Dental Implants Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.
What Are Dental Implants?
A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown.
If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw.
The difference is that the implant is made of titanium – the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints.
When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, the oral surgeon first replaces the root with a small dental implant.

The Dental Implant Process
Time is allowed for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment. In many cases a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.
“Don’t be afraid to Smile.”
For years I’d felt like a part of my body was missing — because my teeth were. My dentist told me that dental implants would make me feel and look a lot better. OK, I said. Now, I’m thrilled. I can smile, eat anything, and enjoy a good laugh with my friends.
Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Veeranki and Dr. Vanderbeek are able to place single-stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth extraction – further minimizing your number of surgical procedures.
Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Drs. Veeranki and Vanderbeek perform the actual dental implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary. The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

As stated, Dr. Veeranki has built a practice which at every level demonstrates the highest degree of quality, competence and professionalism. The doctor and his staff have also not lost sight of the need to be caring, kind and sympathetic to their patients. I was always treated with kindness and respect. Not only did I receive the best in medical and dental care, but I also received the type of personal care and responsiveness to my concerns that put me at ease under stressful circumstances. I strongly recommend the Veeranki Dental Surgery Office, without reservation, to anyone, young or old, who is in need of the services they offer.

Patient Review by Ron D
The doctor was able to get my IV in one try. I fell asleep and the staff woke me up and said it was time to go home. It was that fast and easy. I never bled or even tasted blood during recovery. I am definitely having this doctor do all my work.
