Dental implants procedures are the closest you’ll get to natural-looking, healthy teeth. They allow you to eat with confidence, speak with ease, smile, laugh heartily and spend time enjoying all of your everyday activities without thinking or worrying about your teeth.
This technology has progressed dramatically with today’s methods being fairly routine and predictable. Modern implants have been used for 30 years and are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth. Plus, they allow your new teeth to look, feel and function naturally. Dental implant surgery is the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone and prevents bone shrinkage. As an added benefit, Origin Dental Wellness utilizes Platelet-Rich Plasma to further strengthen and enhance regenerative growth.
Since the advent of the denture implant, engineering and enhancements to the implant have enabled dentists to expand the implant’s usefulness, including the replacement of missing or lost teeth. Today, dental implant techniques provide a wide range of tooth replacement solutions including:
The tooth implant is the most effective because it mirrors the size and shape of a patient’s natural tooth. This implant is often as strong as the patient’s original tooth. A titanium/zirconium implant (artificial root) is surgically placed in the jawbone then allowed to heal and integrate with the bone. Once the implant is in place and has had the appropriate time to adhere to your bone, a connector, known as an abutment is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crown. Next, the crown is custom-made in house with precision by our certified CEREC designer to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth just as well, if not better than your original tooth. The final result is a natural-looking, comfortable and functional tooth.
Additionally, a dental implant supported over-denture is a wonderful way to give your lower denture a more stable and solid feel. It is especially helpful if your lower jawbone has receded to the point it no longer can support a conventional over-denture with stability.
Origin Dental Wellness uses state-of-the-art components and the highest quality biocompatible materials. Origin Dental Wellness practices different types of dental implants that meet the increased demand for restorations with a superlative aesthetic natural look combined with proper management all while adhering to the health and maintenance of the surrounding soft tissue.

Curious about the amount of time it takes to replace your teeth with dental implants? There is no standard answer as each patient is different. After an initial consultation with Dr. Toler, she’ll provide you with a treatment plan including the estimated amount of time to complete the process. Total treatment time depends on your needs, medical and dental history, jawbone condition, and the technique and materials used. It can be as short as a few months, or more than a year for more complex conditions.
