Affordable Dental Implants for Everyone
"For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
Dental Abutment Placement
Once your dental implant bonds with your jawbone, a small connector – called an abutment – is placed on the dental implant just above the gumline. In some cases, the abutment can be placed at the same time as the dental implant.
Custom-Design And Attachment Of New Teeth
After your gums heal, your Dental Implant Expert will make impressions of your mouth and remaining teeth to custom-make your artificial teeth. These teeth – which can be an individual crown, implant-supported bridge or dental implant dentures containing multiple replacement teeth – will be attached to the abutment. Although they don’t decay, your new teeth and gums will need the same routine care, checkups and cleanings as your natural teeth.
Periodic Check Ups
Depending on the number and type of dental implants and replacement teeth you receive, the entire process can take two to nine months. After your dental implant placement is finished, you’ll visit your Dental Implant Dentist periodically for follow-up checkups, just as you do your regular dentist.

"A sanctuary of clinical excellence"
Dental implant placement usually involves the following steps:
Initial Consultation And Imaging
Your Dental Implant Expert will thoroughly examine your mouth, review your health history, take any necessary X-rays or CBCT 3D images, discuss the various dental implant solutions tailored to your needs and desires, and then develop a treatment plan that best fits your health goals and affordability.
Dental Implant Placement
Your Dental Implant Expert will place the dental implant in your jawbone where your tooth or teeth are missing. Although each patient’s experience is unique, most people find they experience less pain and discomfort than they expect, and typically return to work the next day. Local anesthesia or IV sedation can be used to keep you comfortable, depending upon the scope and complexity of the procedure. Post-implant placement discomfort is minimal and very tolerable, may include swelling, bruising, minor bleeding, but most patients usually manage any discomfort with over-the-counter medications and a medicated rinse.
Osseointegration (Bone Anchorage)
As you heal, your dental implant and jawbone will anchor and bond together in a process called osseointegration (os-e-o-in-tuh-GRAY-shun), forming a strong, long-lasting foundation for your replacement teeth. During this healing process, which can take as little as two months, you go on with your normal life. You will be on a soft food diet for the first few days to make sure your dental implants heal properly. In some cases, your Dental Implant Expert may also be able to place temporary teeth during this period.
