How to Choose an Implant Dentist
Dental implants have revolutionized restorative dentistry. These titanium posts provide support for all types of dental restorations, replacing natural tooth roots after tooth loss. It is of utmost importance that your dental implants are placed by a dentist with proven experience in this treatment, who will design every aspect of your surgery to your unique needs. It can be especially beneficial if your dentist can perform every stage of treatment – from planning to final restorations – all under one roof. Dr. Emma Y. Wu is a skilled implant dentist, who can single-handedly help you make the transformation from missing teeth to a fully rehabilitated smile. Dr. Wu will carefully evaluate your jawbone and design a surgical plan that gives you renewed health, function, and aesthetics. Contact Dr. Wu’s office today to learn more.
Careful Planning for a Lasting Restoration
A great implant dentist will use careful, technologically advanced planning to minimize risks and ensure long-term success. Dr. Wu will first examine the state of your oral health to identify any issues that should be addressed before proceeding with dental implants. She then uses digital radiography to take X-rays of your teeth and jaw bone, which allow her to carefully plan the best placement for each of your implants.
Providing Options to Meet Your Needs
An excellent implant dentist is versatile. Dr. Wu provides traditional dental implant placement as well as the All-on-4® method to meet her patients’ varied needs. While implants can traditionally be placed in any configuration necessary to support any number of restorations, the All-on-4® method is specifically used to help patients who need full-arch dentures. With this method, which requires special training and certification, Dr. Wu can place just four implants to support a full denture. Dr. Wu will ultimately determine what type of implant configuration is best for you.
High-quality Crowns and Dentures
Doctor-patient relationships are important. If your dentist can plan and perform your dental implant surgery, in addition to providing the crown or denture you need to complete your treatment, it can give you tremendous peace of mind while saving you considerable time and hassle. Dr. Wu does not need to refer any stage of treatment to outside practices. She and her caring staff can take detailed impressions of your smile to provide the custom, natural-looking restorations necessary to give your smile balance and incredible aesthetics. In some cases, she can use sophisticated in-house technology to create and place a dental crown in the span of a single appointment.
Prestige in the Field of Implant Dentistry
A great implant dentist has solid credentials and proven experience. Dr. Wu has been named a diplomat of the American Association of Implant Dentistry. She has also been recognized as a master by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Dr. Wu is passionate about helping patients improve their quality of life thorough dental implant treatment, and has established herself as a leader in her field.
