Dental Implants Can Make Your Smile Great Again
Dental Implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. These allow your Dentist to avoid having to replace any removable dentures. They are not a transplant. Implants are an artificial replacement for your own teeth.
Types of Dental Implants
There are several categories of dental implants. Each implant serves its’ own special scenario. Using X-rays of your mouth, we can determine what kind of implant will best suit your needs. With these X-rays, we can determine the amount of bone remaining and the space available for implants. After the examination, we can suggest the right type of implants for your mouth.
Dental implants are becoming more and more widely used by dentists worldwide. Success rates have skyrocketed in the past few years, and people are finding new comfort and confidence in replacing their missing teeth with implants.
Our Cone Beam CT scan machine allows us to evaluate the site of implant placement for adequate bone volume, quality, and density; avoiding nerves and any other intricate anatomy of the jaw bone; even picking the exact angle, width, and length of the implant that would be best for your specific case.

Case Study: Brian D.
One of Brian’s lower right molars had been missing for several years. The other lower right molar was broken and non-restorable. After a thorough examination, we decided that dental implants would be the best solution. 3-D planning imagery from our Cone Beam CT scan machine in the office allowed us to determine the best position for the dental implants. We also created a surgical guide for implant placement using this scan.
Case Study: Reggie R.
When Reggie first came to our office, he had two badly infected upper front teeth. Through a process involving extractions, bone grafting, and braces, we were able to get Reggie to a point that dental implants were a great option to replace his missing front teeth. This case was also performed using a surgical guide generated from our 3D cone beam CT and digital planning capabilities.
