Our primary goal is to help you keep your natural teeth for life. But, if a tooth or teeth are beyond the point of saving, or are already missing, dental implants placed by Dr. Aslam are the optimal replacement solution.
Dental implants mimic the look, feel and function of natural teeth so well that people usually can’t tell the difference between their natural teeth and their implant teeth! Implants will improve your quality of life and allow you to eat the foods you want.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into the jawbone, and a crown, dental bridge or denture is attached. Made of biocompatible material, implants integrate with your jawbone and provide a strong and stable foundation for an artificial tooth or teeth.
Implant Placement Expert
Dr. Aslam has successfully handled thousands of implant cases of all sizes and complexities, from replacing a single tooth to an entire arch of teeth. He can even perform complex bone grafting if it is needed for implant stability.
As a board-certified periodontist—a dental implant and gum treatment specialist—Dr. Aslam is highly trained in all aspects of placing implants, including ensuring a healthy and stable oral foundation for implant placement. He stays current with the latest implant technologies and techniques through continuing education in order to provide his patients with precise and comfortable treatment and lifelike results.
Dr. Aslam plans implant treatment using the latest 3D technology, including our practice’s cone beam CT scanner, which captures highly detailed 3D X-rays of your entire oral anatomy. Using this data with special implant-planning software enables Dr. Aslam to plan and simulate your entire surgery in advance. Dr. Aslam also uses a physical surgical guide, which indicates the exact location, angle and depth for implant placement during your surgery for absolute precision.
Minimally Invasive, Guided Surgery
Thanks to his meticulous treatment planning and use of the surgical guide, Dr. Aslam is able to perform implant placement quickly, efficiently and comfortably. In addition, if extraction of teeth is required, he uses specialized instruments to remove them in a way that is minimally invasive and preserves the natural bone around the tooth extraction site.
Durable, Natural-Looking New Teeth
Dr. Aslam works closely with a restorative dentist to craft the beautiful, strong and long-lasting replacement teeth that attach to the dental implants. If you don’t already have a regular dentist you like, Dr. Aslam can recommend one from a network of doctors he knows and trusts to deliver high quality prosthetic replacement teeth.
Keeping Patients Comfortable
We go to great lengths to ensure our patients are comfortable at all times. Dr. Aslam and our staff are known for their friendly, comfortable care, as well as their ability to put our patients at ease. We take the time to provide detailed explanations of procedures and answer any questions you may have. We also provide blankets, hot towels and memory foam pillows to keep you comfortable, in addition to offering IV sedation or general anesthesia for implant procedures.
Many of our patients report they were surprised by how little discomfort they experienced during and after getting an implant, and that they were able to return to work and regular activities the next day.
