We can replace a single missing tooth with the closest thing to natural teeth: a single dental implant. A dental implant’s post functions as the tooth root, stimulating healthy bone growth and offering reliable function. Each implant is restored with a custom dental crown, giving you a seamless smile with natural-looking esthetics. No one will know the difference!
We offer full arch dental implants, an immediate load dental implant option that offers you superior stability and complete function. The procedure is fully guided to give you predictable results. If you are suffering from decaying or missing teeth, this may be the ideal teeth replacement option for you to transform your smile.
Traditional dental bridges require you to weaken adjacent teeth to act as the foundation of your new bridge. Instead, we leave healthy teeth untouched and use one or more dental implants to support a new bridge of teeth. This is ideal for those with two or more missing teeth in a row.
If you need an implant dentist in Hilliard, OH, Dr. James Blank and Dr. Madison Wright, along with the entire staff at Blank Dental Group, are on call to give you personalized dental implant treatment. When you schedule an initial consultation, you’ll be welcomed into our office, where you’ll discuss your dental and medical history before we take digital X-rays to prepare your custom treatment plan. We’ll even be able to show you a preview of your new smile with our “smile simulation” technology!
On the day of surgery, we’ll make sure you’re comfortable and prepared with our sedation options (oral, IV and nitrous oxide). If it’s called for, we’ll perform any necessary tooth extractions and bone grafting, then using our fully guided system to ensure an efficient procedure with precise and predictable results, we will perform your painless procedure. With the latest technology at our fingertips, it’s highly possible that we will be able to attach a temporary tooth or set of teeth at this same appointment!
With your temporary prosthesis, you’ll be able to eat comfortably and enjoy restored smile esthetics while you heal over the next three or more months. Once you are fully healed, your custom-made final and permanent prosthesis will be placed, and you’ll be on your way, wearing the smile of your dreams!
A dental implant is made up of three parts: a titanium or ceramic post, an abutment and a restoration. Built to function like natural tooth roots, dental implants provide bone support and a stable foundation for a single dental crown, a dental bridge, a denture or a full arch prosthesis.
Many patients are candidates for dental implants already or can qualify after receiving preparatory treatments like bone grafting and tooth extractions. Candidacy is more accurately determined after a comprehensive consultation and evaluation with an implant dentist.
The cost of dental implants is based on many factors, including how many teeth are missing and for how long, the types of materials used, and what additional procedures are needed. Our team can help you apply for dental financing and will file insurance claims on your behalf to help you afford treatment.
Dental implant treatment can range from a few months to over a year. In many cases, implants can be surgically placed soon after the consultation and treatment plan are complete. For patients needing bone grafting, this may be a separate procedure requiring several months of healing before dental implant surgery. After dental implants are placed, healing can take three or more months before optimal integration is achieved and a final restoration can be permanently attached. In many cases, patients can wear a temporary restoration during healing.
Dental implants are designed to last for decades and have the potential to last for the rest of your life. Surgical technology and clinical experience, along with your health habits, ultimately affect the longevity of your implants. Choosing an experienced implant team like ours at The Blank Dental Group provides more precise and accurate surgery that better guarantees the long-term success of your treatment.
