Bismarck Dental Implants
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are widely regarded as the best solution for those with a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. An implant consists of an artificial root (similar to your natural tooth root) inserted into your jawbone where a tooth is missing. These titanium and biocompatible roots fuse with your natural bone to create a stable foundation for an artificial tooth or crown. Once the implant is topped with the crown it restores the function and beauty of your smile.
The entire process of getting a dental implant can be carried out at the Aesthetic Dental Center. Dr. Sellers is one of only a few prosthodontists (implant specialists) in the area and can place or restore implants in-house. She uses the latest implant technology and provides a number of services that use dental implants to offer a more long-lasting and accomplished result.
Although this is a surgical procedure, our team ensures your comfort by answering any questions, offering sedation options, and pampering you with our in-office comforts.
Guided Implants for a Modern Finish
The process of placing a dental implant requires dentists to undergo additional training and use advanced technology. Dr. Sellers not only qualified as a prosthodontist but also employs the use of an i-CAT® machine. This modern piece of equipment allows us to take 3D images of your mouth in less than 30 seconds. We can use these detailed images to plan your implant procedure.
Here are a few ways i-CAT® scans help us plan the placement of your dental implants:
In addition to these helpful features; Dr. Sellers can fully plan the surgical procedure from start to finish. This allows her to identify any potential issues and provide a predictable outcome.
The scan itself is over in less than half a minute and allows you to sit while the Cone Beam Imaging system takes photos of your face, mouth, and jaw. The benefits of using i-CAT for placing dental implants are felt throughout the procedure as it reduces treatment time and helps Dr. Sellers provide a fantastic result.
Our Dental Implant Services
Dental implants can be used for a number of high-tech services. Each of these treatments uses implants as a base for restoring the functionality of your smile. 98% of patients have reported success with dental implants, so we hope you can benefit too. Here are a few of the top services Dr. Sellers provides in our state-of-the-art office.
This fixed denture option is great for those who need to replace a full arch of teeth. This modern treatment uses four implants to stabilize a full denture. With this option, you can eat all foods and not worry about the denture becoming unstable. Plus, the implants fuse with your jawbone, which keeps it healthy and prevents deterioration.
When you need a full denture to replace an entire row of missing teeth, a removable implant denture is a great option. Although it is removable, the denture sits on 2-4 implants so is held into place on a steady foundation. The implants not only help hold your denture in place but also support your facial muscles and preserve jawbone.
All implant procedures require a healthy jawbone as the root is inserted into this area. If there is insufficient bone volume, the implants won’t be able to stabilize. If you don’t have healthy jawbone due to injuries or infection, Dr. Sellers can use a bone graft to compensate for this. She can take bone from your body, use a synesthetic substitute, or a donor. The ideal option will be discussed during your visit.
We have been to Dr. Sellers and her staff many times and we received wonderful services every time. I would recommend anyone to go there from cleaning to implants, crowns. THEY ARE THE BEST!
