Find Your Smile with Dental Implants
Have you lost your smile because of missing teeth? Find it again with dental implants from Dr. Rizk. Not only is Dr. Rizk highly trained and experienced, he conducts the procedure in-house, so you can relax knowing you’re in the capable hands you’ve come to know and trust. If you’re missing one or more teeth due to decay, disease, or injury, dental implants may be the perfect solution.
Dr. Rizk will use the iCAT CT scanner to get a high-resolution, 3D picture of your mouth to accurately determine whether implants are right for you. If you decide to proceed, the 3D representation will also help the dentist determine precisely where to place the implants. Dr. Rizk will place the implant in your jaw, then give it time (typically a few weeks) to heal and fuse with your natural jawbone. Next, he will put an abutment or connector on top of the implant, and finally, attach the new tooth.
If you are missing all or nearly all of the teeth on the top or bottom, you may be a perfect candidate for All-on-4 implants. Instead of dentures, or one implant per tooth, Dr. Rizk can restore your smile by using just four implants, providing the structure, stability, and durability you need with quicker recovery time and a full, natural-looking smile.
Following a consultation with Dr. Rizk, especially if the two of you decide that dentures are your best course of action, you may consider implant-retained dentures. In this procedure, Dr. Rizk will place implants in your jaw and attach your dentures to the implant. With implant-retained dentures, you won’t need to bother with messy denture adhesives. Best of all, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite foods and you’ll be able to talk freely with no worries about dentures that slip and slide.
Other Implant Dentistry Services
For our patients whose existing jawbone is insufficient or too soft for the implant procedure, Dr. Rizk may recommend bone grafting, ridge splitting, or sinus lifts to correct these issues prior to the dental implant work.
