If you’re suffering from the loss of one or more failing or decayed teeth, or even all of your teeth, you might feel a lack of self-confidence. Missing teeth can not only cause more severe oral issues that can affect the entire body, but they can also result in changes to your facial appearance from bone recession. No matter how many teeth you are missing, dental implants are considered our “gold standard” solution. These permanent tooth replacements restore your oral health, smile esthetics and dental function for decades. Our dental implant surgeries are led by our experienced, board-certified dentist Dr. John Marshall, who has been installing dental implants as a regular treatment since 2020 and has created more than 1,000 healthy, beautiful smiles. Not only can Dr. Marshall bring your smile goals to life with the placement of a brand-new dental implant, he can restore any failing dental implants you presently have, as well!
Dental implants are permanent false teeth that can restore your smile and overall function. Made up of three components – a titanium or ceramic post, an abutment and a restoration – dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants provide bone support and a stable foundation for a single dental crown, a dental bridge, a denture, or a full-arch prosthesis. The post of the dental implant is surgically placed into your jawbone to create a strong foundation for your new set of teeth while the abutment aids the post with a place for the restoration to sit and allow your new smile to perform daily functions such as chewing and talking. Placing dental implants securely in the jawbone limits bone recession and preserves your facial appearance. Dental implants are one the most versatile tooth replacements available, able to replace any number or missing teeth to restore not only a beautiful smile, but a healthy quality of life!
Personalized and catered to your smile goals is our priority when it comes to dental implant treatment plans. From your first appointment with Dr. Marshall to your final result, we ensure that every piece of this process is seamless and comfortable. We will start with completing your consultation with Dr. Marshall at our Elyria, OH or Grafton, OH offices where we will discuss your medical history, smile goals, complete digital x-rays to determine if you are a candidate. From there, we will build a custom treatment plan with your smile goals in mind and undergo surgery. This may involve tooth extractions and bone grafting performed by Dr. Marshall, utilizing our advanced dental technology for precise and optimal results. During your surgery, you will be sedated and resting comfortably. In many cases, we attach a temporary tooth replacement the same day so you don’t have to be without your radiant smile! Over the next several months, your mouth to heal. During the healing process, you will be able to enjoy the foods you love, conversate with ease and enjoy a fully restored smile once again.
When combining our experienced and compassionate doctor with our fully customized dental implant treatment plans, you will receive a brand-new smile that is specific to your oral health goals and a restored self-confidence that will last a lifetime!
At Minnillo & Marshall Dental, we know that not every smile is the same. This is why we provide personalized options to meet your smile goals with our fully customizable dental implant services:
Missing one tooth may leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile, but it can also create larger issues in your mouth and jaw. Teeth may shift to fill the gap or you may find yourself unable to chew certain foods. A single dental implant can be used to replace the missing tooth and serve as a permanent solution to these problems.
Made from material similar to titanium, zirconia fixed bridges offer attractive results for one or more missing teeth. Zirconia is biocompatible and naturally tooth-colored and won’t stain, chip or break. In addition to providing permanent function and beauty, zirconia bridges offer strength and durability, making them a great option for permanently replacing your missing teeth.
Used to create a full mouth restoration, our implant supported dentures are removable dentures that attach to surgical implant posts that create a smile you deserve while limiting bone recession. Implant supported dentures attach to your mouth securely without the need of adhesive to stay in place while allowing patients the option to take them out for cleaning.
If you have many missing or failing teeth, you may qualify for full mouth dental implants that are permanently fixed in your mouth just like natural teeth. Your brand-new set of teeth are attached to four or more posts that are implanted into your jawbone to restore your function and cosmetic benefits of a healthy new smile.
If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be a great candidate for dental implants to resolve the issue and fill the gap where the tooth or teeth were located. You can expect to be a candidate if you have one or more of the following:
The installation procedure for dental implants is comfortable and painless as you are relaxing in a sedated state. Immediately after your surgery is finished, you may experience some pain and swelling. Once your implants have some time to heal, they should function and feel just like normal teeth.
Even with our customized treatment plans, most dental implant surgeries take about 2.5 hours per full-arch dental implants. If you’re receiving a single dental implant, the procedure can last anywhere from 1 to 2 hours.
We know you’re eager to show off that brand-new smile, but recovering from the initial implant surgery can take about three months. Once the swelling has subsided, we can create your dental restoration that will sit permanently on the implant.
We know that a lot of consideration goes into your initial dental appointment, but we believe cost shouldn’t be one of them. We work with you by accepting many dental insurances and offering third-party financing through CareCredit and Proceed Finance to deliver care you deserve at the affordable cost you expect.
