Dental Implant

Did you know that dental implants have been traced back to the Mayans in 600 AD? Dental implants were in the form of shells replacing the missing tooth. Dental implants started to become more common in the 1950s with the discovery of titanium fusing to the bone. Today’s dental implants have come a long way and come in different shapes and sizes to give a more natural look and feel.

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant replaces the missing root with a metal post that will be inserted into your jawbone to which an artificial tooth (crown) is placed on an attachment to the dental implant (abutment). This artificial tooth is made to look like your natural tooth.
Why me?
Missing a tooth is more common than you would think. Tooth loss could be caused by tooth decay, periodontal disease, injury to the mouth or even an adult tooth not forming. Whatever the reason for your missing tooth, bridges and crowns are no longer the only option to replace the tooth. Dental implants are the more natural-looking way to get your smile back. With the advancement in dentistry, dental implant surgery has become one of the safest dental procedures. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, an estimated 3 million people in the United States has a dental implant.
What to expect with a dental implant?
To begin the process of getting a dental implant, you will need to get x-rays to determine your bone and gum health. An impression of your mouth or extraction of the existing tooth may need to be done. The next step would be the placement of the dental implant into your jawbone. The length of this procedure will vary with each individual but could average 1 to 2 hours. The amount of time the jawbone heals will depend on how long the dental implant takes to fuse to the jawbone. Once the dental implant is stable, an abutment is attached to the dental implant. The dentist then attaches the new permanent tooth (crown) to the abutment.
Overall discomfort level during the dental implant process depends on each individual’s tolerance but is said to be minimal. Soft foods will be your friend during the recovery process!

Very confused by the website and advertising as an after hour/emergency dental service. I broke a tooth this evening and was looking for emergency dental services for the earliest appointment. I called and a receptionist/operator picked up on a Friday evening close to 8 p.m. and said that the emergency dental service was only for existing patients. That isn't on the website and in fact, the top line on the website states if you need emergency dental care , call. Don't mind that they aren't able to see me, but the operator needs a better script when explaining their services and should also provide better service or don't be an after hour receptionist. She also never asked me if I WAS an existing patient. Would love to give no stars, but I can't post unless I pick one. UPDATE: So wasn't expecting the owner of the practice to call me. I spoke with Dr. Dalla and he explained in detail their policies and calmed my anxiety regarding my broken tooth.. I appreciate that he is a business owner that pays attention to what is being said about his practice and would take the time to follow up. I may have found a new dentist.

I’ve been searching for a dental office for my special needs daughter for a long time. I called many offices explaining her situation that she had Autism and anxiety and I was told they didn’t see special needs kids. I came across Ora Dentistry through my google search and gave them a call explained to them my situation and they told me they’d be happy to see her. We scheduled an appointment. On the day of the appointment I called again and explained her situation and told them she would like her sister and mom to be there for support due to her anxiety and they were totally accommodating and that put me at ease. We got to our appointment and were greeted by Bridgette she was AMAZING with my daughter she made her feel SUPER comfortable through out the entire process! I’ve never seen my daughter so calm and relaxed. When the doctor came in to do his exam on her he too was beyond nice and again made my daughter feel at ease. I really have to thank Ora dentistry for their excellent service! If you have a special needs child this is the place to go! Highly recommend it!

Two years ago I visited this office to assess the viability of getting an implant for a lost tooth. On that first visit Dr. Dalla had x-rays taken, made the assessment, provided me with options, including performing an implant on a lost back molar. I consented, and right then and there, he performed the actual implant and gave me a return appointment to insure all was healing well. Then, 3 months later, he fitted me with the abutment and took impressions for the crown. Two weeks after that the crown was installed. Not only was the work done in record time, but it has been the best fitting crown I've ever had, and I've had 18 crowns in my lifetime of 68 years. This was my second implant. My first implant was by another dental office and does not come close to compare with Dr. Dalla's work. His implant and crown feel like healthy, natural teeth, and in fact, I chew most of my food using that new "molar." I wish I would have gone to him long ago. By far the best around. He is a perfectionist, and is demanding of himself. Just what you should want in someone performing your dental work. Highest recommendations!
