Dental Implants

Implants are easily completed in 3 phases. During your first phase, the implant will be placed. The titanium rod takes the place of the root in your other teeth.

During the second phase of implant dentistry, bone begins to grow around the implant, stabilizing it. In Phase 2, instead of attaching a permanent crown, we will attach a temporary restoration to allow you time to heal, typically around 2-3 months. In Phase 3, after healing, we will make a custom permanent crown to attach to the implant.

Traditional and Mini Implants

Traditional dental implants are much thicker than mini dental implants. The posts are implanted into the jawbone, and usually require a few months for healing.

Mini dental implants are a good option for patients who want a less invasive procedure. These narrower dental implants are right for some patients who are unable to have regular teeth implants due to insufficient jaw bone density. Dr. Moore will be happy to help you find out which type of implants are right for you.

My pleasant experience at Create-a-Smile has made it so I don’t fear the dentist. Dr. Moore is very informative and congenial when it comes to the explanation of my visit.

At Create a Smile, we will help you complete the implant dentistry process with long-lasting and lifelike restorations. Some of your options include crowns, bridges, and dentures.

We provide both fixed and removable denture implants. Fixed denture implants tend to feel more natural and better restore chewing efficiency. However, removable denture implants require fewer dental implants and are a more conservative procedure that creates a stable new smile.
