What Is A Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that provides a permanent base for a fixed, replacement tooth. Compared to dentures, bridges and crowns, dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. Because they fit, feel and function like natural teeth, dental implants are quickly becoming the new standard in tooth replacement.
Why Consider Dental Implants?
Bad or missing teeth can cause pain and discomfort. It can erode our self confidence and stop us from smiling and socializing with others. Missing and failing teeth can also compromise our health by limiting our ability to chew and limiting our food choices. And while these are all serious issues, did you know that tooth loss also leads to bone loss?
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink and become brittle. Tooth loss will not only affect your smile, it will also change the shape of your face and make you look prematurely aged.

Dental Implant Options
If you have lost a single tooth due to an accident or from periodontal disease, that one tooth can be replaced using a dental implant.
Your new tooth will look and function just like your other natural teeth.
Occasionally a patient is missing more than one tooth, but still has healthy gums and surrounding teeth, and multiple implants are the best solution.
Two fixtures are implanted and the crown is attached, leaving other natural teeth intact.
FULL MOUTH IMPLANTS
Patients who need to replace a full upper and/or lower set of teeth can now receive full mouth implants.
One of our Doctors will place 4 implants and then attach a full set of teeth on top. This procedure is commonly referred to as All-On-4.

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect at my free implant consultation?
Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Plus, at New Day Smile Dental Group, our doctors are experienced in treating patients with complex cases that may even have been turned away by others.

Are implant procedures painful?
Our doctors do everything they can to make you as comfortable as possible. Depending on the procedure, you can elect to have local anesthesia or sedation. Many of our patients opt for sedation so they don’t feel anything during the procedure. Afterwards, most of our patients report that they experienced far less pain than anticipated.
What sedation dentistry options do you offer?
Will I have to go without teeth or my dentures during the process?
No. After the procedure, you will leave our office with temporary teeth or denture that allows you to eat and enjoy your everyday life.You will return to our office some time later where we'll replace your temporary teeth with your new, permanent teeth or denture.
How long is the recovery period?
Recovery time differs for every patient but many patients say they don’t experience significant discomfort and don’t even need pain medication after the procedure.
