Get a deceptively natural smile from a dentist who has been placing dental implants for over 30 years…
Implant Dentistry is a perfect blend of art, science, and surgery that provides a challenging reward of my skills and abilities, yet a pleasure to provide for many patients.” -Ted Reese, DDS, MAGD
Why Get Dental Implants?
Implants not only replace missing teeth, but they:
…replace the comfort that was once lost from chewing with previously secure teeth
…offer security and confidence to speak and chew in social settings
…when placed, positioned, and restored by a trained and experienced clinician can restore the natural smile once thought to be lost.
Dental implants are used as:
…a replacement ‘root’ for a missing single tooth.
…a series of anchors to secure a fixed bridge, or segment of teeth without the need for unsightly and bothersome metal ‘clasps’.
…a means to hold a loose and uncomfortable denture in place
…a means to replace a removable denture with an entire arch of teeth that don’t come out!
…the means to remove the acrylic that covers the roof of the mouth in a conventional upper denture.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants allow the replacement of a single tooth or multiple teeth without relying on any adjacent teeth for strength or support. Implants are generally considered the first alternative to bridges, partials, or dentures. Of the many benefits dental implants afford, the ability to replace teeth without affecting or altering the adjacent teeth is the most obvious benefit.
Dr. Reese uses dental implant “posts” that are made of the same biocompatible metal (Titanium) that hip and knee implants are fabricated. This new post and crown can be used for replacement of a single missing tooth, or multiple implants may be placed to avoid a removable partial or full denture.
What Are My Dental Implant Options?
- Same day removal of nonrestorable teeth, with surgical placement of the implant and ‘temporization’ of an acrylic tooth to eliminate gaps in your smile.
- Same day mini implant placement and denture retention to secure your existing dentures.
- In-office, intravenous (IV) sedation in our own surgery suites to avoid hospital costs, yet allow you to safely sleep through the surgical procedures.
- Bone grafting to replace the missing jaw bone required for implant placement after years of tooth loss.
- Gum grafting to replace the shrunken gum tissue negatively affecting smile results in front tooth replacement.
- Sinus bone grafting to provide the required jaw bone for implant placement in the upper jaw.
- Some implants can be placed without the need for incisions or sutures, which reduces any post surgical swelling or tenderness!
Dr. Reese and his caring team will be happy to discuss your dental implant treatment options.
Want a second opinion? If you’ve been told you’re not a candidate for dental implants or had an opinion or recommendation that was too expensive or too involved for your comfort, we may be able to offer some alternatives that less experienced or less trained practitioners can offer. We’ve been able to help many patients, that were previously told they couldn’t be helped. We are happy to offer you a second opinion and treatment plan to assist you in your decision making.
