Book Your Consultation

Life is too short to suffer with even one missing tooth. And because there are so many potential benefits associated with implants, you shouldn't trust your care to just any provider. Reach out to our Nashville, TN, practice today to take the first step toward the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve. 

A Closer Look at Dental Implants

Implants are a milestone in dentistry that has helped millions to experience a new lease on life. Because dental implants connect your replacement teeth directly to your jaw, they can allow you to:

  • Eat any foods you like - including barbecue and raw vegetables - without having to worry about your denture slipping.
  • Speak clearly.
  • Feel confident knowing that your custom restorations and dental implants are working together to make your smile look natural and attractive.

It's a common misconception that each missing tooth will require an implant. Although a single missing tooth is replaced with one crown and one dental implant, a bridge usually only requires two implants, and a full denture is usually supported by six to eight implants. 

Different types of implants
Dental implants can replace one tooth, several teeth, or an entire dental arch.

An Invaluable Hidden Benefit of Dental Implants

Most people are well aware of the stability that dental implants provide to crowns, bridges, and dentures. But many don't realize that they also stop your jaw from changing shape in ways that can compromise your oral health and make you look aged beyond your years.

Tooth roots provide stimulation to the bone tissue in the jaw. When this stimulation is gone, it signals to the body to place a lower priority on maintaining the bone tissue in that area. Over time, this causes the jaw to atrophy (shrink). This is what causes the stereotypical image of a puckered mouth and recessed chin that has long been associated with advanced age. Meanwhile, this can cause your remaining natural teeth to shift out of alignment.

Implants are the one and only restorative dentistry solution that can provide the stimulation your jaw needs in order to retain bone tissue and maintain your features. This is just one of several reasons why dental implants are a wise investment that can provide priceless benefits for the rest of your life.

Are Implants Right for Me? Primary Candidacy Factors

Virtually anyone who has suffered tooth loss could benefit from a solution that replaces both the root and the crown of those teeth, but dental implants aren't right for everyone. In order to qualify, you should have:

Sufficient Jawbone Tissue

Dental implants need a certain amount of bone tissue for support. If you have been missing teeth for a long time, you have probably suffered some jaw atrophy. But don't worry - a simple bone grafting procedure can restore your jaw and your candidacy for dental implants.

Good Oral Health

Dental implants require a healthy foundation. If you have active gum disease, or if any remaining natural teeth are decayed, this can lead to implant failure. We can resolve these issues prior to implant surgery to ensure the best possible outcome.

Good Overall Health

Certain health conditions raise the risks of dental implant placement. If you are diabetic, for example, you must have the condition under control. Otherwise, your risk of implant failure is too high to recommend dental implant placement surgery. 

A Tobacco-Free Lifestyle

The ability of your bone tissue to heal after implant placement surgery is the key to dental implant success. Nicotine compromises the amount of oxygen in your bloodstream, which slows your body's healing response. As a result, smokers and other tobacco users face a greater risk of dental implant failure. We recommend breaking the habit permanently at least a few months prior to surgery.

Why continue struggling to enjoy the foods you love, having to repeat yourself when you speak, and feeling self-conscious when it's time to smile for photos? Dental implants are a solution that can eliminate these frustrations and allow you to start enjoying a better quality of life. But you need a dental practice that can give you the very best returns on this investment.

The Procedure From Planning to Final Restorations

Because every dental patient has unique needs, dental implant treatment timelines can differ from one case to the next. Generally speaking, you can expect that your treatment timeline will involve at least two minor surgeries with about three to six months of healing time between them:

Dental Consultation

During your consultation at our Nashville, TN, practice, your dentist will discuss your goals and determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. This will involve taking x-rays to assess the health of your jawbone and any remaining teeth.

Implant Placement

During your first surgery, you will receive local anesthesia to numb the treatment site, as well as any sedation you have elected to receive. Once you have been made comfortable, your dentist will make an incision in the gums to access the bone tissue. Next, he will create a pilot hole in the tissue before inserting the titanium implants. Once the implants are in place, the gum tissue is sutured closed, covering the implants throughout the healing process.

Fusion

Over the next three to six months, your bone tissue will fuse to the titanium implants. This process is called osseointegration. We will schedule periodic checkups to monitor your progress and determine when you are ready to move on to the next step in your treatment.

Abutments

Once your dentist confirms that your implants have completely integrated with the jaw, you will undergo a minor surgery in which the gums will be incised and small devices called abutments will be attached to the implants. The abutments will connect your crown, bridge, or denture to the implants. When the abutments have been installed, your dentist will suture the gums closed in a way that leaves the abutments standing above the gumline.

Impressions

When your gums have healed (usually after about two weeks), your dentist can take impressions of your jaws that will be used to create your replacement teeth.

Restoration

Once your crowns, bridges, or dentures are ready, you will return to have them attached to the implants. At this time, your dentist can make any final adjustments to make certain your implant-supported replacement teeth fit precisely, feel comfortable, and meet your expectations in terms of their appearance. We carefully craft each replacement tooth to look entirely natural.

Our Sedation Options

Our Nashville practice understands that dental treatment of any kind can make many adults feel anxious, and that others simply want time to pass quickly and comfortably during a lengthy dental procedure. That's why we offer two types of sedation upon request:

IV Sedation

Nurse with IV drip

Intravenous (IV) sedation is administered directly to your bloodstream. This form of sedation can be instantly adjusted to provide precisely the level of sedation you require. You won't be completely unconscious, but you will be deeply relaxed and you won't likely have any memory of treatment after the effects wear off.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Pills in hand

Oral conscious sedation involves taking prescribed pills before arriving at our office. Like IV sedation, this option will place you in a deeply relaxed state of near-sleep, and you probably won't remember much of anything about your procedure afterward. During your initial consultation, we can help you determine which type of sedation is best for your needs.
