Dental Implants Get Beautiful, Realistic New Teeth

Rebuild Your Smile With Safe Dental Implants in Gillette, WY

The noticeable effects of missing teeth, like gaps in your smile and difficulty chewing food, are bad enough. But what you don’t see – at least not at first – is even worse. With no teeth to stimulate your jaw, your bone will shrink over time. Fortunately, zirconia (ceramic) dental implants in Gillette, WY can save your smile, your jaw, and your health too.

Implants function like natural tooth roots and should be made of a material that is compatible with your body, which is why we never use metal implants. In addition to keeping your bone intact, our dental implants will give you:

  • Secure teeth that stay firmly in place rather than becoming loose or dislodged like unreliable dentures
  • A better long-term fit since your implants naturally fuse with your jawbone
  • The ability to eat anything you want, including nutritious foods like crunchy apples
  • A smile that’s whole again, whether you need to replace one tooth or all your teeth
  • Replacement teeth that won’t irritate or inflame your gums like slippery dentures

At Synergy Dental Center, we use zirconia implants because they’re a biocompatible option for patients. If you’re interested in knowing more, we recommend that you read the recently released information from the FDA regarding the possible adverse effects of metal implants. To schedule a consultation, call 307 682 3100 now.

Choose From Many Dental Implant Procedures

Since everyone’s situation is different, we offer a variety of dental implant solutions. We will happily help you determine which one best meets your needs, whether you are missing one tooth, several teeth, or a mouth full of teeth.

Dr. Porter holds a fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI), so you can trust in his extensive training in the latest techniques in modern tooth replacement. He is also a board-certified naturopath, which means he will only use materials that are safe for your entire body.

He plans your treatment with cutting-edge technology like digital X-rays and impressions, CAD/CAM software, dental lasers, 3-D CT scanners, and more. To place your implants, he uses a precise computer-guided procedure.

We can make your smile whole again with implant restorations like:

  • A Single Implant Crown – A single dental implant topped with a single metal-free crown replaces one tooth that has been knocked out, fallen out, or extracted.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – Our implant-supported bridge consists of three or more teeth set into a base and attached to your jaw using implants. You can replace anywhere from a few teeth to an entire arch.
  • Dental Implant Dentures – Our implant-supported dentures are more stable and reliable than removable dentures alone.
  • All-on-4® Dental Implants – In this procedure, Dr. Porter will remove any teeth necessary, place the implants, and attach your new teeth – all in one appointment! It’s a great choice if you need to fully rehabilitate your smile.

Our commitment to your health and happiness is to make sure you always leave our office with teeth! To see if you’re a candidate for Gillette, WY dental implants, call 307 682 3100 for a consultation at Synergy Dental Center. You can also schedule an appointment online.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Modern dental implants function as artificial roots for replacement teeth. Implants are anchored directly in your jawbone like the roots of natural teeth are. Your jaw bonds to the implants to keep them securely in place. This provides a stable support system for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implants also stimulate your jawbone, reducing your risk of bone loss, which is common after someone loses teeth.

Are dental implants painful?

The dental implant placement is oral surgery, so you will be completely numbed and sedated, if desired, during the procedure. You may feel some discomfort as you recover, but most patients report being able to chew food the day of their procedure. Many only need over-the-counter pain medication in the days following implant placement.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost for dental implant treatment can vary widely depending on the number of implants you need, their location, and the condition of your mouth. The only way to get a good idea of your cost is to schedule an initial exam and consultation. We’ll also take detailed images to help plan your treatment. Then we can give you an estimate of your cost.

Will my dental implants look natural?

No one but your dentist – or anyone else looking at an X-ray of your jaw – will likely ever see your implants. The restorations attached to your implants are the only part that is visible to others when you smile. Your implants not only give you a natural-looking smile, but they will feel natural too. Unlike other tooth replacements, restorations secured by implants won’t slip out of place.
