Are you missing one, some, or all of your teeth? If so, you’ve come to the right place. White Palm Dental offers dental implants using the latest technology and techniques to restore your smile’s health, function, and natural appearance. This gold standard solution for replacing missing teeth delivers superior results.

Dental implants may be ideal for replacing:

  • One or several missing teeth
  • Complete arches of missing teeth
  • Teeth with irreparable damage

Dr. McGavin and his team exhaust all resources to save your natural teeth before ever recommending dental implants. In circumstances where a tooth needs to be replaced, implants are the most ideal treatment option as they closely mimic the natural design of teeth.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium, screw-shaped post that is placed in the jawbone to serve as a substitute for missing tooth roots. As the area heals, the implant fuses to the bone in a process called osseointegration, providing a stable foundation to support one or more replacement teeth.

At White Palm Dental, we offer a range of implant restorations, including the following:

  • Single Implants: A dental crown placed on a single implant can replace a missing tooth, providing a secure and esthetic tooth replacement option.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: Unlike traditional fixed bridges that are secured to natural teeth, implant-supported bridges rely on dental implants for support, providing a durable and stable tooth replacement solution when missing multiple teeth.

What Is the Dental Implant Procedure?

3D Imaging: At White Palm Dental, we use state-of-the-art 3D CBCT technology to enhance your implant process. The 3D imaging tool provides highly detailed views of your oral structures and ensures you have adequate bone mass for implant success. CBCT scans help facilitate implant placement, ensuring the long-term success of the procedure.

Establishing Candidacy: Candidates for dental implants must be in good health and have adequate bone density to support their replacement teeth. If you have bone loss, Dr. McGavin may recommend a bone graft to prepare the area for a successful implant procedure.

Implant Placement: Dr. McGavin will plan your implant using the 3D images obtained from the CBCT. With advanced software, he plans exactly where the implant will be placed so that it corresponds correctly with the future location of the crown.  In certain cases, he may use the digital plan to make a custom surgical guide that allows him to place your implant in your jawbone precisely where it needs to be. These guides provide incredible precision in placement of the implant, minimize pain, decrease postoperative complications, and enhance treatment outcomes and success.

Placing Your Restoration: Dr. McGavin will wait for the area to heal, which can take 3-6 months, before proceeding with fabrication of the crown. Digital scans or impressions of the site will be made and sent to skilled lab technicians to create the implant restoration from the highest quality materials. Once the crown has been made, you will return to have your implant restoration permanently secured in place.
