Experience A New Confidence With Dental Implants

Missing Teeth? Dental Implants Provide Life-Changing Results.

Dental implants are the best tooth-replacement option if you’re missing one tooth or many. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. You’ll have no worries about chewing or talking when you choose dental implants. You take care of them the same as you would your natural teeth, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime.

Many people who fail to replace missing teeth or replace them with dentures experience jawbone loss. Dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone to provide stimulation and a full, youthful appearance. If you’re missing a tooth or teeth, choose dental implants.

Dental Implants Options For A Rejuvenated Smile

Full Arch Dental Implants

Full arch dental implants are for those who need all their teeth on the top or bottom replaced and have adequate jawbone dentistry. Instead of getting a single implant per tooth, we use four implants and a high-quality prosthesis to replace 14 teeth. Your jawbone supports the implants. The implants stimulate your jawbone for a youthful appearance and comfort when chewing. Full arch dental implants are permanent. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are similar to full arch dental implants, except the prosthesis (artificial teeth) are removable, and you have the option to replace only a few teeth as opposed to an entire arch. If you’re looking for a lower-cost alternative to full arch dental implants, implant-supported dentures are the way to go.

 

Mini Implants

There are situations when you might not have enough jawbone for a regular dental implant. Instead of getting a bone graft, mini implants could be your golden ticket. They’re smaller than traditional implants and can anchor securely in a jawbone with less density. They’re a one-piece post with a ball-shaped end that your crown attaches to. The implant is less than 3mm in diameter. Another benefit of mini implants is they take less time to heal because the surgical procedure is less invasive than a regular implant, and they can be used to support dentures and bridges.

Single Tooth Dental Implant

If you need just one tooth replaced, we can replace it with a single dental implant. Even if you’re missing one tooth in the back of your mouth, it’s still important to replace it. Without a tooth, your jawbone will start to recede. Your other teeth can also move without the pressure and structure of a complete set of teeth to keep them in place.

Patient Testimonials

Just 3 Steps To A Beautiful Smile

STEP 1
Schedule An Appointment

Schedule a consultation and exam with Dr. Chris Hill. During this appointment, you’ll discuss your smile wants and needs. Dr. Hill will examine your mouth and teeth to ensure dental implants are for you and go over the procedure, healing time, and benefits. Once you feel comfortable, we’ll schedule your procedure.

STEP 2
Relax During A Quick Procedure

Dental implant surgery is fairly quick—around 1 to 2 hours. You’ll be sedated, thoroughly numbed, and comfortable during the procedure. Be sure to have someone drive you to and from your appointment and take a day or two to rest after the procedure.

STEP 3
Enjoy Beautiful, Functional Teeth

The site of your implant surgery will take 3 to 6 months to heal. During that time, you’ll have a temporary crown that allows you to enjoy the benefits that dental implants offer. You’ll have a beautiful smile that feels and functions just like natural teeth. You’ll be able to eat all your favorite foods, speak clearly, and go about your day without the fear of slippage.
