There’s No Need to Live Life Without Teeth

We’ve helped many patients over the years realize the smile of their dreams. Our objective is to give you back the beautiful smile and strong bite you want. To do that, we use advanced technology like a CT scanner and 3-D printer to create surgical guides for precise placement of your implants. This equipment helps ensure you get the results you want.

If you tend to get nervous at the dentist, we offer oral conscious sedation in pill form. It will keep you relaxed throughout your dental implant procedure.

We have several ways to restore smiles with implants:

  • Single Implant-Crown Combination – For one missing tooth, this is the best way to get your bite back. We’ll place a dental implant, then top it with a natural-looking dental crown.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – This bridge restores several missing teeth in a row. It anchors to at least two implants for strength and durability. Unlike a conventional bridge, we won’t have to remove any healthy structure from your surrounding teeth.
  • Implant-Retained Dentures – Your dentures will stay put thanks to a system of snaps and balls attached to implants.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – We’ll anchor your dentures to a sturdy metal bar that is in turn attached to teeth implants.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that serve as artificial teeth roots when you’ve lost one or more teeth. We insert them into your jawbone, where they will integrate with your bone and become a sturdy base for replacement teeth. Your dental implant restoration options include crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Do dental implants hurt?

Having a dental implant placed is not painful because your jaw will be numbed, and you can stay completely relaxed with dental sedation throughout the procedure. Once you go home, you might require pain relievers for a day or two, but most of our patients report only taking over-the-counter medication following their dental implant procedure. Most feel well enough to return to work the day after.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants varies, depending mainly on how many implants you receive. In some cases, you may also need another procedure, like a tooth extraction or bone grafts, to prepare for implants. We’ll discuss cost with you during the planning stage of your implant procedure, so you know exactly what to expect.
