Patient Testimonials

Awesome is how I would describe my experience at your office.  Though no one wants to have a root canal done, it was a relatively pain-free experience to have it done.  Dr. Quevedo and the staff are excellent and told me what to expect all along the way.  They were very caring and concerned that I feel as limited amount of pain as possible during the procedure and that is exactly what happened.  I would highly recommend your office to anyone who needs to have a root canal done.  Thank you very much!

Greg (patient)

Wow ....root canals surely have gotten a bad rap!  This was a painless procedure from start to finish with wonderful care, attention and information about the procedure.  Dr. Quevedo and his staff were fabulous; very helpful to get me into care right away and reassuring during the procedure.  Thanks so much....I''ll be back to see you all next time around!

Cynthia (patient)

Nobody wants a root canal but if you need one Dr. Quevedo and his team is the place to go.  I have had four root canals in my life in preparation of obtaining a crown. I have seen Dr Quevedo three of the four times and he is my number one recommendation!  He is very mindful of his patient''s discomfort and takes every opportunity to keep the visit pain free.

MICROSCOPE GUIDED IMPLANT SURGERY

Dr. Quevedo utilizes the Zeiss PROErgo microscope for precisoin placement and treatment of dental implants.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a safe, esthetic alternative to traditional crowns, bridgework, and dentures. Because implant restorations look and feel more like natural teeth, they offer new levels of comfort, security and confidence over traditional treatments. Dr. Joseph Quevedo utilizes Zimmer® Dental Implants, which have been helping to provide quality of life to patients with restorative needs for more than two decades.

How do they work?

A dental implant is a small “anchor” made of titanium that is inserted into the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth root. After osseointegration (when the surrounding bone has healed to the implant), a replacement tooth is secured to the top of the implant. This new tooth looks, feels and performs similar to your natural teeth.

What are the benefits?

Choosing dental implants as a treatment option can offer you a number of significant advantages.

Maintain anatomy. If you have missing teeth, the bone begins to shrink over time. Unhealthy bone loss can make your jaw line recede and change your facial structure. Dental implants can help prevent deterioration of the jawbone so your face retains its natural shape.

Keep your healthy teeth. A better long-term alternative to bridgework, dental implants eliminate the need to grind down healthy teeth when replacing one or more adjacent teeth. Your own natural healthy teeth are not compromised.

Security. Securely anchored dental implants do not slip or move. This eliminates some of the key problems of dentures, including poor fit, gum irritation and pain from exposed nerves. The result is superior comfort, reliability, and freedom from embarrassment.

What is involved in the implant procedure?

The dental implant process involves several steps that take place over a time period that averages from 4 to 9 months.

The typical process will include:

Pre-treatment consultation: After a careful evaluation of your dental and medical health history, your practitioner will determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. If you are, you will then have thorough consultations with surgical and prosthetic specialists before your treatment begins.

Initial implant placement: Your practitioner places the dental implant into your jaw while you are under either local or general anesthesia. Over the next several months, bone will heal to the surface of the implant, anchoring it into position. Depending on your particular case, an additional minor procedure creates an opening through which your artificial tooth will emerge.

Implant prosthetic attachment: During this phase, your practitioner painlessly attaches a prosthetic “post” to the implant. An impression will be taken, and soon after, an artificial replacement tooth will be created for a natural restoration.

Proper maintenance: Your dental practitioner will guide you on the proper care and maintenance of your new implants before, during and after the procedure. By following a regular routine of careful oral hygiene and regular checkups, your implants can look, function and feel great for many years to come.

 

Single Tooth Replacement

If you are missing a single tooth and currently use a removable partial denture or tooth-supported crown, an implant-supported crown may be a better alternative. Single tooth replacements look and feel so natural, typically only you and your practitioner will know the difference.

Implant-supported crowns can provide the following advantages over traditional treatment options:

Look, feel and perform similar to your natural tooth

Help preserve surrounding bone by replacing the tooth root

Help prevent bone loss and jaw line recession

Do not compromise your adjacent teeth to support a bridge

Restore a more secure biting ability than a removable denture

Restore self-confidence and appearance

Improve appearance and self-esteem

Require similar oral care as a natural tooth
