A dental implant is a titanium or cosmetic, all-white zirconia implant that is placed in the jaw to replace a lost tooth root. Due to the biocompatible nature of titanium and zirconia, the jaw bone fuses to the implant, creating an incredibly strong foundation for a lifelike artificial tooth.
Dental implants replace a missing tooth, helping patients eat most foods and smile with confidence. Implants don't effect surrounding teeth and there is never a risk of implants slipping out of place. A dental implant can become a durable, long-lasting part of your smile that also stops bone loss.
If you are a candidate for dental implants, Dr. Jason Collier can carefully plan your surgery procedure, determining the proper position of the post. He will then perform the surgical placement of the implant during a simple, in-office procedure using advanced sedation techniques for your comfort.
To ensure that you remain comfortable and relaxed during the dental implant placement procedure, our dentists are certified to provide IV and oral conscious sedation dentistry. You can remain conscious during your procedure, but be in a state of relaxation in which you will not be able to feel pain.
For qualified patients who want a restored smile without the wait, we offer same visit teeth. An immediate function dental implant with same visit teeth can eliminate the healing and implant integration period required before replacement teeth can be attached to traditional implants.
Made from biocompatible ceramic, zirconia dental implants provide the same benefits as traditional titanium posts, while promoting osseointegration and bone growth. They also offer aesthetic benefits. Dr. Collier can help you determine if these implants are the best option for restoring your smile.
Dental implant cost varies on a case-by-case basis and is affected by a number of factors, including the number of implants you receive, and any preparatory procedures you need to undergo. Our team can discuss financing options to make treatment affordable, so you can achieve the smile you deserve.
Using the All-on-4® technique, Dr. Collier can secure a full-arch, implant-supported denture using only four dental implants. This treatment makes the most of current bone mass and can help patients who have suffered bone loss receive implants without the need for preparatory procedures.
