Dental Implants GraphicDental implants are the best way to restore missing teeth. These artificial tooth roots can be brushed and flossed around just like a regular tooth would. Their success rate is nearly 98%, making them an excellent conservative approach to replace teeth that have been extracted or are planned to be removed.

Quality Implant Therapy in a Family Practice Setting

Our dentists have completed implant-focused training and are well-versed in complex implant procedures. Even the Straumann implants that we use are the best in the industry. As such, our patients can receive treatment from start to finish in our practice, without the added price tag of going to an outside clinic.

Treatment Timelines: What to Expect

Depending on your situation, the typical start-to-finish implant case can take anywhere from 12 weeks to 5 months depending on your specific oral requirements. Installing the implant itself is a quick, quiet procedure. It’s typically far easier than most people envision.

After the surgical placement, the implant site requires about eight weeks to heal. Then, impressions are made for the final prosthesis (such as a crown, bridge or denture). About a month after, the permanent restoration is delivered. Both simple as well as complex bone grafting techniques may be performed based on individual needs. If bone grafting is needed due to structural loss, the healing process can take a few more months.

Who Is the Ideal Implant Patient?

If you have a broken tooth that can’t be restored or a tooth that has recently been extracted, an implant is usually the best way to restore your bite’s function and aesthetics. Additionally, some who have had missing teeth for several years can also benefit from the advantage of getting dental implants.

These stand-alone prosthetics function as “roots” to support fixed restorations such as

  • Single tooth crowns
  • Multiple tooth dental bridges
  • Overdentures that clip into place

Not everyone is a good candidate for the surgery. Ask for a consultation so you can explore your options before committing to any treatment. If your particular situation is more severe, we may recommend referring you to an outside practice.
