At one point in time, if you lost a tooth it was pretty much gone for good. Even after the invention of dentures, a missing tooth still presented problems and your dental options were still rather limited.
That was then. This is now. You don’t have to struggle with ill-fitting dentures or need to undergo expensive bone grafts to get natural looking, fully functional teeth any more. Advanced dental implants can provide you with a safe, effective and long-lasting way to create your ideal smile.
Dental implants come in several varieties but all are basically composed of two parts: a titanium root and a porcelain crown. The titanium shaft is implanted into the bone of your jaw. This provides a strong foundation that can then support the man-made porcelain crown section of your new tooth.
Depending on the procedure, the crown is then melded to the new titanium shaft, often in a single visit. This means that you can literally walk out smiling, sporting a full set of beautiful replacement teeth on the same day.
In fact, we frequently place your new titanium implant into the fresh socket after removing a damaged tooth in order to ensure faster healing times. Additionally, we employ a combination of advanced procedures including the use of lasers and 3-D imaging to ensure a comfortable, permanent implant/restoration experience.
We take the time to plan out your procedure (including detailed mock-ups, wax-ups and 3-D study models based on your unique bone and facial structure) before we begin. This ensures the smoothest possible procedure for you.
This advanced planning really pays off because most of our patients require only a local anesthetic. Our results speak for themselves. Over 98% of our implants are successful the first time around. Find out more about the way we are changing the patient experience for the better.
