What’s a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are posts that replace the missing root via surgery. These imitate a natural tooth root and give a base for your dentist to put on crowns or other forms of replacement teeth. Most people end up needing a dental implant because they’ve lost teeth due to an accident, infection, excessive decay, periodontal disease, or just because they were born missing certain teeth.
It’s an option for people who have perhaps tried other types of solutions and are ready for a different treatment choice. If you’re the owner of some healthy gums, bone, and good dental hygiene habits, then this would be a great dental choice for you. If implants are choice for you call us for an exam and learn about what kinds of teeth would be good to attach to your implant and what kind of upkeep your dental implants would need.
How are Dental Implants Put In?
Dental implants are placed into your jaw bone via minor surgery. Once the post is placed the healing process can begin. When the implant is integrated with the bone, then the steps to attach your new tooth can be started.
Meet Our Dentists
Dr. Andriy Shevchuk
A desire for learning runs deep within Dr. Andriy Shevchuk. Dr. Andriy graduated in 2001 from dental school in Ukraine, his home country, where he subsequently worked as a dentist in a state-of-the-art dental practice. In 2011, he graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in California. Because of his high standard of doctor-patient relationships and the quality of care he provides, he was recognized as one of their best clinicians and received the prestigious Clinical Achievement Award.
Dr. Andriy takes a minimally invasive approach to dentistry. He believes in saving a patient’s original tooth structure whenever possible, rather than opting to replace it. He develops a customized treatment plan that fits a patient’s schedule and budget and takes into consideration the urgency of any dental issues they may have.
Dr. Lev Korovin
Dr. Lev’s initial dental training was also obtained in Russia – he graduated from Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry and then practiced in his home country. But Dr. Lev did not stop there. In 2017 he graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry and became a licensed dentist in our beautiful state of California.
Dr. Lev practices dentistry by the principle “treat others just as you want to be treated”. As such, his approach is straightforward – listen to the patient, evaluate general and dental health, and be open about options and complexity of patient’s problem.
