Restore Your Healthy Smile

At Pomerado Family Dental, we offer state-of-the-art solutions for your dental needs to help you restore a complete, healthy, and beautiful smile.

Today, dental implants represent the most advanced system for the replacement of missing teeth. While conventional fixed bridges and dentures remain effective and satisfying ways to replace missing teeth, dental implants come the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of a natural smile.

Boost Confidence with Dental Implants

With dental implants, you can once again enjoy all your favorite foods and speak and smile with renewed confidence and ease.

Because implants behave in much the same way as the roots of natural teeth, they provide unrivaled stability for the placement of a broad range of dental prostheses, including crowns and bridges up to a complete set of teeth.

Dental Implant Procedure Process 

The process of dental implants is a comprehensive and precise procedure that involves several stages.

Oral Examination

At Pomerado Family Dental, we begin by conducting a thorough examination and assessment of your oral health and bone structure.

We use 3D CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) to aid in precise implant planning and evaluation of dental infections. By going through this extra step, we can see high-resolution, three-dimensional images of your mouth, and bone density which allow us to make better decisions for your oral health. Another incredible benefits is minimizing patient’s exposure to radiation by about 98%.

For patients with insufficient bone volume in the jaw, bone grafting may be recommended before implant placement. The bone grafting procedure involves adding bone material to the targeted area, promoting bone growth, and creating a solid foundation for the implants.

Implant Placement

Once the bone graft has integrated and healed, the next step is the implant placement. Our skilled dentists carefully position the titanium posts into the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots. Over a few months, the implants naturally fuse with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration.

People heal and progress at different rates, so the exact amount of time will vary a bit person to person within that 3 – 5 month time frame.

Custom-made Dental Attachments

After the healing period, the final phase involves attaching custom-made dental crowns, bridges, or dentures to the implants, restoring your smile to its full function, beauty, and confidence.

Throughout the entire process, our compassionate team ensures your comfort and satisfaction, providing personalized care tailored to your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

Dental implants behave in much the same way as the roots of natural teeth and are designed to support both individual dental crowns and bridges to rebuild a complete smile. Just how aesthetically pleasing and naturally beautiful your dental implant restorations look depends in large part on the artistry and skill of the professionals providing your care.

At the office of Pomerado Family Dental, you can feel confident sharing your new smile with the world. Every implant restoration that we fabricate is made from the most cosmetically pleasing, safe, and durable dental materials. Not only will your new teeth blend seamlessly with your smile, but the size, shape, and color will be selected for optimal facial aesthetics and harmony.

While rebuilding a complete smile with dental implants is a worthwhile investment, our office is sensitive to the costs involved in dental care. We customize care and will discuss all treatment options that address your oral healthcare needs, cosmetic goals, and budget. Our office is dedicated to making care more accessible and will help patients navigate their dental insurance coverage and optimize their benefits. We can also discuss payment plans as well as financing treatment to make things easier for you. Feel free to contact our team with all your questions regarding methods of payment and financing options.
In addition to representing the most advanced solution for the replacement of missing teeth, dental implants are also the most versatile. While an individual implant supports a crown to replace a single tooth, additional implants can also be placed to replace multiple teeth. Even if you’re missing all your upper or lower teeth, it can be used to reestablish a complete and beautiful smile.

Dental implants are small, biocompatible surgical posts that behave in much the same way as the roots of natural teeth. Once placed and integrated with the surrounding bone, dental implants provide unparalleled support for single crowns, bridges, and dentures. As the most advanced method for the replacement of missing teeth, they offer satisfying, long-lasting, and functional solutions for rebuilding a complete smile.

Whether you’re missing one tooth, multiple ones, or missing all your teeth, you can rebuild a complete and beautiful smile with implants! According to statistics, roughly 3 million people have already received dental implants, with that number increasing at a staggering rate of 500,000 per year! The soaring popularity of dental implants is attributed, in large part, to the numerous benefits they offer as compared with other methods of care.

While conventional fixed bridges and dentures provide effective and satisfying solutions for the replacement of missing teeth, dental implants offer several advantages over traditional methods of care:

  • Dental implants come the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of natural teeth.
  • With precise placement, good oral hygiene, and routine care, implants can last for many
  • Implants provide continued stimulation to the underlying bone to prevent the bone loss
    that occurs when teeth are missing while preserving natural facial contours.
  • Since implants behave like natural teeth, there is no chance that they will slip or dislodge
    like removable dentures when speaking or eating.
  • With dental implants, it is possible to speak with ease as well as eat and taste all types of
    food with virtually no restrictions.
  • Dental implants do not decay and will not develop cavities.
  • Unlike a fixed bridge, implants do not require any
    preparation or crowning of teeth adjacent to the edentulous area.

