When a Tooth Replacement Is Necessary
If your smile and confidence have been compromised by a damaged or decaying tooth, we invite you to contact our facilities. Based on the determined condition of your tooth, we will walk you through all the options available to you. Every patient is different. Thankfully, we care about these differences.
Replacing a tooth can be stressful: we know. At our practice, we provide compassionate care to alleviate that stress and ensure our patients' comfort. We'll be there to discuss your options, answer your questions, and give you the care and attention you deserve. Here at Dr. Caudry's, we don't like to pressure our patients: We like to help them, inform them, and educate them on their next best steps to improve their smile. If you suspect you need a tooth replacement, don't hesitate to contact us today. Our team will be sure to assist.
A Transparent Practice Focused on Your Needs
Our practice is guided by a single focus: the patient.
We are upfront and understanding about our patients' concerns, including costs and recovery times. We are transparent about our prices, and we'll be happy to provide you with a thorough breakdown of the costs of surgery. We'll also explain what you can expect during your recovery and how to take care of your tooth replacement.
If you need help understanding your insurance, we'll be sure to help with that too. We'll be there to help you determine your coverage and see how much you can expect to save. At our practice, we want you to have the information, know all the benefits, and understand all the risks so that you can make an informed decision on your dental well-being.
Your First Visit with the Tooth Implant Specialists
Many people are wary of going to see a dentist, no matter how well-recommended they come. Some people go decades without visiting a dentist, and over time, their anxieties of painful procedures and high dental bills only skyrocket.
One step into our facilities and your anxieties will quickly dissolve. Here, our dream team of front-desk and administrative staff are as valued as Dr. Caudry. We do everything we can to make patients comfortable and secure in their decision to work with us. From reviewing their insurance plans to communicating various procedures with clarity, we give patients more than a pretty smile-we give them peace of mind.
Your very first visit with us includes a review of your medical history and a clinical and radiographic examination. Following the analysis, we will discuss the diagnosis and review all possible treatment options as well as their risks, benefits, prognosis and costs. Our team will help you weigh your options, come up with solutions, and find the right course of action for you.
Are the Dental X-Rays for the Dental Implant Procedure Safe?
Despite x-rays being extremely safe for both adults and children, they remain one of the many things that leave potential patients feeling nervous.
At our facilities, safety and patient comfort are our top concerns. That is why we've sought to improve the x-ray procedure. Here, you will only receive digital x-rays, which require four times less radiation than a conventional X-ray. Even an entire series of x-rays (twenty in total) have radiation levels equivalent to several days of sunlight or a 4-hour flight on an airplane.
We like to calm our patients by assuring them that our x-rays are safer than spending a week in New York City or drinking half a bottle of wine-because it is true. A medical CBCT scan exposes an individual to 200 times more radiation than our three-dimensional bone scans. Here at Dr. Caudry's practice, we put your needs and well-being first. We take every precaution to ensure our methods meet the highest standards for safety, predictability, and effectiveness.
Patient-Centered Dental Care
We strive for two things in our facilities: picture-perfect results and patient-centered care. With the help of cutting-edge technologies, we perform flawless procedures, time, and time again. As for the comfort of the patient-that's what truly sets us apart from the rest.
Even before you sit in the dentist's chair, we'll make sure you have everything you need to be as comfortable as can be. We'll welcome you through the front door with a smile and answer any questions you might have. When precision and patient-comfort are your clinician's objectives, you get the results you want without any unnecessary discomfort.
Everything from our CBCT scans to our computer-guided surgical methods is administered with the utmost care. With us, you'll have a patient experience like no other. From the moment you walk through our door to the moment you leave, we'll make sure every moment is as comfortable as can be.
Our Approach to Dental Sedation
Oral sedation dentistry, or simply dental sedation, is a medical procedure that involves the administering of sedatives to facilitate both the patient and the dental procedure. It is one of the many ways we go about ensuring your comfort level when you're seated in the dentist's chair. With sedation, you won't have to worry about anxiety, stress, or your comfort level. Upon request, we'll even adjust sedation levels to improve your experience.
We offer two sedation options: The first is 'Twilight sedation'. Twilight sedation produces a state of comfort and zero pain in our patients. Though you won't be fully unconscious, you will find yourself in a state we describe as, 'Barely Aware-Don't Care'. This level of sedation ensures that you will have virtually no memory of the procedure or procedures. If needed, our on-site medical specialists (Anesthetists) can adjust sedation levels at any point, ensuring optimal comfort.
Our other option is 'Complete Sleep'. As the name suggests, Complete Sleep sedation places patients in a calm, unconscious state. With this gentle and sophisticated anesthesia, you will have zero awareness of any treatment. As you might expect, we administer Complete Sleep and Twilight sedation with hospital-caliber anesthetic equipment.
Sedation Dentistry: Is It Right for Me?
There is more than one reason for sedation during dental and surgical procedures. Some of our patients benefit from the induced state of tranquility because they're anxious about sitting in the dentist's chair. For other patients, sedation allows them to book multiple surgeries in a single appointment, saving themselves lots of time and stress. With our anesthesia, you can rest calmly while our team carries out one procedure after another without any fuss.
When you are stressed or uncomfortable, a minute can feel like an hour. With the help of dental sedation, an hour can feel like a single minute. Whether you'd like to curb your anxiety, or you'd simply like to rest, sedation is for you.
What to Expect from the Tooth Implant Procedure
We are here to dispel the childhood fears of the dentist's chair. With our computer-guided methods and ongoing prioritization of your comfort, your time with us will be nothing like your childhood visits to the dentist.
During the preliminary stages, we will begin taking steps to ensure the most successful surgical outcomes possible. Prior to your surgery, we will prescribe you antibiotics that must be administered in full, from the day before the procedure onward. The surgery itself is performed with little pain or discomfort, and you are also given the option of I.V. sedation for increased comfort.
The implant is placed in the prepared site, and the surgical site is then closed with sutures. The suturing process is quite swift. With the anesthetic or sedation levels of your choosing, the suturing process will likely proceed without notice. After the surgery, it is recommended that you maintain a soft diet to keep discomfort to a minimum. The soft diet ensures that no solid foods impact the surgical site while it is still healing. To ensure your nutrition levels remain optimal during this phase, we will gladly provide you with a list of nutrient-rich food items suitable for consumption. You will also be prescribed appropriate pain medications.
Furthermore, we will schedule 2 post-operative appointments to ensure everything continues to go according to plan. The first appointment will be 10 days after the surgery, and the second appointment will be 2-3 months later to verify that the implant has successfully integrated with the bone.
Post-Operative Dental Care
A dental implant does not fend off future oral issues. Even an implant as incredible as the one you receive from us requires care and attention. For a dental implant to continue to thrive, it is important that you treat your new tooth as if it is one of your natural teeth.
After we have conducted the implant surgery, we will gladly walk you through the steps to properly care for your teeth and gums. With proper flossing and cleaning, you'll have optimal oral health for years and years to come.
