The Steps of Our Implant Treatment
Step One: Meet with our Dentists
Your first treatment step is to meet with our team so we can learn about your concerns and smile goals! Having multiple missing teeth can cause significant embarrassment and even physical day-to-day discomfort. Our goal is to bring you out of this situation and into one where you feel attractive, confident, and healthy with a complete and functional smile. So this consultation and treatment planning phase is important to achieving these results. We’ll first take photos of your smile in our photo studio, so we can digitally design what it will look like after treatment is done. Then, we’ll take CBCT scans of your mouth, high-resolution 3D images that let us see the quality of your bone in detail. These scans help us plan your surgery and aid in the design of the custom surgical guide we’ll use. Next, we’ll schedule your implant surgery date.
Step Two: Have Your Implants Placed
Your day of surgery is first about making you feel comfortable and relaxed. We’ll assist you if necessary, with our sedation services, including nitrous oxide and oral sedation. Both these options will put you in a calm, drowsy state during your surgery. Dr. Leedy will extract any lingering unhealthy teeth, then using the surgical guide, place the dental implants in your jawbone. Our dentists use high-quality dental implants from long-standing manufacturers, including Nobel Biocare and Straumann®. These biocompatible implants have the durability to last for decades and the versatility to ensure the restoration we attach looks incredibly natural and attractive. Next, we’ll place bone grafts around the implant posts if needed and add plasma rich growth factors to aid in healing, before suturing your gum tissue back in place. If the dental implants have good primary stability in your bone, we’ll attach a temporary bridge that will provide function while your mouth heals.
Step Three: Get Your Final Dental Bridge
You will need to heal for a few months after surgery before receiving your final dental implant bridge. During this recovery phase, your jawbone and bone grafts are fusing around the dental implant post, a process known as osseointegration. This integration of bone and titanium is what creates a durable foundation for your new teeth. While you’re healing, Dr. Green will design your custom dental bridge to meet your smile goals and provide the greatest aesthetics and function. This bridge is made from a strong, durable material that we’ll color match to your existing teeth. Our goal is to have your dental implant bridge be indistinguishable from the rest of your smile! When your healing phase is complete, you’ll return to our office to have your temporary bridge removed and your final restoration attached. With proper care and maintenance, your new implant supported bridge will last for many years!
A Cost-Effective Investment
You can choose a conventional dental bridge or a partial denture to replace your multiple missing teeth. But neither of these options are true investments in your smile. Only dental implants have the potential to last for decades, all while providing amazing functional and health benefits for your smile. Our dental implant fees are all-inclusive, meaning any bone grafts, advanced healing, sedation, as well as the cost of the materials will be included in your dental implant cost. completing your preparatory procedures and surgery generally in a single appointment and restoring your dental implant bridge in-house, we have created a significantly streamlined process and competitive price for our treatment—without sacrificing the quality of the materials or procedures. We’ll help you afford this solution with our financing options, as well as maximizing your insurance benefits. You can get a new smile—one that can last for the rest of your life—with personalized dental implant treatment from our experienced team!
