Implant Dentistry

 

Implant dentistry has the best long-term success of tooth replacement available today.  When considering implant dentistry to replace a missing tooth or several teeth you need a dentist experienced in treatment planning, coordination of surgical implant placement with a specialist and competence in managing the restoration process.

 

The implant restoration process is always part of a comprehensive treatment plan that is very patient specific and varies from person to person, but in general the process is:  Surgical placement of the dental  implant into the jawbone by an oral surgeon or periodontist followed by 4-6 months of healing.  Impressions begin  the restoration  process of the implant with the crown of the tooth or attachments to retain a denture; the restoration process generally takes 4-6 weeks.

 

Success rates of dental implants vary but are greatly influenced by the the skill and experience of the surgeon and the restoring dentist.  Dental implants have success rates of nearly 98% in healthy non-smoking adults with healthy gums and enough bone. With proper surgical placement, restoration design and home care implants can last a lifetime.

Drs. Richard and Jennifer Vermillion have working relationships with regional specialists placing implants and both doctors have the high level of competence in the treatment planning necessary for the success of your treatment.  The doctors have the education, training and clinical experience needed for predictable implant restoration.

 

Our office works with the highest quality dental laboratories that keep up with the ever advancing technology and computer aided design and fabrication methods happening in the implant dentistry field today.

 If you are thinking about dental implants for yourself or a family member give our office a call to discuss your treatment with Drs. Richard or Jennifer Vermillion.
