There are hundreds of dentists to choose from in the Greater Cleveland, OH area. Many of these “general” dentists do not have the training and onsite capabilities to offer certain advanced dental treatments, such as tooth replacement made from implants. Dr. Tony Lu of Downtown Dental Services is an implant dentist; as such, he has acquired knowledge of how to safely, strategically, and precisely place implants in the jaw. The success of this treatment depends on proper planning.
Each implant must be well positioned and placed in the appropriate location to prevent implant failures, and to support the long-term function of the tooth that is connected to it. With correct placement from the get-go, we position you well for lasting oral health and well-being, and an attractive smile. The only thing you must do beyond that is to brush and floss your teeth and gums consistently and thoroughly. Treat them with the same Tender Loving Care that you treat your other, natural teeth. With proper care at home and hygiene visits at our office, you can enjoy your implant-supported teeth for life. Optimal oral care prevents conditions such as peri-implantitis. Like gum disease, peri-implantitis inflammation develops around the implant if bacteria and plaque are not removed properly. This condition can lead to implant failures and threaten the integrity of your new teeth.
Dr. Lu provides many procedures in house that you would otherwise only find at a dental specialist’s practice. Patients appreciate that they get to stay with the team that they already know and trust at Downtown Dental. Our patients do not have to be referred to an unfamiliar specialty office, which also adds to the cost, time, and stress of getting the care that they need to complete their smiles and to support their health.
Due to Dr. Lu’s training in advanced procedures and investment in equipment to support those treatments, he can handle every aspect of the implants process skillfully and safely. He will determine the best way to position your implant in the jaw, as well as the ideal spot to place it. Furthermore, he will use the rich and accurate diagnostic information available to him, to access the treatment site and expertly place the implant. The process itself is straightforward. You will not feel anything due to our use of localized anesthetic. We can also discuss options to enhance your comfort and to assure a pleasant experience. These options include medications to help you relax before and during treatment.
Due to Downtown Dental’s mix of know-how and technology, Dr. Lu is also equipped to:
Many other general dentists only have the capabilities to restore the implants. They do not have the tools and the technical expertise to prepare the jawbone for the implant, or to place these special components. Additionally, other practices are not “in the center of it all,” close to where you work and play, nor do they offer an in-house dental savings membership plan like we at Downtown Dental do!
