Dental Implant System
Redefining Success in Implant Dentistry
If You're Missing a Tooth, You're Not Alone. An estimated 20 million people in North America suffer the physical and emotional effects of missing teeth. Our state-of-the-art dental implant technology can make a difference.
Dental Implants Provide a Second Chance at a Healthy Smile
Not only are oral health and well-being closely interrelated, but studies have shown that first impressions, self confidence and a person's character can all be correlated to their smile.
Dental Implants Restore Function, Health and Confidence
Dental implants are permanent replacements for missing teeth. They look, function and feel like healthy, natural teeth.
Dental Implants Preserve Healthy, Natural Teeth
Unlike crown and bridge treatment, dental implants do not require the alteration of adjacent natural teeth. They also prevent bone loss and the movement of natural, healthy teeth.
Dental Implants Provide Long-Term Cost Benefits
Due to the wide variety of dental implant treatment options and expanding dental insurance coverage, dental implants are a more realistic option that ever before.
Four Steps to a More Youthful Smile
- Tooth Extraction
If not already removed, the original tooth and root with be extracted. Depending on the health and size of the tooth and root, a graft procedure and short healing period may be needed before the implant is placed.
- Implant Placement
Your new dental implant (titanium tooth root) is precisely placed into the implant site. Based on your dental treatment plan, the implant restoration steps may begin immediately, or your dental implant may be completely covered by your gums for a healing period, requiring a two-stage procedure.
- Abutment and Crown Preparation
When your new dental implant is fully healed and osseointegrated, a crown and a metal post or "abutment" & that connects the crown to the implant will be created. This step includes soft-tissue contouring (for esthetics), impressions (to replicate positioning of the implant), and custom fabrication of your new abutment and crown (prosthetics).
