Dental Implants

Dental Implant X-rayTechnology has changed many aspects of our daily life. From the way we make phone calls to the way we shop, almost everything can be done more easily thanks to technological advancements. We can’t always say that new technology improves the way we do things, but when it comes to the many innovations in the dental field, the words new and improved both apply. The introduction of techniques and technologies necessary to create and place dental implants offers us a new and improved way to replace lost teeth. This versatile tooth replacement solution is unique in that it restores both the root and crown of missing teeth. Traditional tooth replacements like fixed bridges and dentures only restored the part of the tooth visible above the gum line, leaving patients without the necessary dental support and stimulation they need to maintain the optimal level of oral health. Today, the dental implant supported tooth replacement process is continuing to improve, and many dentists consider it the gold standard in tooth replacement.

Consultation & Treatment Planning

Before beginning any treatment plan, the Distinguished Dental team will schedule a consultation. No treatment is right for every patient, so we’ll review your oral health and past medical and dental history to make sure a dental implant retained tooth replacement plan is right for you. If you decide to move forward with dental implant tooth replacement, we’ll walk you through the entire process, schedule your treatment appointments, and outline the out of pocket costs associated with treatment.

Dental Implant Placement

For the first phase of the dental implant process, we partner with a trusted local oral surgeon. These skilled practitioners place a small incision in the gums. Then, the implant post is precisely positioned, and a protective cap is attached over the top of the post. Once the implant post is in position, patients need to wait three to six months to allow the implant to fuse with the gum and bone tissue, mimicking the function of natural tooth roots.

Dental Restoration

Once the dental implant post has fully fused with the gum tissue and jawbone, you’ll return to our office, so we can place your replacement tooth or teeth. In most cases, we’ll recommend the following dental restorations:
