Eat Comfortably & Smile Confidently With Teeth Implants

The idea of implants has been around for thousands of years in one form or another, but it wasn’t until 1965 that the first true implant was placed in a person’s jaw. Today’s dental implants are usually made from titanium. This metal chemically fuses with bone and becomes one with it. This process, called osseointegration, creates an extremely sturdy base for your replacement teeth.

Depending on your needs, we may use one or more of the following implant configurations. Unlike some dentists, we both place and restore implants. This means you won’t have to go anywhere else for any part of your treatment.

  • Single Implant-Crown Combination – We’ll place a single implant, then cap it with a crown to replace a missing tooth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – Your bridge will be anchored using two or more implants rather than your natural teeth.
  • Implant-Secured Dentures – You’ll never worry about your dentures slipping or popping out when they’re secured by implants. Even better, you’ll never need adhesive again.
  • Fixed Hybrid Implants – Using a minimal number of implants, we can anchor a complete arch of replacement teeth. Your teeth stay in place, so you care for them just like natural teeth.
  • Full-Mouth Reconstruction – Dr. Mullins will develop a unique treatment plan to give you back all your teeth.

If you are nervous about your implant procedure, you can receive sedation if needed. You can choose laughing gas or oral sedation. It will allow you to relax and get your new implants stress-free.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small posts made from titanium that your dentist inserts into your jawbone to serve as replacement teeth roots. If you are missing one or more teeth, implants function as a base for several types of new replacement teeth, including crowns, bridges, dentures, and full arches of fixed teeth.

Are dental implants painful?

You should not feel any pain at all when getting your new implants and only mild discomfort after your procedure. Your mouth will be numb during your implant placement to prevent pain, and anchoring your new teeth should be comfortable. If you’re nervous about your procedure here, we also offer dental sedation to help you relax.

Can dental implants be removed?

Dental implants could be removed, although it is not likely you would need to have them removed. Once your implants are placed in your jawbone, they will fuse with the bone and last for decades, if not a lifetime. Your replacement teeth attached to the implants will last five to 10 years on average.
