Oxnard Dental Implant Experts Warn of Infections Around Dental Implants

Oxnard, CA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

Oxnard dentists, Dr. Saj Jivraj and Dr. Mamaly Reshad of the Anacapa Dental Art Institute in Oxnard and Woodland Hills, Calif., regularly give patients dental implants to replace teeth that have fallen out or been removed due to dental disease.

However, dental implants are not immune from dental disease, and the two prosthodontists (experts in restoring and replacing teeth) want the public to be aware of the risks of not using implant specialists to perform their dental work and of not caring for their implants once they are put in.

Dental implants screw into a patient’s jaw bone to anchor a prosthetic tooth, or crown, on top. But bacteria around the implant can cause peri-implant disease.

Peri-implant disease can cause inflamed gums and bone loss if not treated early.

“At Anacapa, we have a unique technique and protocol for keeping implants clean and healthy so they last longer,” Dr. Reshad said.

But patients have a responsibility, too.

Gum disease, smoking and untreated diabetes increase the risks for peri-implant disease.

Patients must also practice good dental hygiene to ensure their implants and prosthetic teeth last a lifetime.

“Dental implants require just as much care as natural teeth,” Dr. Jivraj said. “Maybe even more care.”

Dr. Jivraj and Dr. Reshad are award-winning prosthodontists. They are specialists in implant, cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. Both are former chairmen of the University of Southern California School of Dentistry’s Fixed Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry section. They also are international lecturers and published authors.

Dr. Jivraj earned his degree at the University of Manchester in his native England. He received advanced prosthodontic training at the USC School of Dentistry. He has published numerous articles on aesthetic and implant dentistry in peer-reviewed journals, and has presented on implant dentistry and advanced prosthodontic procedures nationally and internationally.

Dr. Jivraj is co-author of the textbook “Treatment Planning in Implant Dentistry,” which is used around the world. He is on the editorial board of the highly prestigious Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry, ad hoc reviewer for the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry and is associate clinical editor for Dental Teamwork magazine.

He currently holds a faculty position as an associate clinical professor at the USC School of Dentistry, clinical teacher at the Eastman Dental Institute in London and is on the board of directors for the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry.

Jivraj was voted “Best of USA” by his peers in 2008.

Dr. Reshad, a fellow prosthodontist, is an internationally known expert in restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. He has published in numerous peer-reviewed journals and textbooks on various topics related to prosthodontics, aesthetics and implant dentistry.

Dr. Reshad trained at Kings College Dental School followed by the Eastman Dental Institute in London.

Dr. Reshad is on the editorial board for the Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry. He is an honorary clinical teacher at the Eastman Dental Institute and a member of the faculty of the Global Institute for Dental Education.

The Anacapa Dental Art Institute has been offering quality dental care treatments since 1996. The team specializes in implant, prosthodontic, cosmetic and restorative dentistry. It also offers gentle dental care treatments for patients aged 50 and above.
