An ultimate war that is centuries long, between dentist and tiny germs. We battle for each individual tooth, and yet, unfortunately, at times, lose a war. We get a missing tooth.
We are good at removing decay, efficient at treatment of root canals, and knowledgeable at protecting teeth with crowns. Nevertheless, we still struggle, on occasion, to stop recurrent development of decay, reinfection of root canals, or to even prevent fracturing of the teeth.
Yes, until recently, those problems would constitute loss of a tooth. We would believe that we lost a war to bacteria. However, today, it is only a lost battle, not a war. We have Dental Implants!
For more than forty years there has been a growth in the science of IMPLANT DENTISTRY. They have proved to be 95% successful at Osseo integration with a jaw bone. Dental implants will never develop decay (they are made of titanium alloy,) and they have no root canal systems. Dental implants can last for many years, even decades in 90% of the cases.
Success of dental implants and their restorations directly correspond to how well each implant placement and each implant crown were preplanned. At Scarsdale Dental Spa & Wellness, we take pride in providing implant dentistry to our patients. Each patient, each individual implant case is thoroughly discussed between Dr. David Greene (implant restoration specialist) and Dr. Mark Pakan, Periodontist (implant surgeon.)
We believe that only a team effort, collaboration between an implant surgeon and a restorative dentist under one roof can lead to a predictable comfortable outcome for every patient.
We offer a comprehensive dental team diagnosis and treatment plan at Scarsdale Dental Spa & Wellness. Our group of dental specialists will do everything they can to keep and save each individual tooth. However, if there is a lost tooth, if there is a battle that is lost, no worries, we will win the war. Our implant specialists will bring comfortable chewing and pleasant smiles back.
