ANKYLOS®

While regular brushing, flossing and preventive care allow us to maintain healthy smiles for a lifetime, the gradual wear and tear on your teeth over time can eventually lead to tooth loss.

Using the ANKYLOS® implant system, Dr. Ghassan Aro can ensure that your implant looks and functions exactly like your original tooth.

The ANKYLOS implant system is designed to place your implant in the location that will provide the strongest foundation for your teeth while also achieving the ideal orientation for the implant restoration that will cap your implant post. Whether your restoration is a crown, bridge or denture, the result of your treatment is long-term stability and a sustained, natural appearance. When you receive implants using this system, you can count on a high quality result that is beautiful, functional and reliable to restore your oral health and smile.

Bone Grafting

Gum grafting treatment for receding gums works best for patients who are suffering from more extensive gum loss where gum disease cannot be resolved by a professional cleaning alone. This procedure can help repair the damaged area of the gums and work to prevent further gum tissue loss. In addition to stopping recession, gum graft treatment will better protect the roots of the teeth from decay by giving the patient more gum line, and reduce tooth sensitivity to hot and cold foods.

There are three types of gum grafts: connective-tissue grafts, free gingival grafts, and pedicle grafts. Connective-tissue grafts are most commonly used because the procedure involves taking a flap of healthy tissue from the roof of your mouth then stitching it over the precise area suffering from an exposed root and gum recession. Free gingival grafts involve the same process as connective-tissue grafts except that the tissue is specifically taken from the palate of the mouth. Lastly, pedicle grafts use the tissue next to the affected tooth in need of repair.

During a gum graft procedure, the patient doesn’t feel a thing as we use a local anesthetic to keep them pain-free. After the operation, the patient may experience some soreness and slight discomfort, which can be effectively treated with a combination of rest, cold compresses, and, if needed, prescription medication. With proper care, the gum graft will protect the previously exposed root and serve as a healthier gum line, restoring your smile and confidence.

Dental Implant Restoration

At Aro Dental, we provide implant restoration services when they’re necessary. Our staff knows the signs of implant problems, and we are committed to checking them each time we see you. During visits after having implants put in, we assess your gums, bone density and any part that’s connected to the implant. These checks are in an effort to keep you healthy and catch any problems with the implants.

When you receive implants, we will guide you on how best to take care of them. This will help you minimize problems and be aware if any present themselves. If you think there is an issue with your current implants, please let us know so we can check them.

At Aro Dental, we follow our ethical way of doing business when we approach implant restoration. This means that we put your health and well-being first. We always check your implants after we fit them, and we give you the information you need about your oral health and treatments.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are a great solution for patients who may be missing teeth, but still have healthy bone structure within their mouth. These specific dentures are a permanent way to replace your missing teeth with the same look and functionality as your original teeth. Unlike typical dentures that can be slippery and unstable, implant-supported dentures are embedded into the bone and give you a more natural feel of support and strength. These dentures are an excellent choice for multi-tooth replacement since the implant ‘anchors’ can better support your dentures.

During the consultation, we will evaluate your oral health and discuss what treatment options are right for you. If implant-supported dentures seem like the best option for you, then we will extract any remaining teeth that need to be removed in order to make room for your new implant-supported dentures. You won’t feel any pain as we use an anesthetic to keep you comfortable during this process. After the operation, you may experience some tenderness that can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers or other prescriptions we may discuss prior to the procedure.

After recovering from the initial operation, the implants will be placed directly into your bone for optimal support of the dentures. A metal bar may also be used to connect the implants and serve as a structural hold for your new dentures.

Here at Aro Dental, we want you to feel confident and comfortable in your smile. All of our dentures are crafted and custom-made specifically for you so that you can have the perfect fit and feel. With proper care, your implant-supported dentures can be a permanent and life-long solution.

If you are interested in implant-supported dentures, please contact our office today at (805) 541-4290.
