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 surgeon first replaces the root with a small dental implant.
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 to bring it up through the gums. A new replacement tooth (crown) is then placed on top of the abutment by your general dentist.
Surgical Advances in Dental Implants
Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, growth factors, and bone grafting, Dr. Nizam, Dr. Goehring and Dr. Jackson are able to place immediate implants at the time of tooth extraction . In some cases in the anterior aesthetic region, a temporary tooth may also be placed on the implant. We make it our goal at Alabama Surgical Arts to decrease treatment times, decrease pain, and increase predictably. All of this is completed will you are asleep so there is no pain, anxiety, or fear.
Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Drs. Nizam, Goehring or Jackson performs the actual 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.

Outstanding! Had an Extraction and implant the same day... with ZERO pain. Three days post OP and still haven't needed to take anything for pain management.

Can't say that I enjoyed my visit - who ever does enjoy going to the dentist - but each visit has been done on a very professional basis. So I guess you can say that, yes, I enjoyed my visit.

I can across dr. Sami Nizam by coincidence after seeing 4 other oral surgeons that couldn’t even explain to me what is wrong w my teeth. All I got was the estimate on the cost. When I met dr. Sami Nizam he took his time to explain to me what was the issue, showed me the pics n shortly after he did total of 4 surgeries on my teeth including the plastic surgery on my gums to cover all the scars. He always checked on me after the surgery if I’m doing ok. Thanks to him I have my beautiful smile back. Than I found out he does fillers so I had him do my lips. He’s very knowledgeable doctor. I highly recommend.
