The Modern Solution for Tooth Replacement

single-tooth-implantA dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the jaw to act as an artificial tooth root for a missing tooth. An implant is used to support a dental crown to replace one missing tooth, or a dental bridge or denture to replace multiple missing teeth. Dental implants are the most durable, lifelike and long-lasting of all tooth replacement options and with proper care can last a lifetime.

Dr. Davidson is highly trained and experienced in implant dentistry, and has completed hundreds of cases of dental implant treatment. He uses state-of-the-art 3D imaging and surgical guides to make implant placement precise, efficient and minimally invasive. The result is stable new replacement teeth that look and function just like real teeth.

Our Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implant placement is a precise and delicate procedure that requires great precision in diagnostics, planning and execution. Dr. Davidson is highly skilled and experienced in all aspects of implant dentistry. He employs the most sophisticated technology available to make your dental implant treatment accurate, efficient and minimally invasive.

State-of-the-art 3D diagnostics

Your treatment will start with detailed 3D diagnostics using our state-of-the-art cone beam dental scanner.

Dr. Davidson first starts with detailed diagnostics, which include full digital
X-rays and a 3D scan using our state-of-the-art cone beam dental scanner. The scanner takes a rapid series of X-rays in a full circle around your head and computer-processes them into clear, 3D 360-degree views of your teeth, jaws and surrounding anatomical structures.

These images can be viewed from any angle and magnified as desired for close-up analysis. Dr. Davidson will use this information to perform precise treatment planning.

Precision treatment planning

Dr. Davidson uses 3D software to plan out the treatment in detail ahead of time.

Dr. Davidson loads the CT scan images into special 3D implant planning software which he uses to map out the precise placement position, angle and depth of each implant.

If you have had missing teeth for a while and have suffered from bone loss in the jaw as a consequence, he will plan any necessary bone grafting needed for your implants to be stable.

Surgical guides for accurate placement

Dr. Davidson will create a surgical guide to assist him in placing your implants with maximum accuracy and efficiency. A surgical guide is a template that fits over your dental arch to show exactly where and at what angle your implants are to be placed. Use of the guide makes the implant surgery an accurate, efficient and minimally invasive procedure.

Bone grafting to provide sufficient implant support

Bone GraftingWhere there is not enough bone available to support an implant, Dr. Davidson places bone graft material to stimulate growth of new bone. This is often done at the same time the implant is being placed. Dr. Davidson uses advanced techniques and materials for minimally invasive bone grafting.

Dr. Davidson is able to perform many types of bone grafting in our own office. If the situation is highly complex, he partners with a trusted local specialist to perform the procedure under his guidance.

Same-day temporary restoration

After an implant is placed, there is a healing period before you can receive your final restoration that will make it possible for you to bite and chew normally. However, for implants in a visible area of your smile, Dr. Davidson will provide a temporary cosmetic restoration that will put no pressure on the implant but will let you maintain your appearance.

Your beautiful new teeth

Your final crowns, bridges or full-arch fixed-in new teeth will be made out of top-quality materials. Dr. Davidson will place your final restorations and make any adjustments needed so you are completely satisfied with the way they look, feel and fit. Your new teeth will have a totally natural appearance and will function very much like real teeth.

Keeping You Comfortable

We are dedicated to keeping you comfortable at all times during your treatment. Dr. Davidson gives very gentle and thorough injections so that you do not feel anything during your procedure. He uses the best equipment and techniques available to make sure your treatment is minimally invasive, efficient and nontraumatic. We provide blankets and pillows for added comfort in the treatment chair.
