Why Does A Dental Patient Stay With The Same Dentist For Over 30 Years?

Why Does A Dental Patient Stay With The Same Dentist For Over 30 Years?
I am EVELYN M. BARTOLOME, a businesswoman and resident of Pasig and Makati City, and a U.S. immigrant. I am under the dental care of Dr. ERLINDA DYSON since I was in my late 30s.

I am now 64 years old, and I have not tried shifting to other dentists for my dental care for the following reasons: she is very precise in her dental diagnosis and judgement because of her years of training and practice here in the Philippines and in the United States.

She maintains a very professional conduct and profiles which manifest in her being very accommodating and timely with her patients in addressing their dental concerns. She presents and maintains a very reputable state-of-the-art clinic located at the prestigious Century City at the heart of Makati.

She offers very reasonable charging on the procedures she is serving her patients; and on top of all, her excellence in dental practice is not just baked-up by frames on the wall, but by the words coming from patients that she had served through the years.

I hereby attest to the truth of the above-mentioned statements.

Why You Should Consider Dental Implants

Why You Should Consider Dental Implants

For most people, dental implants are not entirely new – it is a way of restoring lost teeth. While it is uncommon, there are still a few cases of lost teeth in adults. The need for dental restoration is a bit on the high side recently. According to the statistics from the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, about 69% of adults of ages 35 to 44 have lost not less than a tooth. And the popular causes of these losses include accidents, failed root canals, tooth decay, or gum diseases. Accidents that lead to loss of teeth might be rare, but cases of dental fractures and advanced gum decay or diseases are quite common.

One of the feasible solutions in these situations is to undergo a dental implant.



Eximus Dental Dental-Implants-1 Why You Should Consider Dental Implants

Dental Implants

We can define dental implants to be: “…posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth. They are made of titanium and other materials easily accepted by the human body.”

Moving forward, implants can come in four different forms based on the peculiarity of the situation. The first type is designed to replace a single tooth; the second replace several teeth in a row; the third one replaces multiple teeth around existing ones; the fourth/last is designed to offer support to a complete set of dentures. The fourth type is more specific for individuals seeking dentures since they get more benefits from this full denture implant that are not available in traditional dentures.

Dental Implants vs. Dentures

Dentures, over time, has offered means of eating, talking, and appearances that seem like the natural teeth, even if there are only two or one original teeth present in the denture set. Despite these great benefits, dentures can lead to discomfort for many that use them. Just like a retainer, a denture also sits in the mouth, and there is no means of holding it firmly in place. Yes, dentures offer a good short-term solution in some cases, there are also a couple of adverse effects that come with their usage.

The fragile and infirm nature of dentures means you cannot consume some foods, and slipping dentures inhibits clear speeches. Generally, implants are more durable than dentures, because the latter need additional maintenance and/or periodic replacements. However, implants are relatively costlier, but offer a more comfortable, durable, secure alternative, with a natural appearance.

Who is eligible for an implant?

Not everyone can get dental implants. Patients with a history of severe illnesses or infections like leukemia or diabetes are not fit for implants. The same goes for tobacco users; they may not heal properly from the implant processes. For these sets of individuals, considering other alternatives is highly recommended. However, if you have been cleared by your dentist as fit for implants, and you feel comfortable undergoing one, you will find it as a worthy investment that offers impressive gains of functional and beautiful teeth.

A prerequisite for an all-on-4 implant is the total loss of all your teeth in a dental arch on the bottom or top or having several teeth with severe pains and issues. In cases where you are missing just one or two teeth, and the remaining teeth are healthy, small bridges or individual implants are the best options.

Benefits of Dental Implants

The greatest advantage of a dental implant is that it fixes many current and future dental problems at the same time. The need to replace lost or damaged teeth comes in three levels:

  1. To ensure that exposed gums, caused by the damaged or lost teeth, don’t lead to further decay or damage caused by the exposed gums.
  2. To ensure that the absence of the lost or damaged teeth does not lead to an improper bite adjustment, which could be painful or facilitate the decay or damage of the nearby tooth.
  3. To ensure that the patient regains full function of the teeth in the shortest possible time, so that he or she can speak, chew, and smile effortlessly.

When you consider the ability of dental implants to offer permanent solutions to these problems, you will see that it is the best option on the list.

The Future of Regenerative Medicine

Written by Dr. Erlinda M. Dyson DMD

For over a Century we have witnessed breakthroughs in Modern Medicine that rivals our own imagination, from the invention of Penicillin – the world’s first antibiotic, to today’s restorative and regenerative treatments in all fields of medicine from 3d printed organs and tissue, we revisit health extension with promising technologies that may reshape the future of medicine.

