Dental Implants at a Glance

Dental implants are permanent false teeth that can restore your smile and overall function. Made up of three components – a titanium or ceramic post, an abutment and a restoration – dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. Secured in your jawbone to limit bone recession, dental implants are one of the most versatile tooth replacements available, able to replace any number of missing teeth. Dental implants provide bone support for a single dental crown, a dental bridge, a denture or our All-on-X prosthesis. Requiring the precision and skill of Dr. Kumar and our advanced surgical technology to create seamless, predictable surgeries, dental implants are a routine treatment here at Wickham Dental Care. Dental implants are one of the most versatile tooth replacements available and with our expertise, we can help you experience a life of health, function and confidence.

With Dental Implants, You Have a Choice

Creating a smile that’s healthy and unique to you is our top priority. We provide personalized options to meet your smile goals with our fully customizable dental implant services:

Single Tooth Replacement

Missing one tooth may leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile, but it can also create larger issues in your mouth and jaw. Teeth may shift to fill the gap or you may find yourself unable to chew certain foods. A single dental implant can be used to replace the missing tooth and serve as a permanent solution to these problems.

Multiple Tooth Replacement

Having to replace multiple teeth can seem daunting when involving bridges and crowns that need replacements or partial dentures that require adhesive and food restrictions. With dental implants, multiple teeth can be replaced with just one post to restore your smile for you to enjoy for a lifetime.

Implant Supported Dentures

Used to create a full mouth restoration, our implant supported dentures are removable dentures that attach to surgical implant posts that create a smile you deserve while limiting bone recession. Implant supported dentures attach to your mouth securely without the need of adhesive to stay in place while allowing patients the option to take them out for cleaning.

Full Mouth Dental Implants

If you have many missing or failing teeth, you may qualify for full mouth dental implants that are permanently fixed in your mouth just like natural teeth. Your brand new set of teeth are attached to four or more posts that are implanted into your jawbone to restore your function and cosmetic benefits of a healthy new smile.


What to Expect From Your Dental Implant Journey

Step 1: Personalized Consultation

We know not every smile is alike. We also know everyone is looking for a smile that is specific and unique to them. Here at Wickham Dental Care, we make it our top priority to not only deliver beautiful, lasting results, but to create personalized treatment plans to restore your smile. We will begin your restoration journey with a consultation that includes comprehensive radiography and 3D diagnostic impressions and creating a treatment plan for your smile goals.

Step 2: Precise Dental Implant Placement


Wickham Dental Care's Success in Dental Implant Surgery

Following your consultation, you will undergo surgery. While this may involve tooth extractions and bone grafting performed by Dr. Kumar utilizing our advanced dental technology, our guided surgeries help us restore your smile with ease to create optimal, predictable results. You will be sedated and resting comfortably.

Step 3: Final Restorations and New Beginnings

Before After

Once your dental implants are placed in your jawbone for a secure foundation, we will attach a temporary tooth replacement the same day. Over the next 12 weeks, your implants will heal and fuse with your jawbone through the process of Osseointegration. We will see you back to create a mold for your restoration and ensure that your dental implants are healing well. Once healed, we will place your final restoration. With proper hygiene, your dental implants come with a warranty so you can enjoy the food you love, conversate with ease and enjoy a fully restored smile once again!

Why Dental Implants?

Known for restoring numerous smiles of missing one or all of your teeth, failing or decayed teeth, dental implants provide countless advantages over other tooth replacement options. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not require healthy teeth to be present to support the restoration and do not require messy adhesives to stay in place like dentures. Dental implants only need proper jawbone density to remain secure and strong and will provide stimulation to keep the bone healthy and limit bone recession. Dental implants are stable enough to restore more than 99% of natural biting and chewing power. For this reason alone, dental implants are one of the preferred solutions for tooth and self-confidence restoration.

The Lasting Benefits of Dental Implants

Am I a Candidate for Full Mouth Dental Implants?

If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be a great candidate for dental implants to resolve the issue and fill the gap where the tooth or teeth were located. You can expect to be a candidate if you have one or more of the following:

Frequently Ask Questions

The installation procedure for dental implants is comfortable and painless as you are relaxing in a sedated state. Once your surgery is finished, you may experience some pain and swelling immediately after. Once your implants have some time to heal, they should function and feel just like normal teeth.

Most of our dental implant surgeries take about 2.5 hours per full-arch dental implants. If you’re receiving a single dental implant, the procedure can last anywhere from 1 to 2 hours.

Showing off that brand new, permanent smile is exciting! But ensuring your recovery from the initial implant surgery is completely healed can take about 12 weeks. Once the swelling has subsided, we can create your dental restoration that will sit permanently on the implant. If you opt to get full mouth dental implants, recovery may slightly longer.

Dental implants do tend to be more expensive than other options due to the quality of the materials they are made with as well as the process that goes into creating each tooth replacement. Dr. Kumar and our team work with several insurance companies and third-party financing companies to help our patients get affordable dental implant treatment.
