Missing or broken-down teeth? Replace them with dental implants by an experienced specialist.
As a periodontist, Dr. Sanders is an expert in the placement of dental implants. He has been providing implant treatment since 1987 and has placed over 8,000 implants during his career. By using his extensive knowledge and expertise as well as the latest 3D imaging techniques, he can provide precise, accurate placement—even in complex cases.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is made of titanium and permanently inserted into the jawbone. Depending on how many teeth need to be replaced, dental implants can be used to support crowns, bridges or dentures.
Dental implants provide strong and stable tooth replacement. They look, act and feel very much like real teeth. With implants, you can eat, chew, brush and floss just as you would with healthy, natural teeth, and when properly cared for, they can last a lifetime.
Highly Trained and Experienced Implant Placement
What determines the success of implants is their precise diagnosis and skilled surgical placement. As a periodontist, Dr. Sanders is a specialist in dental implant surgery. He has been performing dental implant surgeries since 1987 and has successfully placed over 8,000 implants during his career.
Detailed 3D Planning
Dr. Sanders uses advanced 3D technology to plan implant treatment.
Key to Dr. Sanders’ successful treatment is his use of advanced 3D imaging technology. Many times as the first step of the treatment process, Dr. Sanders requests 3D X-ray and surface scans using the latest state-of-the-art imaging equipment. This enables him to view all of your oral structures in detail (including all the bone and soft tissue). The scan provides a 360-degree view of your entire mouth and jaw area, which Dr. Sanders views in special implant planning software.
The software allows him to meticulously plan out the procedure and the position of your implants so that the surgery is smooth and efficient. Dr. Sanders knows that precise planning is vital to the correct and comfortable placement of your implants.
Expert Bone Grafting
When teeth have been missing for a long time it results in bone loss. It may then be necessary to receive bone grafting to augment the jawbone. Dr. Sanders performs minimally invasive bone regeneration to rebuild the necessary bone support. He also uses special growth factors which reduce swelling and postsurgery discomfort and significantly speeds the healing process.
Tooth Replacement Options
An implant-supported bridge.
Dental implants are not just for replacing individual teeth—they can also be used to replace multiple teeth in a row, or even a whole arch of teeth, either as a removable denture or as permanently fixed-in teeth.
Replacing Multiple Teeth
To replace multiple teeth in a row, Dr. Sanders recommends an implant-supported bridge. This allows Dr. Sanders to replace your teeth without alteration to any of your adjacent teeth.
Full-Arch Teeth Replacement
If you need to replace a whole arch of teeth, Dr. Sanders can provide different options. A removable snap-in denture is attached to implants that are stably anchored in your jaw and can be easily removed for cleaning. Snap-in dentures provide you with excellent stability and only require as few as two implants per lower arch.
For the most stability and chewing power, teeth fixed to implants are the best option. Your new teeth never have to come out of the mouth, and you can enjoy nearly full chewing power.
