Are you tired of dealing with dentures sliding around in your mouth? Or maybe you want to install a dental bridge, but don’t have any good candidates left as anchor teeth? Fear not! Our Shawnee dental implants are built to stand the test of time and provide your mouth with the structure and support it needs for everyday life. A long-lasting choice, implant-supported dentistry brings you as close to growing new teeth as possible. Expertly placed in the same bone that once supported teeth, you’ll enjoy the strength and function of a natural tooth. Modern porcelains produce a result so life-like, you may forget they aren’t your natural teeth. Dentures can also be attached to implants when more than one missing tooth needs to be replaced. The stability and sense of confidence you develop with implants will leave you smiling.
Dr. Israelsen and Dr. Wandro use the latest technology to collect all the data necessary to help plan your restorative case. Digital x-rays, 3D mapping, models, and photographs prove valuable. Dr. Israelsen and Dr. Wandro use highly regarded specialists to bring all components of your case together. But at all times, they serve as the quarterbacks of the entire plan.
Many patients find the procedure of implant placement easier than they anticipated. Various types of sedation may fit your comfort level best, so feel free to discuss them with Dr. Israelsen and Dr. Wandro. Modern dental anesthetic numbs the site, and experienced hands carefully place the implant. A tiny guide hole provides a path for threading a small implant cylinder into place. The sterile piece is inserted into an exact location, and a smooth cover, or healing cap, protects the implant during the healing period.
In some cases, a temporary or permanent crown may be inserted at the time of surgery. Cases involving multiple implants often proceed the same way so that you can smile confidently immediately.
Implants can’t withstand normal bite forces until the bone has integrated fully into the implant body. Dr. Israelsen and Dr. Wandro will help you decide what will work best during the initial healing period, ensuring you’re able to function while protecting your implants. This period usually lasts 3-6 months as the bone grows around the implant. Most patients experience minimal discomfort after placement, especially compared to an extraction.
A carefully developed treatment plan which includes an implant placement, sets a solid foundation for an array of restorative options. After the healing period, crowns or bridges will be custom-made and attached to the implants with small screws or dental cement. The customization of your case from initial planning to final placement that makes all the difference. This allows a full range of services to be considered, from the replacement of one tooth to restoration of the entire mouth. Regardless of your situation, there’s a solution for you.
Even with all the benefits, the cost of dental implant procedures is an important consideration. When your case brings together the latest imaging, advanced training, and unique material technologies, this service offers one of the best values in modern health care. Compared to the replacement of other hard structures and joints of the body, most dental implant procedures can be done at a small fraction of those costs. Most patients carry on with normal activities right away and usually enjoy a lifetime of normal chewing, bite stability, and appearance. We know the cost of dental implants is an important part of creating a complete plan that works for you.
The cost of dental implant services involves several critical factors unique to each patient. A fee quoted without careful evaluation and treatment planning may not only be incomplete but doesn’t consider what’s best for your mouth as an individual. Dr. Israelsen and Dr. Wandro customize your treatment plan after they evaluate your current oral conditions, needs, wants, and budget.
