Our patients are very lucky here at Aristo Dental.  Dr. Sandra Aristodemo is certified through the California Implant Institute to place implants in our offices.  This training is above and beyond her degree in dentistry and it provides our patients with an option to have all their implant work done in the friendly offices of their general dentist.

This week, Dr. Sandra performed an immediate extraction, placement of artificial bone, and an immediate implant on a patient of ours.  We would like to share that experience with you:

From the American Academy of Implant Dentistry:

  • More than 30 million Americans are missing all their teeth in one or both jaws
  • 15 million people in the U.S. have crown and bridge replacements for missing teeth
  • 3 million have implants and that number is growing by 500,000 a year
  • 10 percent of all US dentists place implants but that is increasing
  • The success rate of dental implants has been reported in scientific literature as 98 percent
  • Implants performed by US dentists………………………..5,505,720 (2006)
  • Implants performed by US general dentists……………….3,103,930 (2006)

If you are missing teeth, or if you would like more information about dental implants, please be sure to ask us.
