Dental implants are the best way to restore missing teeth. These artificial tooth roots can be brushed and flossed just like a regular tooth. The success rate is nearly 98%, making them an excellent conservative approach to replace teeth that have been extracted.

Quality Implant Therapy in a Family Practice Setting

Dr. Clark has taken extensive training on dental implants, bone grafting and soft tissue management for difficult cases. The Straumann implants that we use are the best in the industry. As such, our patients can receive their entire treatment in our practice, without the added price tag of going to an outside clinic.

Treatment Timelines: What to Expect

From start to finish, a typical implant can take anywhere from 12 weeks to 5 months depending on your specific oral requirements. Installing the implant itself is a quick, quiet procedure. It’s typically far easier than most people envision.

After the surgical placement, the implant site requires about 8 weeks to heal. Then, impressions are made for the final prosthesis (such as a crown, bridge or denture). About a month after, the permanent restoration is delivered. Both simple as well as complex bone grafting techniques may be performed based on individual needs. If bone grafting is needed due to structural loss, the healing process can take a few more months.

Who is the ideal implant patient?

If you have a broken tooth that can’t be restored or a tooth that has recently been extracted, an implant is usually the best way to restore the aesthetics and your bite. Additionally, some people who have had teeth missing for several years can also benefit from a dental implant.
These stand-alone prosthetics function as roots to support a fixed restoration, such as● Single-tooth crowns● Multiple-tooth dental bridges● Overdentures that clip into place
Not everyone is a good candidate for an implant. Ask for a consultation so we can explore your options with you before you commit to any treatment.
