The process of getting dental implants

Dr. Sofen begins with a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical and dental history, and a full clinical examination of the entire mouth and missing tooth area.  The clinical exam should also include specific X-rays.

After assessing the patient, a comprehensive treatment plan can be devised.  From that point, implants are surgically placed in the jawbone under local anesthesia.

The length of the healing time is based on the quality and quantity of bone, as well as the type of implant placed.  After adequate healing is allowed to occur, the implant can be used to support a crown, bridge, or denture.

For more answers about dental implants call us at 734 427 8111.


The procedure for a root canal

A root canal procedure limits the infection and keeps it from destroying the tooth.  During the root canal treatment procedure, the dentist removes the inflamed or infected tissue, carefully cleans, disinfects, and shapes the root canal space inside the tooth, and then fills and seals this space.

It may take one or more appointments to complete the procedure.  A protective restoration should be placed after root canal treatment has been completed in order to restore the tooth to function and help prevent tooth fracture.

At Andrew Sofen DDS we think of a root canal as washing the invasive bacteria out of the root, filling it with a biocompatible material that soothes the area, then sealing it back up again.  Top it off with a solid filling or a crown, and you're as good as new.

That means you get to keep your tooth. And that's a good thing.

For more information about how we at Andrew Sofen DDS can help you with your root canal problems, call us at (888) 488-2541, we will be happy to talk with you.


Pregnancy and gum disease

Many mothers have experienced gum disease, dental pain and/or tooth extraction during or shortly after their pregnancy.  This is often seen as being a "normal" side effect of being pregnant.  However we feel that dental disease, which is an infection of the teeth and/or gums, is not "normal" for any patient.

There are three basic events that happen during pregnancy which make the patient more susceptible to dental disease. First, hormonal changes may make the gums more susceptible to gum disease.


Gingivitis - The most common periodontal disease

Gingivitis is the most common periodontal disease, affecting 90% of the population, including our local Livonia area community.  It is an infection of the gums caused by bacteria that form plaque.