Stem cell research is one technology that has taken great strides over the last few years, concentrated with a medical centrifuge stem cells can be collected as well as other regenerative and supportive cells such as leukocytes, cytokines, megakaryocytes, platelets/thrombocytes, and fibrin, this concentrate of stem cells, platelets, and fibrin is the foundation of all forms of Autologous Hemobiologic treatments, this technology is further refined with a “medifuge”, a specialized medical centrifuge designed to alter centrifugation and drastically improve results, which gave rise to numerous regenerative techniques that are now used in various medical applications from skin grafts, hair restoration, anti-aging therapy, soft-tissue regeneration, sinus regeneration, and accelerated bone regeneration, breaking records in healing times and reducing patient trauma with non-invasive procedures.


Brief History of Modern Bone Regeneration Techniques      –


Bone grafts were once the only method for rebuilding bone in specific areas of the body, this requires surgery in which bone is collected from the hip or jaw and transplanted to a desired site, this poses some health risks and trauma and has been reported to be moderately unsuccessful due either to rejection, infection, or simple biology – hip bone has its own DNA that tells it what it is, when it is transplanted to the jaw the body will know and will return most of the bone back to the hip, in most cases the amount of grafted bone that remains over a one year period rarely exceed 30%, at which more bone grafts would be necessary to reach the optimal height and width to accept dental implant surgery, in many cases it is necessary to graft more bone than is actually needed because of the expected bone resorption accompanied by old fashioned bone graft surgery, this traumatizes the patient as well as potentially compromising the structural integrity of the grafted hip bone and is considered invasive by today’s standards.


Eventually this technique would be superseded by “Bone Regeneration” which takes advantage of freeze-dried deproteinized bone granules or cubes in the form of Allograft and Bovine bone, one offering better resorbability and the other offering better scaffolding support and they are often used in tandem, the harvested bone is deproteinized in advance to prevent biological rejection as well as any possibility of HIV transmission, and later on synthetic bone regeneration which uses artificial bone was introduced, all of which haveproperties that make them invaluable to modern bone regeneration treatments even today

And more recently Autologous Tissue/Bone regeneration technologies have been developed, the current techniques for different applications are PRP(platelet rich plasma), PRF(platelet rich fibrin), PRGF(platelet rich growth factor) CGF(concentrated growth factor), with CGF having the highest concentrations of stem cells and fibrin in several controlled studies, the technology as well as its offshoot “Sticky-bone” is currently the most effective in dental restoration treatments.

CGF(concentrated growth factor) is a fairly new medical technique that has the highest concentration of stem cells and fibrin and has no chance of biological rejection, it encourages tissue and bone regeneration via osteoinduction, a process by which osteogenesis is induced that attracts immature cells and the stimulation of these cells to develop into preosteoblasts, it can be used to heal soft tissue such as the sinus membrane, incisions of the gum, as well as muscles like the cheeks and tongue with significantly improved healing time, and can be used in place of collagen membranes, it is primarily used to restore bone density and health over a shorter period than traditional bone-grafts.

its offshoot “sticky-bone” uses CGF technology with Allograft or Bovine Bone to form an Autologous Hemobiologic Super-bone that can osseointegrate two to three times faster than current bone regeneration techniques with an incredibly high success rate due to its intimacy with the patient’s body, having no chance of biological rejection and little chance of infection, sticky-bone has been used by dental implantologists in seemingly impossible ways such as being used to enclose a largely exposed side of an implant during surgery with cohesive osteoinduction occurring within a 3 to 4 month period over the usual 6 months to 1 year in normal dental implant patient cases, however because the technology is still new the results as well as recovery time between patients may vary.


  • CGF/Sticky-bone Treatment Technical Description      –credit to Prof. Dong-Seok Sohn DDS, PhD

  • Introduction      –

Implant supported dental restorations have become a major option in the treatment of edentulous alveolar ridge for the past several decades. Extensive loss of alveolar bone presents a complex challenge for reconstruction. Numerous augmentation techniques are currently in use to create sufficient bone volume for reliable placement of endosseous implants in severely resorbed edentulous alveolar ridges. In order to accelerate healing of bone graft over the bony defect, numerous techniques utilizing platelet and fibrinogen concentrations have been introduced in the literature. Platelet is known to contain high quantities of growth factors, such as transforming growth factors ß-1 (TGFß-1), platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), epithelial growth factor (EGF), insulin growth factor-I (IFG-I) and vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF), which stimulates cell proliferation and up regulates angiogenesis. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is the first form of autologous platelet concentrate to replace commercial fibrin glue. Small amount of PRP is prepared in dental office for use in clinical implant dentistry. Numerous PRP kits, such as the Platelet Concentrated Collection System (PCCS; 3i/ Implant Innovations, Palm Beach Gardens, FL)

If you have ever experienced the loss of one or more of your teeth due to a number of reasons like an accident, dental cavities, or any other reason for that matter, the fact is it’s going affect your dental health in many ways and of course your smile.

If it happens to be one of your front teeth this may affect areas of your speech, in many everyday situations you may feel rather self-conscious and want to hide what would normally be a warm confident smile, that portrays that you are happy and relaxed with your appearance.

