Redefining Confidence and Comfort

Navigating the difficulties of missing teeth can turn everyday joys into daunting challenges. From being confined to a limited diet of soft foods to experiencing a significant dip in self-esteem, the absence of teeth can profoundly affect your physical and mental well-being. Beyond the physical discomfort, the toll on your self-assurance can cast a shadow over your daily interactions. So, what’s the solution? Dental implants.

In modern dentistry, dental implants, especially full mouth dental implants, are a highly effective means to restore your radiant, self-assured smile. Through a seamless fusion with your jawbone, dental implants offer you the liberty to embrace life without any constraints. Regardless of how your smile was lost, we are here to provide a solution that can transform your life.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Getting Down to The Basics

Full mouth dental implants are designed to closely mimic the natural function of teeth, featuring a precise combination of three crucial components: a post, an abutment, and a restoration. These elements are seamlessly integrated into your jawbone, offering exceptional versatility when replacing multiple missing teeth.

With extensive expertise and access to cutting-edge surgical technology, Dr. Dave Dodrill oversees the strategic placement of your full mouth dental implants. This methodical approach allows us to customize dental implant procedures to cater to your unique dental requirements and aspirations, ensuring your dream smile is realized.

Placing, Restoring, and Smiling

When restoring your smile, our team does this in three phases – a consultation, the procedure day, and placing your final restoration:


Consultation & Planning

As with every successful procedure, it starts with a simple conversation. This conversation will include your medical history, smile and oral health concerns, and what you want your smile to look like. This conversation is arguably the most important, as we will use it to design your temporary and final restorations. We will then obtain digital diagnostics of your mouth and complete an oral exam to ensure your candidacy. The treatment plan we created includes your preferred sedation option, procedure guide, and final results. Once you approve this treatment plan, we will schedule you for full mouth dental implant surgery.


Procedure Day

On the day of your surgery, we’ll administer your sedation and begin placing your implants. We’ll make small incisions in your jawbone and strategically place your dental implants in predetermined spots with the most bone density to ensure optimal results. Once placed at a 45-degree angle, we will attach abutments to the top of your implant posts and place your Teeth-In-A-Day temporary restoration. Our Teeth-In-A-Day full mouth restoration with dental implants offers a one-day solution, granting you a new smile with temporary teeth fixed to your implants.


Healing & Final Restorations

Once your implants are placed, they need 4-6 months to heal and fuse with your jawbone through osseointegration. Once your dental implants have fused, they create a strong, lasting foundation for your final restoration. We’ll use the most advanced dental technology and the highest quality materials to create the most functional and aesthetically pleasing smile. This final prosthesis is created to withstand decades of daily use with the return of nearly 95% of the functionality of your natural teeth. We’ll provide you with a smile that truly lasts a lifetime!
