Surgical Dental Implants

Tooth loss unfortunately is something that can occur for a variety of reasons. At Davenport Dental it is essential to provide the best solution for each situation. With a thorough examination, we walk each patient through all their options. This ensures that each patient will know if implants are the best option for them and their situation.

With over 10 years of experience placing and restoring implants Dr. Davenport has the expertise to get each of his patients the best care possible.

An Implant is one of 3 pieces necessary to restore a missing tooth. An abutment and crown are placed after the implant has integrated allowing for complete restoration of a tooth. Often multiple teeth are missing. Implants can restore one missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or even all missing teeth. At Davenport Dental we pride ourselves in providing patients with all their implant options.

Replace One Tooth A single implant is inserted into the bone to replace the root part of that tooth. A crown then goes on top to simulate an actual tooth. This treatment choice has the highest success rate, making it your best long-term investment for replacing a single missing tooth. Even if the initial cost is slightly higher than other options, it is the most cost-effective solution over time. An implant will never decay or need root canal treatment, and feels just like the tooth that was there.

Replace Multiple Teeth If you have more than one tooth missing, implants provide an ideal replacement mechanism. You don’t even need one implant for every missing tooth. Instead, implant teeth can act as supports for fixed bridgework. Example, if you are missing three teeth in a row, Dr. Davenport can place two implants, one on either side of the gap, and a crown in between that has no implant underneath. That way, you won’t need to use any of your remaining natural teeth as bridge supports, which could weaken them and make them more susceptible to decay.
