Our Dental Implant Services

We welcome patients to visit our implant dentist to get their treatment plan started, beginning with an evaluation and discussion of options. This planning process ensures that all parts of your procedure are successful and provide you with a stable and long-lasting replacement for missing teeth.

Dr. Marie works with your dental specialist to coordinate the surgical placement of your dental implants. Both doctors review your plan for care to determine if any pre-treatments, such as bone grafts, are necessary and how to provide the best results. With successful treatment, dental implants can provide:

  • Replacements for all parts of lost teeth
  • Stimulation for better bone health
  • Improved dental function
  • Better aesthetics than full and partial dentures

After your implant procedure is complete and the implants have successfully integrated into your bone, Dr. Marie welcomes you back to her office to complete your smile. She will place your implant crown, implant-supported bridge, or a fixed implant denture based on the option that meets your needs for teeth replacement. Your prosthetic is designed by us and created by a trusted local dental lab to match the size, shape, and color of the surrounding teeth for a final result that looks and feels natural.

Full Mouth Reconstruction with Dental Implants

While implants prove effective for many patients, perhaps the most life-changing results are provided for those who are missing all of their natural teeth and have been struggling with removable dentures. Dentures are economical and popular, but they are held in place with temporary adhesive and may cause issues such as slipping out of place, irritating soft tissue, or causing such an inconvenience that patients fail to wear them.

With just a few dental implants, we can stabilize your denture to be significantly stronger and more comfortable, allowing you to eat your favorite foods and feel confident about your smile. Our Auburn full mouth reconstruction services include a variety of implant-supported devices, including completely screw-retained and non-removable dentures.

Dental Implants FAQs

We believe that dental care should include quality services and open dialogue. That is why we encourage our patients to share their questions and concerns. Our friendly team is happy to provide the answers and information our patients need to feel confident in their custom treatment plans. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental implants.

Do dental implants hurt?

No. Implant-supported restorations are personalized to fit your dental arch. We artfully match the color, size, and shape of your prosthetic teeth to mirror your natural teeth so they blend beautifully with your smile. The procedure to place the titanium implant post may cause some discomfort, but the specialist will discuss the options they offer to maximize your comfort.

Dental implants are designed to endure the forces generated by chewing and can last for many years. The post is permanent because it fuses with your jawbone, and your prosthetic crown, bridge, or dentures can last for 10-15 years when properly cared for. Even if your prosthetic tooth is damaged, we can replace it with a new custom dental restoration without the need for surgery. Our dentist will discuss how to care for your implant-supported restoration.

Dental implants are easy to care for by following your daily oral hygiene routine. Simply brush and floss your implant-supported restoration twice daily just like your natural teeth. It's also important to maintain your biannual dental appointments so Dr. Marie can verify the integrity of your dental implant.
