Rebuild and Restore Your Smile

If you have lost a tooth or several teeth recently, dental implants may be an ideal way to restore your smile. The gold standard in tooth replacement, implants are placed directly into the jaw bone for lasting support and offer a natural-looking, seamless smile. After taking a Cone Beam CT scan, Dr. James Lamb can determine whether placing dental implants in the areas with missing teeth will be the best option for you. Our office uses Guided Implant Surgery techniques to ensure optimal placement of dental implants, with a high degree of precision and success. Dr. Lamb’s goal is to save your teeth whenever possible but sometimes dental implants are necessary to preserve the function and appearance of your smile. For many patients with missing teeth, getting a dental implant is a valuable investment in their smile.

Your Dental Implant Options

Dental implants blend seamlessly into the smile to replace missing teeth with screw-like implants that adhere with the jaw bone. As you bite and chew with the attached dental crown, the implant provides the same bone stimulation as a natural tooth root, which keeps your bone levels healthy and protects the integrity of your smile.

Single dental implant: If you are missing even one tooth, your oral health is at risk. Without a tooth to stimulate the jaw bone, bone atrophy begins to occur which can lead to shifting of other teeth or increased risk of infection. We can replace your missing tooth with a natural-looking implant and crown the same day a tooth is removed.

Multiple dental implants: Missing more than one tooth is common and should be addressed immediately. Unlike a tooth supported bridge which relies on surrounding teeth to support the restoration, implants provide a healthy, more natural alternative to bridges, which will never shift, decay or require root canal treatment.

Full arch dental implants: If you have dentures and are looking for a more stable, healthier alternative, we can complete your smile in one visit. This option uses a number of dental implants (as few as four) surgically placed in the jaw bone to support a custom, natural-looking prosthesis. There are no pastes or need to worry about slipping dentures; this option is designed to stay in place.
