Our doctors offer traditional implants, single-stage implants, and Teeth-in-a-Day. Single-stage implants only require a healing process of about six weeks before the restoration can be attached. With Teeth-in-a-Day, patients who qualify can have implants and the restoration placed in a single visit.
Implant-supported dentures can restore the appearance and function of your smile after significant tooth loss. These restorations are affixed to dental implants, which are embedded in the jawbone. Implant-supported dentures can improve your oral health, confidence, and quality of life.
An implant-supported bridge may be recommended if you have adjacent missing teeth. It can also help to distribute the force of a restoration over more than one dental implant. Typically, one implant is placed in the jawbone to replace each missing tooth.
The cost for the most basic dental implant procedure is $1,550, which does not include the permanent abutment or the restoration. The cost can increase considerably if you require preliminary procedures and require a larger restoration.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are embedded in the jawbone. They are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement, as they provide unrivaled support for crowns, bridges, and dentures. Our doctors provide comprehensive care and can perform all stages of implant treatment.
After tooth loss, your jawbone can begin to deteriorate. If you are interested in dental implants but do not have enough bone tissue to support implant posts, a bone graft or sinus lift can restore your candidacy. A graft improves bone density and a sinus lift creates sufficient space for implants.
After placing dental implants, it is common to experience mild swelling, irritation, and discomfort. To alleviate side effects, we can provide detailed at-home care instructions. We recommend getting plenty of rest for the first few days, as well as eating soft foods and avoiding strenuous exercise.
After placing dental implants, your body will undergo a natural process called osseointegration. During this three to six month period, the dental implant will fuse with surrounding jawbone tissue to become a permanent part of your anatomy. This stage is integral to successful treatment.
Risks of Dental Implants
Our doctors only perform implant placement on patients who are good candidates. This minimizes the risk for potential complications. Some possible risks include post-operative pain and infection, injury to adjacent teeth or soft tissue, or failure of the implant to properly fuse with the bone.
Our doctors are highly trained in same-day dental implants, which enable them to restore missing teeth in as little as one appointment. Our office has access to the most advanced technology for precise placement and predictable results.
A missing tooth affects both the appearance and function of your smile. In the past, the only option for replacing a single missing tooth was a traditional dental bridge. Now you can replace the entire structure of your tooth with a crown supported by a dental implant for improved oral health.
If you are not a candidate for dental implants due to tissue loss in your jaw, we can perform a bone grafting procedure to improve the density of your jawbone. Our team can perform several types of bone grafts, including sinus lifts, so you can experience the benefits of dental implants.