If you are wondering if you’re a candidate for dental implants, it’s easy enough to find out. At the office of Pomerado Family Dental, we’re not only happy to take a look at your smile, but we’ll also answer all your questions and explain your best options in care. As the most versatile solution for reestablishing a complete smile, dental implants offer a wide range of applications and can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all of the upper and lower teeth.

Rest assured that your care is in skilled and capable hands. You can count on our office for the best solutions for your smile. We treat every smile as unique and develop personalized treatment plans based upon your medical and dental histories, as well as your current oral health, cosmetic expectations of care, lifestyle, and budget.

It’s essential to plan and meticulously execute every step in care, from initial treatment planning and the precise placement of dental implants all the way to the design, fabrication, and insertion of the final crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Surgery to place the dental implant is typically considered a minor surgical procedure and performed on an outpatient basis. However, the exact extent of the procedure depends upon the type and number of dental implants and whether or not any additional procedures are required to prepare the supporting bone.

As your trusted partner in care, you can count on our office to keep you well informed every step of the way. Patient care and comfort are our top priorities. We do everything we can to put you at ease and make every visit to our office both comfortable and stress-free. Prior to your dental implant procedure, we’ll discuss your dental anesthesia, options in dental sedation, and provide detailed pre-op and post-op care instructions.

Once your dental implant is placed, it can take a few months for it to fully integrate with the surrounding bone. While in some cases, a same-day temporary crown or bridge can be placed to provide an immediate and cosmetically pleasing look, permanent prostheses are typically placed when healing and osseointegration (fusion) with the surrounding bone are completed.

According to clinical studies, dental implants have a demonstrated long-term success rate of well over 95%.

However, the long-term stability and success of a dental implant depend upon the presence of sufficient bone at the time of placement. In cases of periodontal disease or following the extraction of a tooth, bone volume is often lost. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for placement of dental implants without some type of bone grafting.

Today, we have the ability to grow bone where needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, but it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and esthetic appearance.

Even if you’ve lost a back tooth that no one sees, it’s essential to replace it. Missing teeth do more than cause embarrassing gaps in your smile. In addition to affecting your ability to chew and speak, missing teeth can also cause gradual changes to the alignment of your remaining teeth. These changes not only affect your bite, but they have the potential to create more unsightly and unhealthy gaps in your smile. Furthermore, without the support of a complete set of teeth, facial contours can begin to sag, creating a more haggard look over time.

Dental implants can help people who wear full dentures in multiple ways. For one thing, they offer an alternative to full dentures. Because strategically placed implants can support a full arch dental bridge, you can enjoy the benefits of a fixed, non-removable, stable, and natural-looking solution for your smile.

Another way dental implants can benefit someone who wears full dentures, is by providing the denture with added stability and retention. Specialized teeth implants offer an attachment point for a full denture so that you no longer need denture adhesives to prevent uncomfortable and embarrassing slippage.

Just like a new hip or new knee, teeth implants are fabricated from the highest quality of medical-grade biocompatible materials. While most dental implants are made of titanium, some are fabricated from zirconia. Both titanium and zirconia are biocompatible materials, which integrate well with the hard and soft tissues in the jaw.

Taking care of your dental implants requires the same diligence it takes to care for a natural smile. An effective oral hygiene regimen that includes brushing twice a day and flossing combined with healthy oral habits, good nutrition, and routine dental care are the best steps you can take to maintain your new smile. Although implants do not get cavities, it’s essential to keep in mind that you can still develop periodontal problems, compromising the success and longevity of your dental implants.

As your trusted partner in care, we remain dedicated to your ongoing oral health. We’ll provide you with ample instruction in the best methods for taking care of your oral health and new smile.

Dental implants enjoy the highest success rate of any implanted medical prosthesis. However, their longevity depends on a number of factors. Enjoying the benefits of dental implants in the long term relies upon skilled placement, adequate bone volume at the time of placement, and the level of ongoing oral care. With proper care, well-planned and well-placed dental implants will serve you well for many years to come.
As skilled and experienced providers of care, our office values patient input, and a member of our team is always on hand to address all your questions and concerns. We firmly believe that achieving the best treatment outcomes depends upon successful partnerships in care. We strive to provide the best solutions for your smile while making treatment more comfortable, accessible, and affordable.
