At Dr. Darryl Burke, DDS Oral Aesthetics and Implants, we treat a wide variety of common and complex dental issues. No matter what you’re experiencing, we have the expertise to get you back to a happy, healthy, beautiful smile. As board-certified dentists, we have extensive, advanced training to provide care for dental and facial conditions. Rely on us for problems ranging from infected wisdom teeth that have to come out to replacement of missing teeth in Concord, CA.
Teeth can become broken or infected for several reasons, including trauma and decay. Bacterial buildup due to poor dental hygiene is often the cause of dental infections. Sometimes repairs, medications, or a combination of both enable our doctors to save your tooth. In such cases, we thoroughly evaluate your teeth to determine what course of treatment is best suited to your specific issue. When damage or decay is extensive, some teeth cannot be rehabilitated through treatment. Though we do our utmost to preserve your natural teeth, extraction may be our only option.
The extraction process for most teeth is fairly straightforward. After making you comfortable with anesthesia, we grip the tooth firmly with a pair of forceps and carefully pull it loose from the socket. Unless it’s a wisdom tooth, a tooth should be replaced once it’s removed, in order to restore the function and esthetics of your smile, as well as to protect your jaw from deterioration. Dental implants are the best overall tooth replacement option, not just in terms of function and esthetics, but also for long-lasting performance. Our dentists are recognized dental implant experts who have helped patients reclaim their smiles with [more than 2,000] dental implant placements to date!
Missing teeth can not only limit your ability to eat, speak and smile comfortably, they may have deeper implications beyond simple chewing function and smile esthetics. Teeth rely on each other for support. When one is missing, the teeth on either side of the gap can shift out of alignment, eventually requiring orthodontic treatment. Further, the absence of tooth roots in the jawbone can cause the jawbone to begin receding, leading to further tooth loss and giving your face an unhealthy, sunken, and even prematurely aged appearance!
Dental implants, recognized as today’s “gold standard” for tooth replacement, can prevent you from experiencing any of those issues. If you follow a tooth extraction or trauma-related tooth loss with dental implant placement, you can continue eating the foods you love, speak and smile without embarrassment, and even significantly boost your self-confidence. All this can be yours, since nothing looks more authentic or lasts longer than our dental implants in Concord, CA . Even if you’ve already begun to suffer bone loss, our team of board-certified dentists can reverse it through bone grafting before placing your dental implants. With years of experience behind us, we’re the team to trust for smile reclamation after tooth loss.
Your jawbone relies on the stimulation of tooth roots and the regular sensation of chewing to keep it healthy. With tooth loss, the bone itself can start to deteriorate unless those missing teeth are replaced quickly. This bone loss has many short-term and long-term consequences. You can end up losing more teeth through a “domino effect” of tooth loss. Your facial features can sink, and your distinctive appearance can be replaced by an aged, unhealthy look that you won’t want or even recognize.
In the severe bone loss section Dr Burke is trained in what is called Real Bone building utilizing what is called the” Khoury Technique” when it comes to bone grafting. Dr Burke has specialized instruments to harvest bone safely from your jaw and place it in the areas that are deficient. This increases the success rate because it is your own bone. Beyond single and full mouth dental implant solutions with bone grafting treatment plans, we also offer zygomatic dental implants. These specialized implants can help patients who have lost a significant amount of bone. Placed in specialized facial bone beyond the jawbone, zygomatic implants are precisely placed for lasting security.
