Dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

Your Evaluation for Dental Implants
If you determine implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During your consultation, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Dr. Haidari or by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us, and our team will work with you very closely to help make your dental implant placement procedure a success.
How Does the Dental Implant Procedure Work?
Dental implants are metal anchors, which act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jaw bone. Small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrudes through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.
For most patients at Clayton Dental Group, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums, gradually bonding with the jaw bone. You should be able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet during this time. At the same time, your restorative dentist will design your final bridgework or denture to ultimately improve both function and aesthetics.
After the implant has bonded to the jaw bone, the second phase begins. Your surgeon will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. Dr. Haidari can then start crafting your new teeth. An impression must be taken, ten posts or attachments can be connected to your new implants. The replacement teeth are then made over the posts or attachments. Throughout the duration of the implant process, most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life!
Teeth-In-An-Hour™ is a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a single procedure that takes only about an hour. This technology utilizes collaboration between both your restorative doctor and the implant surgeon. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves not only increased safety, but also a more precise implant placement. In addition, the fabrication of a final prosthesis is completed prior to the surgery. The computer-guided implant surgery is done in an arthroscopic fashion without requiring any flap reflection. This benefits the patient in several ways, including less postoperative discomfort, less swelling, and less bruising. Patients can often resume their normal activities the next day!
The process begins when a CAT scan is taken of the patient’s jaw bone. This CAT scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jaw bone that can then be used with virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are a more accurate implant placement and less time spent in the dentist's chair.
Why Choose Dental Implants Over More Traditional Dental Restorations?
There are several reasons to choose dental implants over other types of tooth replacement options. A dental bridge can sacrifice the structure of surrounding good teeth to bridge the space of the missing teeth. In addition, patients often find the dietary restrictions, slippage and nighttime removal associated with dentures to be inconvenient and uncomfortable.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
To determine your out-of-pocket dental implant costs, check with your dental insurance carrier to see what portion, if any, of dental implants they cover.
There are healthcare credit companies that offer no-interest and low-interest loans for medical procedures including dental implants. At Clayton Dental Group, we work with CareCredit to allow payment plans for our patients.
Dental Implants are an investment in your health as well as your appearance. A full set of teeth makes eating a pleasure again, making it easier to eat a balanced, healthy diet. A full set of teeth also preserves the contours of the face, helping you maintain a youthful appearance.
