After an initial exam and x-rays to determine candidacy for the procedure, the dental surgeon installs the metal implant into the jawbone, where it acts as a replacement tooth root. The implant is then allowed to fuse to the jawbone, which can take several months. After the implant heals, the dentist attaches the abutment, a connecting post, to the implant before fitting the all-porcelain crown over the abutment. The crown is made to look and function like a natural tooth. About three or four appointments will be required for the implant procedure.<p>
Dr. F. Todd Wortham—or “Dr. T,” as his patients call him—is so well trained in implantology, he finds installing replacement teeth to be fun. The dentist, who has more than 500 hours of continuing education in advanced dental techniques under his belt, has learned to be one with his work to such a degree that even the challenging procedures have become a joy.
Together with longtime colleague Dr. Rachel M. Deininger, Dr. T takes time to get to know each patient who comes through the door or scratches through the drywall. In addition to installing dental implants, the doctors treat periodontal disease, whiten teeth with custom bleaching trays, and fit patients for dentures.
