Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that restore your bite pattern and oral health. Implant-supported restorations consist of an implant post, an abutment, and artificial teeth. They are the only restorations that replace your entire tooth from root to crown. The implant post also performs the vital function that your natural tooth root does and stimulates your jaw, which prevents bone loss and preserves your facial structure.
We can replace any tooth with a custom implant-supported crown, multiple teeth with an implant-supported bridge, or an entire arch of teeth with our custom implant-supported dentures. If you're missing your entire bottom, top, or both arches of teeth, then we perform an exam to determine if you qualify for All-on-4® dental implants. Regardless of the number or type of teeth you need, our custom dental implants are reliable and look like your natural smile.
Our friendly team uses modern technology and techniques to create a pleasant experience and maximize your comfort throughout your dental restoration journey. We know that advanced technology and techniques promote faster healing, improve the efficiency of the procedure, and maximize your comfort. That is why all of our dental implant surgeries are preplanned, and we used computer-guided surgery to place the implant post with the highest accuracy for the greatest stability.
We use a 3D cone beam scanner to identify the best placement and any underlying issues that need to be addressed before the implant post is placed, such as an extraction or a bone graft. This information helps us build a complete picture of your oral health and craft a treatment plan that encompasses your specific needs.
Our team uses Nobel Biocare™ implants to renew the functionality of your bite and the brilliance of your smile. These implants have an innovative and reliable design, from the material used to the shape of the implant post and the abutment. We will sit down with you and discuss the multiple benefits these implants offer, including how they safely and effectively fuse with your jaw and create a cohesive and healthy environment to boost your oral health. You can trust that we have carefully planned every step of your dental implant procedure, and we will provide the information you need so you share our confidence in the treatment and materials used to restore your smile.
Selecting a team to craft your new smile is an important part of your smile restoration process. Our compassionate team takes the time to get to know you and asks questions to fully understand your needs and smile goals. We believe that a professional and personal relationship built on trust is integral to quality dental care.
Our dental implant process begins with a thorough and gentle exam of your teeth, gums, and jaws, complete with precise and detailed measurements to ensure your custom restoration fits comfortably. We will discuss the results of the exam with you and your treatment options before creating a treatment plan that is tailored to you and your specific needs and lifestyle. If you require any pretreatments such as an extraction or a bone graft, then we will include these in your plan.
The dentist will place your implant post based using computer-guided surgery for optimal placement. This titanium post is permanent and provides a stable base for your crown, bridge, or dentures. Once you have healed from the procedure to place the implant post, we will attach your custom dental restoration. We will carefully check the fit to ensure it feels natural and blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. Then we will provide instructions and tips to maintain your restoration and you will leave our dental office ready to show off your new smile.
We encourage you to share your questions and concerns, and we are happy to provide the answers you need to make an informed decision regarding your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental implants.
How painful is getting a dental implant?
Dental implants are custom-made to fit comfortably in your dental arch. You may experience some discomfort during the surgery to place the implant post, but our team will numb the area before the procedure to maximize your comfort and peace of mind.
How long do teeth implants last?
The implant post is permanent because it fuses with your jawbone. Your dental crown, bridge, or denture can last for 10-15 years when properly cared for. If your prosthetic tooth is compromised or damaged, then we will create a new custom restoration for you.
How many teeth do you get with All-on-4 implants?
All-on-4 dental implants restore your full arch of teeth. You can choose these implant-supported dentures for your bottom, top, or both arches.
