Treatment options will be provided and discussed based on your individual desires. Patients frequently want to know what is the best method to permanently replace missing teeth. The correct answer varies, based on age and health. I provide our patients with options and recommendations so that they can make the best choice. The two most popular options for permanent tooth replacement are a fixed dental bridge or a dental implant and porcelain crown.

A fixed dental bridge utilizes the teeth next to the missing tooth area to support the bridge which is permanently cemented in place. Fixed bridges work wonderfully but it is essential that the teeth supporting the bridge have good gum health with solid bone structure. If this condition is met then the tooth structure itself must be evaluated for support of the fixed bridge. Often times the teeth that will be used to support the bridge have fillings that are breaking due to the increased chewing load they are providing because of the missing tooth. The old restorations are removed and the teeth are built up and strengthened during the bridge preparation. The final bridge design is a series of crowns splinted together producing an extremely durable chewing area. Conversely, if the adjacent teeth to the missing tooth are free of decay or fillings then an implant may be a better choice to consider. The first step in placing a dental implant is to take a CT scan so the anatomy of the bone can be seen in three dimensions and the exact placement of the implant can be planned. Bone grafting needs are also determined and vital structures are identified. Modern imaging has made dental implant placement very precise and that is why today they have a success rate that exceeds 96%.

The surgical placement of the implant or even multiple implants is done in office with local anesthesia. Sometimes mild sedation is used if a patient desires and the procedure produces generally low post-operative discomfort. The dental implant or implants are then used to retain crowns, bridges, or even implant retained dentures if an entire arch of teeth is missing. Whether you have a question about missing teeth or just require routine dental hygiene visits we invite you to become a part of our dental family.

CARDIO FOR LIFE

by The Editor for Health

My name is Ed Perez in 1990 I had a triple bypass and in June of 2014, I had 3 stents implanted. The surgeon said I would have to stay on blood thinners, aspirin, statins and cholesterol reducers for the rest of my life. If you look up the side effects of these drugs, it will scare you to death. I was afraid of dying from a blood clot, clogged arteries or bleeding to death and after seeing one of my co-workers who was taking these drugs bleed to death from an ulcer, I knew I had to find something better. After doing extensive research, I came across an amazing product called Cardio for Life that has literally changed my life. When I read that it actually helps to prevents blood clots naturally without any side effects, would help to keep my arteries from clogging up with plaque and that I wouldn’t have to worry about bleeding to death, I knew I had to give it a try. My cardiologist has been so impressed with my progress that he has taken me off the blood thinner, the cholesterol reducer and the statin. If you are going through the same torment I went through, do yourself a favor and go to www.perezcardiohealth.com, read the information and decide for yourself.  When you pull up the website, move your mouse over ARTICLES/VIDEOS at the top of the page and click on ARTICLES on the drop down menu.

SOLAR ELECTRIC – IS IT RIGHT FOR YOU?

by The Editor for Features, Home and Garden
Tags: , ,

With the abundance of sun in Arizona it’s a wonder we are just now asking this question. The fact is there has never been a better time to go Solar than right now. Arizona has some of the best incentives in the country. SRP will pay $2.70 per watt rebate ($3.00 for APS) of solar installed and the State will kick-in a $1,000 tax credit and not charge you any sales tax. Add that to a 30% federal tax credit and you end up with 65-70% of the cost of your system paid for. You still have some up front costs but the pay back is still attractive for most homeowners. For example, a $30,000 5 kilowatt system will end up costing you approximately $10,800 after all rebates and tax credits. This system will save you from $100 to $120 off your SRP electric bill depending on how efficiently you use the system.
