Am I a Candidate for an Implant
Most people with a missing tooth who are in good enough health to undergo oral surgery are candidates for an implant-supported crown. However, a common roadblock is a lack of jawbone tissue. When we lose teeth, the jawbone often thins and weakens over time. If you lack the jawbone to support an implant, you can undergo a bone graft to improve your candidacy.
In summary, individuals with a missing tooth can often opt for an implant-supported crown if they are healthy enough for surgery. When jawbone deficiency is present, a bone graft can enhance the chances of successful implant placement by augmenting the jawbone. This procedure enables patients who were previously ineligible for dental implants to have the opportunity for a restored smile and improved oral function.
What Should I Expect at My Appointment?
Treatment will typically require at least four dental visits. At the first appointment, you will meet with the dentist so he can evaluate your oral and overall health. At this time he will take a medical history, and images of your oral structure. If necessary, he may recommend a bone grafting surgery before or at the same time as your placement.
The second visit will usually be for the implant placement surgery. If any teeth need extraction, it will be done at this time. Next, a small incision is made at the gum line and a tiny access portal made into the jawbone. Through this, your dental implant is inserted. This entire implant placement process is guided by a surgical plan based on 3-D computerized tomography (CT) scans of your mouth. This allows for incredible precision in placing the implant, ensuring the least amount of trauma to surrounding tissues and optimal integration of the implant into the jawbone. Our office also offers sedation options, including nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, for your comfort.
Over the next four to six months, your dental implant will merge with the jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. As a result, the implant is backed by the strength and durability of your jawbone and essentially acts like a tooth root. After the osseointegration process is complete, you will return to have your abutments attached, which serve as a conduit between the implant and your crown. Finally, about two weeks later, you will return to have your dental crown attached.

When I embarked on my journey to find the right dental implant service, I initially gravitated towards the two prominent national brands in the field. However, my search took an unexpected and incredibly satisfying turn when I decided to explore the offerings of a local implant provider. Little did I know that this local gem would redefine my expectations of what a top-notch implant service should be like. Here's why my experience with them was nothing short of extraordinary: Meticulous Charting of Teeth and Gums: ★★★★★ One of the first things that set this local provider apart from the national giants was their unwavering commitment to precision and detail. While the big names seemed more focused on the implant procedure itself, this local gem took the time to meticulously chart the condition of my teeth and gums. This attention to detail ensured that my implant procedure was tailored to my specific needs and challenges. It was clear that they understood the importance of a solid foundation for the success of the implants. Infection Prevention Education: ★★★★★ Implant surgery is not without its risks, and one of the key concerns is the possibility of infection. What truly impressed me was the depth of information and guidance this local provider offered regarding infection prevention. They didn't just gloss over this critical aspect; they took the time to discuss the infection possibilities associated with dental implants and, more importantly, outlined a comprehensive plan to combat and mitigate such conditions. Their proactive approach to ensuring patient safety was truly reassuring. First-Year Implant Supervision: ★★★★★ Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of my experience with this local implant provider was their commitment to the long-term success of my dental implants. While the national brands seemed content with the implant procedure itself, this local provider went above and beyond by offering required supervision for the first year following the implant surgery. This level of aftercare and ongoing support was simply unparalleled and gave me peace of mind knowing that my oral health was in capable hands. In conclusion, my exploration journey for dental implants took an unexpected turn when I discovered this exceptional local implant provider. Their dedication to detail, infection prevention, and post-surgery care were nothing short of outstanding. They not only surpassed the standards set by the national brands but also redefined my expectations of what a truly exceptional implant service should encompass. If you're in search of dental implants and want an experience that goes above and beyond, I wholeheartedly recommend giving this local gem a visit. They've certainly earned my trust and gratitude.

Morgan is the best! I hadn’t been to the dentist in 10+ years and was nervous even though I’d always been a fan of the dentist (weird I know). Morgan explained her recommendations, how the plan would work and set me up with my various appointment needs. She always remembers details of my life and asks about specific things mentioned previously. She’s wonderful and a great asset to Smiles for Life!
