Dr. Anjali Rajpal, DMD
Dr. Rajpal considers herself a practitioner of the art of dentistry. She believes that dentistry is more than just a scientific pursuit. It requires judgment, intuition and intricate technique. She's committed to blending art and science to create healthy smiles that are both aesthetically-pleasing and functional. Because of her interest in painting and sculpture and because she enjoys working with her hands, she finds dentistry a natural fit for her.
Today, dental implants are a routine procedure. Implants can used to replace teeth, support permanent bridges and missing teeth, or support full/partial dentures.
Implants are surgically placed into the jawbone to act as tooth root substitutes and thus serve as an anchor to stabilize artificial teeth. Once the implant is placed, it is allowed to integrate into the jawbone, enabling it to be firm and stable. After several months, the implant can then be used to support an implant crown, implant fixed bridgework or implant supported dentures.
With implants, we can replace one, some or even all of your missing teeth and help eliminate the instability associated with surface adhesives and removable bridges. Dental implants also act to stop the deterioration in the jawbone, which occurs when the natural teeth are lost. Implants are made from different types of metallic and bone-like ceramic materials that are bio-compatible with body tissue
Dentures can be firmly secured by implants. Strategically placed implants are surgically inserted into the jaw bone that connect to your dentures and then are secured in your mouth, keeping the dentures from moving or coming out entirely.
As an alternative to dentures, we can use implants to strategically create a support mechanism for permanently cemented bridges, thus eliminating the need for a denture. Implants resemble and "feel" like the real thing, and improve chewing ability compared to dentures. For this reason, dental implants are quickly becoming the alternative choice to traditional dentures. However, dental implants are not for everyone and each patient must be thoroughly examined with diagnostic x-rays to evaluate proper bone support.
Implant supported reconstructions are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement. The success rate of implants are high and highly predictable
State-of-the-art technology in implant dentistry makes it possible to provide replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.
