A lot of dentists are offering dental implants , so what makes us different? You can read in detail below, but it boils down to these three take-aways.

  • Dr. Chapman uses the latest technology to get a 3D X-Ray (CBCT) and combines it with a 3D Optical Scan. This enables precision planning for the placement of your implant with Guided Implant Surgery.

  • Dr. Chapman exclusively places implants using guided implant surgical techniques. The information from the combined 3D X-Ray and Optical Scan, allows her to create a surgical guide personalized to each patient. That guide is crucial to ensure your implant is placed in the most ideal position for the function and esthetics of the new tooth.

  • Dr. Chapman is often able to extract your tooth (if needed), place a bone graft, and place your implant on the same day. This saves patients from having to come back for a separate appointment after getting your tooth extracted or bone graft placed to get the implant placed.

  • Lastly, Dr. Chapman will be responsible for replacing the missing tooth from start to finish. She’ll be involved at every step of the process to ensure the best possible outcome. That often includes extraction, bone grafting, implant placement, and ensuring a superior aesthetic and function for the new tooth.

A long-lasting choice, implant-supported dentistry brings you as close to growing new teeth as possible. Expertly placed in the same bone that once supported teeth, you'll often enjoy the strength and function of nature. Modern porcelains produce a life-like result that may leave you completely unaware that they aren't your natural teeth. An excellent choice for one or more missing teeth, dentures can also be attached to implants. The stability and sense of confidence you develop with implants will leave you pleasantly surprised.

A custom road map for your return to full dental function when incorporating implants must guide the way. Dr. Chapman calls upon the best technology available to help plan your restorative case. Digital x-rays, 3D mapping, models, photographs and case guides prove valuable. Dr. Chapman uses highly regarded specialists as needed to bring the components of your case together. But at all times, she serves as the quarterback of the entire plan. 

Careful planning followed by implant placement sets a solid foundation for an array of restorative options.

After the healing period, crowns or bridges will be custom-made and attached to the implants with small screws or dental cement. Numerous components help Dr. Chapman deliver the best result when completing the final stage. But it's the customization of your case from initial planning to final placement that makes all the difference. This allows a full range of services to be considered, from the replacement of one tooth to restoration of the entire mouth. Regardless of your situation, there's a solution for you.

One of Healthcare's Greatest Values

Even with all the benefits, the cost of dental implant procedures is an important consideration. When your case brings together the latest imaging, advanced training, and unique material technologies, this service offers one of the best values in modern health care. Compared to the replacement of other hard structures and joints of the body, most services with dental implants can be done at a small fraction of those costs. Better yet, most patients carry on with normal activities right away and usually enjoy a lifetime of normal chewing, bite stability, and appearance. But we know the cost of dental implants is an important part of creating a complete plan that works for you.

The cost of dental implant services involves several critical factors unique to each patient. A fee quoted without careful evaluation doesn't consider what's best for your mouth. And comparisons may not account for the difference in the quality of materials used, along with the training of the doctor performing this highly technical service. Dr. Chapman customizes treatment planning after she has spent time analyzing what would be best for each one.

One thing remains absolutely certain: You'll get the highest value possible in modern implant dentistry. That means years of natural function and a smile that's secure and makes you proud to show. We look forward to discussing how we can partner together for the best solution for you!
