Dental implants are changing the way people live. For patients with missing teeth, dental implants can provide patients the ability to eat virtually anything and allow them to smile with confidence. Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth, and they can also be used to secure dentures. Implants are titanium posts that get inserted into the jaw bone. After the implant bonds with the existing bone to provide a solid foundation, the replacement tooth looks, feels and function like a normal tooth. Furthermore, implants prevent the bone deterioration that typically results when a tooth is missing.

The main benefits of using computer-guided surgery include precise and accurate implant placement which allows for the best restorative outcome. Using a surgical guide to place your dental implants allows our dentists to reduce the amount of time it takes to place the implants, making it easier for our patients. We can create the most ideal treatment plan for each patient prior to the procedure taking place. We have 3D technology, 3D printers and CT scans in our office and on our onsite digital lab, making the process easy and predictable while giving our patients the best possible outcome each and every time. We can create temporary teeth prior to the procedure so that once the implants are placed we can insert the teeth during the same visit.
Same day implants, same day teeth, we make it all possible.
After your complimentary consultation, your journey to a new smile begins with a consultative evaluation by the dentists at Island Dental Associates. This is to make sure that you are a good candidate and this dental implant procedure is the right one for you. The consultation will include a full dental exam, 3-D digital impressions for a temporary bridge and a comprehensive plan for treatment. Afterwards, and if you are a candidate, an appointment will be made for your procedure.
While your healing takes place you will have two to three follow-up appointments with your dentist to check the progress of your healing. Approximately four to six months after your implants have been placed and you have healed, you will return to the office where you fill be fitted for your permanent and new smile made with all porcelain Zirconia. There may be a few short follow-up appointments after your dental implant fitting so that your restored smile looks and functions properly.
You will meet with your Dental Implant Team. This is the team that will be with you every step of the way from your consultation with your dentist to your post-operative appointments. They will answer any questions you may have.
