Our Unique approach To Implants
Dr. Gilliam uses his experience and professional abilities along with the latest tools to diagnose your oral condition during a dental check-up for analyzing the present condition of your teeth. Our implant dentist Dr. Gilliam will work in collaboration with you and create a customized treatment plan, that suits you individually. He will keep you well-informed throughout the entire treatment process so that you can understand what you can expect. Using a combination of cosmetic dentistry and restorative techniques, Dr. Gilliam’s advanced approach will have you smiling again in almost no time! On the day of surgery, the dental implant post – a screw made of titanium, will be surgically placed in your jawbone.
This process replaces the root of the missing tooth so that you can get a stable tooth restoration. Upon completion, you will be sent back home with a provisional, which means, you’ll not go without a missing tooth. This will also ensure that the implant will heal with the jaw bone. Post the healing period, Dr. Gilliam will place and fit the replacement tooth on the implant post. The replacement can be a crown, a full or partial denture, or a dental bridge. What you’ll receive will depend on which teeth you are missing and your individual dental needs.

If you have one, multiple or a full arch of missing teeth, you are likely an eligible candidate for dental implants. Also, you should be free of any gum disease or infection and have a good overall health.
This is one of the most common misconceptions we often hear from patients. Undergoing the dental implants procedure isn’t painful and feels similar to having your tooth pulled. Our patients, after undergoing the treatment said, “I hardly felt anything at all!” However, with the use of sedation all you will feel is a dull pressure at the sit of the implant surgery.
We make use of 3D technology and take detailed images of your mouth. This tells us where exactly are the nerves located and what can be the best possible location for placing the implant(s). Using this info we create a computer guide and use it during surgery for placing the implants precisely in the jaw bone. Once healed, you will receive your durable and natural appearing crowns that blends in well with your smile.
Yes, however it depends. In most of the cases we can remove a tooth, or multiple teeth, and place a dental implant on the same day.
We are very particular about placing dental implants and make sure to have them under the right conditions and in the precise location. Usually, we don’t see complications after placing the implants. If you experience any problem like pain, bleeding or find a visible part of the implant below the gumline – you might need a simple treatment for infection or need to have your implant replaced. Additionally, we can evaluate and treat implants placed by other dentists as well.
Dental implants can last for a lifetime when placed by an experienced dentist and cared for properly. While the crown might require replacement after few years of service due to normal wear and tear, the titanium post should last for years to come.
Clean your dental implants just like your normal teeth. Dr. Gilliam recommends brushing twice daily and flossing everyday. Make sure to maintain regular checkups and cleanings with your general dentist.
