Dental Implants by Glance Dental

Dental Implants are the closest possible option for actual tooth replacement. With proper care, maintenance, and regular checkup visits with your dentist, they are designed to last for life. Dental implants can be used to permanently replace one, several, or all teeth in the upper and lower jaw. Many people with implants can’t even tell the difference between their natural teeth and their implants, and neither can their friends and family!

Once placed in the jawbone, dental implants act as artificial tooth roots to provide a stable base for single-tooth crowns, larger bridges, or dentures. Glance Dental is proud to offer dental implants as a treatment option for our patients.

Implants in three easy steps:

Step 1: Implant Placement

The dentist places the implant surgically in the upper or lower jaw. A "healing cap" is placed over it to protect it. Sometimes, bone grafting may be required either before or during implant placement.

Step 2: Healing & Osseointegration

Implants are so strong because the bone in the jaw actually grows around the implant, anchoring it into place and accepting it as a part of the bone. This is called osseointegration and is a critical step in the implant process.

Step 3: Tooth Replacement

The dentist will have a custom crown, bridge or denture made to fit your mouth and implants.

Advantages of Implants

Our dental team will examine your mouth to ensure you are a good candidate for a dental implant. The dentist will be checking the overall health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. The exam also includes X-rays and 3D imaging that will provide our team with a complete view of your teeth above and below the gums, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bone density. Learn more about the technology used at your consultation.

Each patient is unique and requires a unique solution. After a thorough oral examination, our dental team will discuss your tooth replacement options and provide a treatment recommendation. At this time, we'll review the various steps involved in the recommended treatment and answer your questions and concerns.

After determining the best treatment option, our team will be able to provide you with pricing for the recommended procedure. We can also answer any pricing-related questions you may have, including what your insurance will and will not cover, as well as your financing options. At Glance dental, we do offer customized financial options to fit your budget.
