Do you have difficulty chewing or feelings of self-consciousness about your appearance because you are missing some or all of your teeth? If so, dental implants may be the ideal solution for you. With dental implants, you can have a full, permanent set of teeth that look and function as though they are your own natural teeth. At the Southern Dental Implant Center, serving the Memphis area, we offer dental implants and immediate function dental implants (Same Day Teeth™) to patients throughout Tennessee. Implants can give you back a full set of strong, healthy teeth and make you feel good about smiling again.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw bone, where it replaces the missing natural tooth root. Due to the biocompatible nature of titanium, the jaw bone fuses to the implant, allowing it to serve as a strong foundation for a natural-looking artificial tooth. The final result is a remarkably strong, stable tooth that looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
Dental implants offer our patients a stable, aesthetically pleasing way to replace for a missing tooth, restoring the ability to eat most foods and to smile with confidence. Implants don't affect surrounding teeth like traditional bridges do, and unlike removable dentures, there is never a risk of implants slipping out of place. Once treatment is complete, dental implants remain a durable part of your smile. They also stop the deterioration of bone that occurs where a tooth is missing and help to preserve the bone mass around the implant site.
Patients from throughout the Memphis area visit the Southern Dental Implant Center for dental implants due to their reputation as an experienced implant clinic. Dr. Jason Collier will begin by determining whether you are a good candidate for implants. In general, you must have a sufficient amount of healthy bone in your jaw to support the implant post. If you don't have enough bone, a grafting procedure may be performed to ensure that the implant will have a strong foundation. If you are a suitable candidate for dental implants, Dr. Collier will plan your implant surgery procedure by determining the proper position of the post. He will then perform the surgical placement of the implant during a simple, in-office procedure.
In most cases, there will be a four-to-six-month healing period after the implant has been placed before the artificial tooth can be attached to the post. However, in some cases, our doctor can provide patients with Same Day Teeth™, also known as immediate dental implants.
To ensure that you remain comfortable, relaxed, and free from pain during the dental implant placement procedure, our dentists are certified to provide IV and oral conscious sedation dentistry. You will remain conscious during your procedure, but be in a state of relaxation in which you will not be able to feel pain. Our team will carefully monitor you throughout the procedure to ensure your comfort and safety. Afterwards, you will remember little to nothing of your implant procedure. If you would like to learn more about sedation dentistry at our practice serving Memphis for the placement of your dental implants, contact the Southern Dental Implant Center today.
For patients who want a restored smile without the waiting time required for traditional dental implants, we are pleased to offer Same Day Teeth™. Also known as immediate function dental implants, Same Day Teeth™ eliminate the four-to-six month healing and implant integration period required before replacement teeth can be attached to traditional implants. Patients can have their dental implant posts placed and leave our office with stable, natural-looking teeth on that same day! Please note that immediate function dental implants are not the best choice for all patients. To find out whether you are a good candidate for Same Day Teeth™ or traditional dental implants, schedule a consultation at our practice serving all of Tennessee.
