Santa Clarita Periodontist
Offering Implant Restoration & Other Periodontal Services
Periodontology is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on the structures that support teeth, as well as periodontal diseases. At Neal C. Green, D.D.S., Inc., we offer a few periodontal treatments and services in Santa Clarita and Palmdale.
If you have missing or damaged teeth or you suffer from periodontal disease, we are here to help you get the treatment you need. During a consultation, Dr. Green can evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. We can assess what treatments are best suited for your situation and determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.
Dental Implant Restoration
If you already have dental implants, Neal C. Green, D.D.S., Inc. is the team you can trust to restore them.
If you do not already have implants and are interested in getting them, we can refer you out to a local periodontist who specializes in dental implants. We can work with your periodontist to form a treatment plan that marries their approach with ours so that you can achieve and maintain optimal oral health.
Implant surgery involves the tooth extraction (if the damaged tooth is still present), bone grafting, and placement of the implant. An abutment is then attached to the implant and it then connects to the crown. At Neal C. Green, D.D.S., Inc., we will handle the creation and placement of both your temporary and permanent crown.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are preferred by dentists as the ideal tooth reconstruction solution. Most dentists agree that dental implants are a better and longer-lasting solution than dentures.
Your natural teeth consist of two equally important parts: the crown and the root. The root is located beneath the gum line and works to stimulate the jawbone. Without it, patients will experience gradual bone deterioration that worsens oral health and appearance. Dental implants address the need for a replacement tooth root. Once a titanium post is inserted, a natural, tooth-colored porcelain crown is attached to the dental implant via an abutment. This crown seamlessly replicates the structure of natural teeth.
