If you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants may be just what you have been looking for! Dental implants provide a permanent solution for the replacement of missing teeth. They restore your ability to chew food, improve the appearance of your teeth, and restore your confidence. Our board certified surgeons at Advanced Dental Implant Center are some of the most highly qualified and experienced dental implant surgeons in the United States. See samples of our team’s dental implant cases at the bottom of this page.
Dentures vs. Implants
Dental Implants = An Advanced Solution
Dental implants are extremely safe and have been used in dentistry for nearly 40 years. Implants are small titanium posts which replace the roots of missing teeth. Once healed, implants provide a strong foundation upon which a crown or “cap” may be placed. Implant teeth look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Best of all, implant teeth are permanent and can last a lifetime with proper care. Our board certified surgeons have successfully placed thousands of dental implants.
Modern dental implants have success rates exceeding 95% and have a number of benefits over traditional treatments such as dental bridges. With a bridge, your dentist shaves down teeth next to your missing tooth to create space for the restoration. In addition to removing perfectly good tooth structure, shaving teeth down for a bridge may irritate the nerves of the teeth, leading to future root canals. With dental implants, the teeth next to the missing tooth are not touched. This eliminates unnecessary trauma to the adjacent teeth and the possible need for expensive and painful root canals.

Advanced Dental Implant Center are part of a professional affiliation of dental implant practices operated by oral surgeons, periodontists, prosthodontists, and restorative dentists. With the specialized techniques used by Advanced Dental Implant Center, such as zygomatic and pterygoid implants, nearly all patients qualify for same day dental implants from a dental perspective. Prospective patients require an initial workup that includes an oral examination, 3D radiographic evaluation, and medical history consultation. Some patients with certain medical histories may not qualify for surgical treatment. “Teeth-in-a-day”, “one day implant teeth”, “same day implant teeth”, etc. refers to the fact that on the day of surgery, patients will have teeth removed (unless all teeth are already missing, dental implants placed, and a screw retained prosthesis secured to these implants on the same day as the surgery. While this first set of teeth are permanent in the fact that they are secured to the dental implants by screws, these teeth are typically not the final set of teeth as the patient will be allowed to heal prior to the delivery of the final set of teeth. Furthermore, the patient will be allowed to suggest desired changes to the initial set of teeth prior to the fabrication of the final set of teeth. The initial set of screw retained implant teeth are permanent in the fact that they are not removable by the patient and can only be removed by personnel in a dental office. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime depending on the age of the patient when the implants were originally placed. Studies show that dental implants can last over 25 years with proper home care and regular professional maintenance.
