A BRIEF OVERVIEW: Dental implants look and function just like natural teeth.
The implant process places a titanium post (which is constructed to be compatible with the human body) into the jaw.
That post then serves as an anchor for one or more replacement teeth. Those replacement devices — crowns, bridges, or dentures — will function just like the missing teeth and blend seamlessly into your smile.
FIRST THINGS FIRST: The implant process begins with an evaluation. During this phase, we focus on ensuring that your case is a good fit for the dental implant procedure.
At Advance Dentistry, we don’t rely solely on the traditional x-rays that guide most offices. We also incorporate the use of three-dimensional CT scans. These scans — which determine the exact amount of bone available for implants — help eliminate guess work and make the implant process a more exact science.
NEXT UP: Your doctor will sit down with you to discuss the various options available. You’ll work together to determine the option that works best for you. We will then schedule the surgery procedure to place the implants.
ABOUT THE SURGERY: The duration of the actual procedure depends on how many implants will be placed. A single implant may only take an hour; multiple implants can take a few hours.
Throughout your procedure, our experienced and caring team will use I.V. sedation to make sure that you are completely comfortable.
With an amassed 55+ years of experience with sedation dentistry, the Advance Dentistry team is an acknowledged authority within our region and one of the leading providers of I.V. sedation treatment in the country.
