A long-lasting choice, implant-supported dentistry brings you as close to growing new teeth as possible.
We first numb the site using a modern dental anesthetic. Then, the sterile implant piece is placed into an exact location, and a smooth cover, or healing cap, protects the implant during the healing period.
In some cases, a temporary or permanent crown is placed to protect the implant until it has fully fused with your bone. This period usually lasts three to six months as the bone grows around the implant.
Dr. Caldwell will help you decide what will work best during the initial healing period, ensuring you’re able to function while still protecting your implants.
A well-thought-out treatment plan that includes implants creates the opportunity for different restoration options.
After the healing period, crowns or bridges are custom-made and attached to your implants with small screws or dental cement.
In the end, you’ll be able to enjoy a fully functional and natural-looking smile for life!
Here are a few things to consider when you get dental implants.
Even with all the benefits, the cost of dental implants is an important consideration.
Compared to the replacement of other parts of the body, dental implant procedures represent a small fraction of those costs. Most patients carry on with normal activities right away and usually enjoy a lifetime of normal chewing, bite stability, and appearance.
We know the cost of dental implants is an integral part of creating a complete plan that works for you. This is why Dr. Caldwell customizes your treatment plan after carefully evaluating your current oral conditions, needs, goals, and budget.
One thing is certain: You’ll get the highest value possible in modern implant dentistry. That means years of natural function and a smile you are proud to show. We look forward to discussing how we can partner together for the best solution for you!
