Implants

A long-lasting choice, implant-supported dentistry brings you as close to growing new teeth as possible. Expertly placed in the same bone that once supported teeth, you'll often enjoy the strength and function of nature. Modern porcelains produce a life-like result that may leave you completely unaware that they aren't your natural teeth. An excellent choice for one or more missing teeth, dentures can also be attached to implants. The stability and sense of confidence you develop with implants will leave you pleasantly surprised.

A custom road map for your return to full dental function when incorporating implants must guide the way. The Doctors call upon the best technology available to help plan your restorative case. Digital x-rays, 3D mapping, models, photographs and case guides prove valuable. The Doctors use highly regarded specialists as needed to bring the components of your case together. But at all times, they serve as the quarterback of the entire plan.

Implants (Surgical)

Many patients find the procedure of implant placement easier than they anticipated. Various types of sedation may fit your comfort level best, so feel free to discuss them with The Doctors. Modern dental anesthetic numbs the site, and experienced hands carefully place the implant. A tiny guide hole provides a path for threading a small implant cylinder into place. The sterile piece settles into a precise location, and a smooth cover protects the implant during the healing period.

In some cases, a temporary or permanent crown may be inserted at the time of surgery. Cases involving multiple implants often proceed the same way, with more temporary options available so you can smile confidently immediately.

Implants can't withstand normal bite forces until the bone has attached firmly to the delicate surface. The Doctors will help you decide what will work best during the initial healing period, and ensure you're still able to function while protecting your implants. This period usually lasts from 3-6 months as implants integrate into your jaw. Most patients experience minimal discomfort after placement, especially compared to tooth removal procedures.

Implants (Restorative)

Careful planning followed by implant placement sets a solid foundation for an array of restorative options.

After the healing period, crowns or bridges will be custom-made and attached to the implants with small screws or dental cement. Numerous components help The Doctors deliver the best result when completing the final stage. But it's the customization of your case from initial planning to final placement that makes all the difference. This allows a full range of services to be considered, from the replacement of one tooth to restoration of the entire mouth. Regardless of your situation, there's a solution for you.

One of Healthcare's Greatest Values

Even with all the benefits, the cost of dental implant procedures is an important consideration. When your case brings together the latest imaging, advanced training, and unique material technologies, this service offers one of the best values in modern health care. Compared to the replacement of other hard structures and joints of the body, most services with dental implants can be done at a small fraction of those costs. Better yet, most patients carry on with normal activities right away and usually enjoy a lifetime of normal chewing, bite stability, and appearance. But we know the cost of dental implants is an important part of creating a complete plan that works for you.

The cost of dental implant services involves several critical factors unique to each patient. A fee quoted without careful evaluation doesn't consider what's best for your mouth. And comparisons may not account for the difference in the quality of materials used, along with the training of the doctor performing this highly technical service. The Doctors customize treatment planning after they have spent time analyzing what would be best for each one.

One thing remains absolutely certain: You'll get the highest value possible in modern implant dentistry. That means years of natural function and a smile that's secure and makes you proud to show. We look forward to discussing how we can partner together for the best solution for you!
