Dr. Demascus and his staff have been providing dental implant services for his patients for more than 28 years. Through this time we have achieved an extremely high degree of success and currently find over 98% success of the implants placed at our office. There is little in medicine and dentistry that can offer a patient such an outstanding success rate. An important reason for this achievement is the uncompromising approach to patient care. Adequate care is given to the diagnosis and the development of a course of treatment. Ample surgical time is always allowed as some implant procedures need extra time once care has started. Patients often thank us post-surgically for the relaxed, gentle and pain free service they receive. Another important factor in our success is the use of only the top name brand dental implant systems. Many companies sell dental implants which do not have the research or long term studies indicating long term success. Other companies sell inexpensive implants manufactured in China. Many doctors use these systems due to their “low cost”, but would you want these placed in your mouth? Unfortunately, these generic implants generally do not provide the same level of service to the patient as the name brand systems used in our office. There are few problems through the years with dental implants and we often see our patients enjoying the use of their implants 15, 20 and 25 years later. The surgeon and implant system used makes a big difference in the outcome of your treatment. Don’t leave your care to chance.
Ridge Augmentation Procedures:
Many patients who need and desire implant dentistry unfortunately do not have adequate jaw bone for their placement. Dr. Demascus has been helping these patients with ridge augmentation procedures. Essentially Dr. Damascus re-grows the lost jaw bones for patients so that dental implants can be placed successfully. This is a service our office has been providing for patients for approximately 20 years. Dr. Demascus is a leader in this field and is asked to lecture to dental organizations and dental schools on his innovative approaches and techniques. Other implant surgeons often refer patients to Dr. Demascus for these procedures as many surgeons do not receive the same predictable results as our office. We
invite patients who desire dental implants and have been turned down by other surgeons because "you do not have enough bone”. We have provided full implant reconstructions to many of these patients and allowing them “permanent teeth” so they may discard their removable teeth and dentures. The most important time to consider bone grafting techniques is when a failing tooth needs to be removed. When a dental implant is to be considered for the replacement of a tooth that needs to be removed, the bone graft material should be placed at the time of the extraction. This allows the maintenance of the jaw bone for the future implant placement. The natural response of the jaw to an extraction is to “shrink” often making the predictable placement of an implant difficult or impossible.
Dr. Demascus has been providing expert periodontal services for his patients for more than 30 years as a specialist. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection of the gums which leads to the loss of the jaw bone holding the teeth and eventual loss of teeth. This is also the primary cause of “receding gums”. Dr. Demascus has been able to help many patients maintain poor and questionable teeth for over 25 years and far longer than promised the patient at the initiation of care. The proper diagnosis, expert surgical techniques and use of the outstanding bone graft materials has helped our patients maintain their teeth. Another growing field in Periodontics is cosmetic periodontal services for severely receded gums or thick and overgrown gums. Should you have these conditions and are unhappy with the appearance of your smile consult our services and see how we can help you. Dr. Demascus also treats many periodontal conditions with the use of a dental laser due to the enhanced results from such cutting edge technology. The laser helps correct problems not possible with conventional surgical techniques. This also helps Dr. Demascus treat patients who have a significant heart condition or are medically compromised.
Following periodontal care, maintenance therapy is very important for the long term success and survival of the teeth. The dental hygienist for the practice, Stacey Croce has been employed for more than 25 years and is an expert in the field. She has developed thousands of professional relationships with patients with her thorough and caring approach to patient care. She is an important part in maintaining patients teeth following periodontal treatment. Periodontal patients are recommended to have four maintenance visits a years seeing both our office and their general dentist office. This approach has been confirmed in the dental literature for more than 30 years and is why so many patients expectations are exceeded and are able to "keep their teeth." Stacey has been instrumental in this avenue of care.
