Implant dentistry replaces missing teeth in a way that is lifelike in both beauty and function. If you have ever worn dentures, partial dentures, or even know people who do, you are may be aware of how difficult chewing can be with removable prosthetic teeth. Dental implants are a life-changing event that brings quality of life back, because not only can you eat unlimited options of healthy foods again, but you can also smile, talk and live normally again.
Dr. Phil Kroll, implant dentist in Ventura, is one of the few dentists in Ventura credentialed by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID). This means Dr. Kroll is highly qualified to place and restore dental implants, which is currently the procedure of choice for missing teeth. Unlike most general dentists, Dr. Kroll is able to perform the surgery and the restoration all in one office.
There are less than 400 Fellows of the AAID in the world because of the rigorous board certification examinations that are administered by world class leading experts in oral implantology.
Dental implants can replace ill-fitting dentures or missing teeth. Dr. Kroll's patients report that they feel and look like natural teeth. The benefits of dental implants are numerous: prevention of bone loss; improved appearance; the ability to eat your favorite healthy foods; the ability to maintain healthy adjacent teeth; and your experience of renewed confidence and increased self-esteem.
One of the main benefits is that dental implants are patterned after the structure of your natural teeth. This means that dental implants provide you with a highly stable dental support system for the replacement of teeth or dentures.
Dental Bone Grafting
The success of a dental implant and its ability to support a dental restoration is very much dependent upon how much bone is available in the site where the dental implant is placed. Bone volume is affected by periodontal disease, trauma, and infections. It is not unusual to open up a site in the mouth for implant placement and find out that some of the critical supporting bone is missing. Dr. Kroll, implant dentist in Ventura, uses the best dental techniques to replace missing bone.
In certain cases, Dr. Kroll can increase the height of bone and the width of bone, and he can fill in anatomical voids in bone thereby creating new bone fill in all sorts of defects that develop when teeth are lost. Dr. Kroll can even use grafting techniques to prevent the loss of bone in circumstances where bone would normally be lost, like during the extraction of a tooth.
Dr. Kroll, top implant dentist in Ventura, is uniquely qualified to perform implant dentistry. He is credentialed as a Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), the oldest and most recognized dental implant organization in the world. Most dentists perform only the prosthetic phase of dental implants, forcing patients to go to an oral surgeon or periodontist for the surgical phase.
As a Fellow of the Academy, Dr. Kroll is credentialed to perform both the surgical and prosthetic phases without patients having to leave Dr. Kroll’s dental office.
