We are committed to keeping you safe during the Covid-19 Pandemic!

At Madison Family Dental care, we are doing everything we can to keep you safe during this difficult time. 

-Social distancing is important!  Our new protocols ensure that patients will avoid contact with each other as much as possible. Patients wait in their cars instead of in the waiting room and are met at the door by our dedicated staff when they are able to enter without coming into contact with other patients.

-We are taking our temperatures every morning….and we will take yours when you arrive!  In addition to screening ourselves for any signs of illness, we are screening every patient before they enter our operatories to make sure that they are symptom free and that they have not travelled or been in contact with anyone who is ill in the past 14 days. 

-We are keeping things clean!  We thoroughly clean and sanitize both the operatories and the office after each patient…including the front desk area, the restroom, door handles, and all other surfaces that patients might come into contact with.

-We are reducing the number of patients we see each day.  We have reorganized our schedule to ensure that we have at least 15 minutes between patients to clean and sanitize properly.  In addition, we have moved to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule to ensure that we have time between working days to thoroughly clean.   

-We are wearing personal protective equipment.  Our front office staff is masked, and Dr. Bell, his assistant, and the hygienists are equipped with N-95 masks, face shields, and full-length gowns that are changed before and after they see you.

-We are keeping the air you breath clean.  Dental procedures create aerosols that can potentially spread illness.  Because of this, it is important that we control the production of these aerosols and keep the air that you breath in our office clean.  To do this we have implemented the following:

-we have installed UV filters in our ducts

-we have converted our operatories into negative pressure rooms that are continually filtering the air. 

-We have installed Medical-grade air purifiers in each operatory and throughout the office.

-We have installed extraoral high-speed evacuators that vacuum aerosols out of the air as they are produced.

Dental Implants
 

Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth.

The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, where a screw is placed into the jaw bone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured.

The implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have temporary crowns installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.

After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. One this is placed an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration. Some offices have an onsite lab to create the crown, but others will have to send it to an outside lab. Once the restoration is completed you can return to the office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
