Restoring Your Smile

Parting with a tooth can affect your oral health and affect how you feel and look. At The Ivory, we want to help you show off your best smile. Over time, a missing tooth can affect how you talk, chew, and look. 

Replacing your missing tooth with an implant can do wonders for your oral and overall health. Our team will take the time to walk you through the entire process and explore your options. 

A dental implant can be a big decision, and we want to help make sure you know what to expect. Contact us to schedule your appointment today and explore if a dental implant is right for you.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small, metal posts that are surgically placed into your gums and jaw and can support a wide variety of replacement teeth. We offer both single-tooth implants, which use a dental crown, and full-arch implants, which replace all of your teeth with a new set. 

We also handle the dental implant process in-house, including placements, restorations, and maintenance.

Our Office Atmosphere

With a surgical procedure like dental implants, we know that some patients can be nervous about what to expect. That’s why we’ve prioritized an office atmosphere designed to put our patients at ease. From the greenery all around the office to the cozy amenities we offer, your comfort is key.

So, while you’re waiting for your appointment, kick back and enjoy a beverage. You can set your mind at ease when you’re at The Ivory.

The Difference Dental Implants Make

Dental implants look and feel natural. They can last longer than other types of replacement teeth and help support the strength of your jawbone. Dental implants also will never move or shift, unlike dentures.

Some benefits of dental implants include:

  • Helping to prevent bone loss
  • Providing a natural look and feel
  • Keeping adjacent teeth stable
  • Restoring bite force

The Implant Process

Our dental implant process is comprehensive. During your initial consultation, Dr. Sweeney will perform an oral exam to confirm that you’re a good candidate for treatment. We use CBCT (cone-beam computed tomography) technology to take a 3D image of your jaw during the planning stage. 

If you’re a candidate for implant surgery, Dr. Sweeney will make a custom surgical guide and schedule your surgical appointment.

Dr. Sweeney will place your implant and a temporary crown using the custom surgical guide to allow for precise placement and the best result based on your treatment plan.

Initial healing takes only 1–2 weeks. However, it will take up to 3–6 months for the implant to permanently attach to your jawbone. You will come back for multiple follow-ups during this time so that Dr. Sweeney can check on your healing progress and begin designing your replacement teeth.

Once your mouth has fully healed, your restoration, such as a dental crown, will be attached to your dental implant at your final appointment. You’ll be able to go home with a beautiful, brand-new tooth that can last and look great for decades to come.

Healing & Maintenance

Dr. Sweeney will provide specific steps to care for your implant, depending on the type of implant you receive. After your implants heal fully, you’ll be able to treat them just like a natural tooth, which means continuing to brush and floss as normal.

With proper care, your dental implants should last for years to come.
