It is incredibly important to address tooth loss sooner rather than later, as waiting can cause a myriad of concerns to develop. What’s more? Even as little as a single missing structure can significantly impact your oral function, jaw structure, ability to properly bite and chew, and more. With time, these concerns will only get worse, and you will face the harsh reality of losing even more teeth. For many, however, bad experiences in the past and a fear of unknown treatment could be enough to deter them from seeking necessary treatment. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX oral surgeon explains how we implement a minimally invasive process to prevent trauma and encourage a faster recovery.
The Fear of Implant Treatment
Whether you are aware of it or not, many individuals are inflicted with a certain fear or anxiety that accompanies attending medical visits. For some, it is a mild sensation of nervousness. For others, it is more than enough to deter seeking treatment in the first place.
Indeed, dental anxiety can lead to significant complications down the line, and it does not help when patients have had previous experiences that were nothing short of the best. In cases such as these, significant decay or infection can set in and quickly lead to adult tooth loss.
With respect to dental implants, traditional methods for placement have typically led to more trauma and damage than necessary. In fact, most oral surgeons use a method known as flaps, in which an incision is made so that the gums can be peeled back to expose the jaw bone. To learn more about this approach, reach out to our team today.
A Radical Approach
Flaps have been known to lead to unnecessary trauma and an overall scarring experience, to say the least. In order to provide the best treatment possible, however, Dr. Brown implements a radically different approach that allows for minimal invasion and subsequently less trauma.
This process, known as our minimally invasive approach, reduces pain and recovery time so that you can enjoy your new teeth sooner rather than later. During your treatment, Dr. Brown will create a small pin-sized hole where the post will be placed, then gently rotates the implant into place. And that is it!
Enjoying Your Smile Sooner
We recognize that implant dentistry can seem like a daunting process, which is why we aim to make your visit as calm and minimally invasive as possible. Replacing lost teeth is a necessity when considering your health and oral function, but there is no reason it should be a traumatic experience.
