To us, you are not only a patient – you’re our neighbors, our friends and our family.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a process in which one or more titanium posts are surgically placed into the jawbone and artificial teeth are attached to that implant to replace damaged or missing teeth. Through a process called osseointegration, over time the bone in the jaw will grow and fuse to the implant making the implant extremely durable while providing a strong anchor for natural-looking artificial teeth.

3d Imaging

Single Tooth Implant

In some cases, a patient may only need a single tooth replaced and, in those instances, a crown is attached to the implant with an abutment. This is ideal for patient only needing a single tooth replaced.

All-On-Xs

All-on-Xs refer to a process in which four (or more) implants are placed in the jawbone onto which a full arch of artificial teeth made of zirconia are permanently attached. This is an ideal procedure for patients with ample bone structure who need multiple teeth replaced. Once complete, this solution looks and feels just like your natural teeth and allows you to function normally and chew all of your favorite foods with ease. Additionally, dental implants can potentially last for decades.

Technology

Cone Beam 3D Imaging

We utilize CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) imaging for each of our dental implant patients. This 3D imaging is a cutting-edge alternative to the traditional CT scan and an incredible improvement on the traditional x-ray. This machine takes 3D and digital panoramic images of your mouth, allowing us to monitor growth and diagnose problems, as well as view your entire mouth from every angle — in less than 20 seconds! We use these images to plan the precise placement of your dental implant posts to ensure the best possible fit and comfort.

Benefits of Dental Implants

The benefits of dental implants are extensive, which is why dentists often recommend implants over traditional tooth replacements such as bridge or dentures.

  • Implants look and function like natural teeth
  • A permanent solution – nothing to take in or take out!
  • Do not damage adjacent teeth or bone structure
  • Allows for normal flossing and oral home care
  • Very secure and comfortable
  • Significantly improves the ability to chew
  • Preserves bone in the jaw
  • No adhesive or powders required
  • Restores lip support
  • Helps maintain facial structure
  • Minimizes wrinkles
3D Printing

One of the most common questions we are asked regarding the implant process is what will happen during the 3 to 6 month healing process once the implant posts are placed. On the day of your implant procedure, our office prints 3D prosthetics that can be attached to the new implants, allowing you to walk out of our office with a new smile the day of your procedure!

The Dental Implant Process

 

Assessment

The process begins with an assessment of your situation to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. To complete our Dental Implant Assessment online, click HERE. Once the assessment has been submitted and reviewed, a member of our team will reach out to you.

Consultation

After your initial assessment, you will be scheduled for a consultation appointment to meet with the dentist as well as our implant coordinator. We’ll take 3D imaging to get a picture of your jawbone structure and determine if you are a candidate for implants. Our advanced imaging technology also allows the dentist create a 3D computer simulation of your mouth to determine precise placement of each implant and ensure the aesthetic and functional properties of your implants and artificial teeth. We will also discuss payment and financing options based on your individual treatment plan and needs. We understand dental implants are a significant financial investment and because we believe in their value and benefits, we have a range of options and will work with you to develop treatment and financial plans that make sense for you.

Procedure

Once you have made the decision to move forward with dental implants, we will schedule your surgery. During the implant procedure a metal post is surgically placed into the jaw, the position precisely determined by the 3D imaging from your i-CAT Cone Beam Scan. This post will act as a permanent “root” for the implanted tooth. Once in place, the surrounding bone and tissue need time to heal. Typically, the initial healing takes 7-10 days, followed by 3-6 months for the implant to fulling integrate in the bone. During the initial healing phase, patients will have a 3D printed prosthetic to serve as a temporary set of teeth, which we print on-site. Once your implant post has healed completely, you will then be fitted with the implant crown or implant-supported denture, made from zirconia.

Financing

Dental implants can be a significant expense. We will work with you to understand the costs and options associated with your individual treatment plan so you are able to make the best decision for your oral health and your finances. We offer financing through a number of organizations including Sunbit, CareCredit and Greenstate Credit Union. In addition, for larger cases we often recommend you contact the bank you do your personal banking through as they may be able to offer loan options with lower interest rates.

Sunbit

Sunbit is used by thousands of people every day to pay-over-time and is designed to approve 90% of people who apply – with fair, transparent rates and no late fees, origination fees, or penalties. Best of all, you can find out if you’re approved in less than 3 minutes when you apply. To learn more about Sunbit, ask our team or complete an application online by clicking here:

CareCredit

Our office also accepts financing through CareCredit. Unlike a regular credit card, CareCredit offers shorter term financing options of 6, 12, 18 or 24 months with no interest on purchases of $200 or more when you make the minimum monthly payments and pay the full amount due by the end of the promotional period. If you do not, interest is charged from the original purchase date. You can use CareCredit for deductibles, co-pays, coinsurance and costs for procedures not covered by insurance. And, once you’ve applied, you can use it again and again.

CareCredit also extends longer term financing for 24, 36, 48 or 60-month periods with reduced APR and Fixed Monthly Payments Required Until Paid in Full. For complete details, including interest rates and terms, see the CareCredit account agreement within the credit applications. All offers are subject to credit approval. Terms and conditions are subject to change and the practice will provide all options that are current at the time of treatment.