After all, a truly genuine smile makes everyone feel good and shows the world we are happy within ourselves…

If you have lost your back teeth (molars), this may affect your ability to chew your food properly, we all love good food and of we can’t sit down to enjoy our favorite foods it can take away one of our basic everyday pleasures in life.

In addition, if one or more teeth are missing this may cause the other existing teeth migrate and drift in other directions leading to even more additional dental health problems and or the worsening of existing conditions. This can occur even in the absence of single tooth.

However, the good news is modern dentistry can offer many options to replace your lost teeth and restore your dental health and confidence. Out of the many procedures, you may be aware of some of the following treatments:

  • Removable dentures (complete or partial)
  • Fixed replacements,
  • Porcelain bridges
  • Dental implants to suit your varied needs

Let’s take a look a number of these procedures in greater detail as it may help you to discover the advantages and disadvantages of each treatment and act as a guide to what course of treatment could be right for you.

Removable Partial Dentures

Removable partial dentures can get support from the existing bones and gums. One advantage is the cost of the treatment as in some cases it can be quite affordable. The downside side is they can be bulky and sometimes rather heavy. 

Eximus Dental 2018-04-14_1829 Dental Implants Vs. Dentures, Bridges

Due to this fact they can therefore interfere or directly affect your speech in general. Also, you may find your ability to chew and enjoy your food properly may be hindered.


A Complete Set Of Dentures (removable) 

A complete set of removable dentures can replace a number or all your teeth both upper and lower. However please bear in mind in many cases they may need to be replaced after a few years due to bones and gum recession and resorption. The reason for this is gums tend to shrink as they heal and this can make the complete denture as a whole loose fitting. When a set of dentures are loose it can again cause problems with chewing and speech and eventually, this can cause bone loss, the bones which in turn can later become completely flat. The reason for this is because naturally the bones and gums reabsorb the loss of a tooth almost immediately.

Eximus Dental 2018-04-14_1837 Dental Implants Vs. Dentures, Bridges

That’s why after you lose a tooth it’s necessary to have a bone graft on the bone socket should be performed immediately in order to grow some additional bone structure. So it’s important to highlight that If you have lost one tooth on the upper arch, and it is not restored immediately, the opposing tooth it in the lower arch will have a tendency to grow elongated as there’s no opposing upper tooth to stop it from doing so.

We have to understand that teeth are continuously moving in the dental arches and for this reason, the best course of action is to restore the lost tooth or teeth as soon as possible, in order to prevent further complications in the future.



Fixed Bridge

A fixed bridge is cemented to your natural teeth (post or abutment) and has to be carved out to create space for artificial teeth to be cemented in place. The number of posts or abutments will depend on the number of missing teeth that need to be replaced.

Once the fixed bridge is in place it is important to note that proper dental hygiene and cleanliness habits have to be performed in order so the abutments don’t fit some in cavities from the consumption of food and drink.

Also in some cases, the abutments would need in addition root canal treatment if they develop cavities and becomes painful.

Eventually, over time the bridges will need to be replaced because as already discussed the bones and gums will still continue to recede and reabsorb immediately after the tooth or teeth have been lost. As the replacement teeth and also the bridge (along with the other types of dentures)  just lie on top of your gums and bones that have already receded will continue to shrink more.

Dental Implants

In modern times with the advancements in dental technology, it is widely thought that dental implants really are the best possible option available for teeth that have been lost, as they not only replace the teeth that have been lost but also the bones.

The dental implant industry has continued to evolve over recent years and continues to do so, to the point where it now provides patients with the best and most permanent solution to missing teeth and dental issues.

The reasons for this are very clear and that’s why nowadays it’s the most logical choice for those who wish to lead normal lives with excellent dental health.

Why are dental implants the best possible cause of treatment? Well, the list is endless, however, let’s cover a number of the advantages and health benefits.

In the first instance, dental implants are incredibly strong and durable,  while alleviating the vast number of dental issues due to missing teeth or dental problems we have covered so far.  Also, they can replace one tooth, several teeth and even full teeth of teeth in upper and lower arch.

Eximus Dental 2018-04-14_1925 Dental Implants Vs. Dentures, Bridges

In the first instance the treatment consists of placing a titanium implant root into the jawbone and in general, the initial healing period for this part of the procedure tends to be about 2 to 6 months. From there the artificial tooth (or teeth) is placed into the titanium implant root

Eximus Dental 2018-04-14_1929 Dental Implants Vs. Dentures, Bridges

Naturally, the costs involved with dental implant treatment can vary considerably as one has to take into consideration the current state of a patients dental health and potentially what course of treatment (if any) may be required before the implants procedure can take place.

Also, a number of other factors need to be taken into consideration related to the overall costs of dental implants, as there is an ever-growing number of materials and technologies that can be used for your new teeth.

The great news is you can choose from a wealth of options in order to weigh up each of their advantages and costs involved with the completed procedure.

One thing we can say with confidence is that after specializing for many years in the field of dental implants you like all our patients will find your dental health is restored along with a new sense of self-confidence, and of course let’s not forget that winning smile!
