Benefits of Dental Implants

Improved appearance – Dental implants are a great solution to missing teeth because they look, feel and function like your own teeth. They are also one of the only permanent dental restorations because they are designed to fuse with the bone present in your mouth.
Improved comfort – A dental implant fuses with the bone and becomes a part of you. They resolve issues that occur from missing teeth any avoid discomfort associated with other restorative procedures.
Improved speech – With spaces and gaps present, it can sometimes cause mumbling or slurred speech. Dental implants allow you to speak without this worry.
Easier eating – Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat with confidence and without pain.
Improved oral health – Dental implants don’t require the adjustment of other teeth or the removal of tooth structure unnecessarily. In cases of a bridge more of your own teeth are compromised. This can lead to a more challenging prognosis for long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth for improved ability to floss and clean between and around your mouth.
Durability – Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, it’s possible for implants to last a lifetime.

How it Works

  • Consultation – Call our office for a free consultation. One of our dentists will meet with you and take several x-rays of the area (free of charge) to analyze needs. They may also take a cone beam x-ray to gain a better idea of your overall dental health and what the status of the bone is so that a comprehensive analysis of your prognosis can be made and so that the best course of treatment can be designed.
  • Treatment Plan – Our dentist and treatment planner will create a custom treatment plan to help resolve your dental issues.
  • Schedule an Appointment – Our office team will schedule an appointment at your convenience.
  • Payment – At the beginning of your appointment you will meet with our treatment planner to discuss payment options. Financing is available in many cases.
  • Implant Placement – Placing a single implant will generally take 30-60 minutes. Bone grafts, extractions, or sinus lifts may require additional fees and time.
  • Post Op Appointment – A week after the implant placement one of our dentists will make sure everything is healing correctly and remove the sutures.
  • Placing Abutment & Crown – The crown will generally be created and placed about 6 months after the implant. The implant will be uncovered in one short appointment and then a followup appointment to insert the final crown will be approximately 4 weeks following. The dentist will make sure the final result is comfortable and looks natural.
