Implants (Surgical)

Many patients find the procedure of implant placement easier than they anticipated. Advances in our modern day anesthesia techniques ensure our patients have an extremely comfortable and pleasant implant experience. Your team will pamper you through the entire process. A small implant is precisely put into place. The sterile piece is inserted 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 may be inserted at the time of surgery. This is called Teeth-In-A-Day.

Implants can't withstand normal bite forces until the bone has fully attached or bonded onto the Titanium surface of the implant. Dr. Scott Clayhold will help you decide what will work best during the initial healing period, ensuring you’re able to function while still protecting your implants. This period usually lasts 3 to 6 months as the bone grows into the implant. Most patients experience minimal discomfort after placement, especially compared to an extraction.

Implants (Restorative)

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 the implants with small screws or dental cement.
