Dental Implants

We want our patients to enjoy reliable, comfortable oral function and beautiful smiles. With dental implants, we can replace one missing tooth or secure dentures in place. A dental implant is a bio compatible titanium post that is inserted into your jawbone and functions as an artificial tooth root. Dental implants can improve your overall quality of life and provide the following benefits:

  • Look and feel natural
  • Allow you to speak normally
  • Eliminate dietary restrictions due to difficulty with chewing
  • Prevent bone loss after a tooth has been removed
  • Secure loose dentures, eliminating the need for adhesives
  • Reduce risk for losing more teeth
  • Improve self-confidence
  • Are easy to care for and maintain

First, Dr. Cavanaugh will evaluate your overall dental health and assess your bone structure. Dr. Cavanaugh performs routine implant placement surgery right in our office.  More advanced cases are referred to specialized implantologists. Modern anesthesia techniques allow you to remain comfortable during implant placement and most patients say that the surgery is even easier than having a tooth removed. The area will be allowed to heal for several weeks so that your bone can integrate with the titanium post. When healing is complete, a custom crown will be placed or your denture will be modified so it can be secured in place.
