest assured, there will be no pain. Whether you are awake with local anesthesia or asleep with general anesthesia, you will not feel anything. Dr. Dwivedi has been trained in anesthesiology just for this situation.

Wisdom teeth or 3rd molars are the most commonly extracted teeth. 

Instructions will be given to you for after the extraction care and an after hours contact will be provided. You won’t be left alone without any contact. Most extractions go very smoothly, even wisdom teeth. So don’t be worried. If there is a tooth which has to be removed give us a call.
