Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Yanagihara is able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implants can be placed at the same time as a tooth extraction further minimizing the number of surgical procedures. To achieve the best possible outcome, dental implant reconstruction requires the expertise of an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. While Dr. Yanagihara performs the initial tooth extractions, actual implant surgery, and bone grafting if necessary, the restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the final teeth replacements. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.
