  • Mingle and socialize more confidently with a full smile
  • Eat and enjoy all your favorite foods again
  • Avoid the bone loss in your jaw that occurs after losing teeth
  • Look younger and more robust
  • Improve your oral health and total body health
  • Feel better about your overall appearance

Improve Your Quality of Life With Better Oral Function

If you’re living without one or more of your teeth, there may be many adjustments you have to make in your life. You may be shy about showing your teeth out in public, so you routinely hide your smile behind your hand. When dining out, it may be tough to find something on the menu that you can comfortably chew. You settle for soft, bland food that does little to satisfy your palate.

Teeth implants from Fields Family Dentistry can change all that. Implants are prosthetic tooth roots that Dr. Fields will place in your jawbone to form a sturdy base for replacement teeth. He will use 3-D imaging from our cone beam CT scanner and create implant guides to ensure that your placement procedure is precise. We’ll numb the area we’re working on, and you can take advantage of laughing gas to help you relax.

The implants will actually fuse with your bone in a process called osseointegration. For most patients, their implants last for decades, if not the rest of their lives. Depending on how you take care of them, you’ll need to get new replacement teeth every five to seven years – although they often last longer than that.

With Our Implant Experience, You Have Lots of Choices

Below are some options you have for teeth implants:

  • Implant-Crown Combination – This is the perfect way to replace a single missing tooth. Your implant and crown will let you regain a complete smile and strong bite.
  • Implant-Supported BridgeThis bridge will replace several missing teeth in a row, anchoring to at least two implants. Unlike a conventional bridge, your dentist won’t have to reduce any healthy teeth.
  • Implant-Retained Dentures – Your teeth will stay firmly in place, thanks to a secure setup of snaps and balls that attach your new teeth to implants. You can remove them for cleaning.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – These are our most comfortable style of dentures. They are secured to implants using a sturdy metal bar. They stay in place and don’t need to be removed for cleaning. You just brush and floss.
  • All-on-4® and All-on-6 Dental Implants – Dr. Fields can anchor a complete arch of fixed teeth using just four or six implants. Since fewer implants are used, you’ll heal more quickly.
  • Full-Mouth Reconstruction – Enjoy having all your teeth back when your dentist performs a complete rehabilitation of your smile and bite.

Common Questions About Dental Implants
What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small posts made from titanium that Dr. Fields will insert into your jawbone to serve as replacement teeth roots. If you are missing one or more teeth, implants function as a base for several types of new replacement teeth, including crowns, bridges, dentures, and full arches of fixed teeth.

Do dental implants hurt?

Having a dental implant placed is not painful because your jaw will be numbed, plus you can stay completely relaxed with laughing gas throughout your procedure. Once you go home, you might require pain relievers for a day or two, but most of our patients report only taking over-the-counter medication following their dental implant procedure. Most feel well enough to return to work the day after.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants varies, depending mainly on how many implants you receive. In some cases, you may also need another procedure, like a tooth extraction or bone grafts, to prepare for implants. We’ll discuss cost with you during the planning stage of your implant procedure, so you know exactly what to expect. In addition, financing options can make your care manageable.
