More people each year are turning to implants as the best solution for restoring their missing teeth, their smiles and their quality of life. Implants are titanium posts (false roots) that are placed into your jaw bone and act like the natural roots of your teeth. Your bone attaches to the titanium post and anchors stronger to it than a natural tooth.
For more than 30 years, Dr. Cameron Edwards has been placing implants. As a Fellow of The International Congress of Oral Implantologists, through his extensive experience and by utilizing the latest materials and technology—he will deliver the absolute best quality of care.
Our in-house lab will custom make your crown or denture to fit perfectly over your implant(s). We utilize 3-D imaging, surgical guides and Implants made in the USA. Your final same-day restoration will look and feel like your natural teeth. New and experienced denture wearers and people with one or more missing teeth—are turning to implants as the most sophisticated choice for restoring their teeth, their smiles and their quality of life. Best of all, we offer lifetime implant replacements!*
Dental Implants more closely represent your natural teeth and are simply the best solution for replacing a missing tooth or teeth.
Dental Implants will allow you to eat, speak, smile and live with confidence. Additionally, dental implants help maintain your bone structure, allowing for a more youthful look throughout your life. They are titanium false roots that are placed into your jaw bone and act like the natural roots of your teeth. Implants are also used to replace failed root canals or baby teeth when there is no adult successor.
From a single tooth to a whole mouth, we believe that implants are the best solution for the replacement of missing teeth.
Get your smile back. Get your confidence back. Change your life with implants!
Our 3D Imaging machine delivers sharper-than-ever images of your mouth and skull with unparalleled definition, better image quality and with the lowest dose of radiation on the market today. The advantage that 3D imaging holds over regular dental x-rays is that bone structure, bone density, tissues and nerves can be viewed clearly. 3D scans can be completed in less than thirty seconds. This means that far less radiation enters the body than if a regular set of bitewing X-rays were taken. Our main use for 3D scans is to aid us in planning your implant, oral surgery and complex extraction treatments. 3D scans vastly reduce the time it takes to place implants as it takes the guess work out of the procedure.
Our imaging options will allow us to better approach special dental cases; such as impacted teeth with greater precison and ease. Our machine allows us to define an image area—even after imaging—without the need for a second X-ray.
3D scans allow us to magnify specific areas of your head, specifically, we can easily view cross-sectional images of your jaw—making treatment planning more accurate, easier and faster.
Here are some of the main ways in which 3D scans are used in our office:
3D scans are quick and simple to perform. We will have you comfortably stand in front of our machine and our Dental Assistant will guide you through the steps. The unit automatically determines the correct tilt of your head. The motorized 3-point head fixation and stable handles give you the necessary support. The integrated temple width measurement ensures an orbit specific to your skull and jaw and thereby results in high image sharpness.
This stable patient positioning prevents motion blurring. Previous patients report that our 3D scanner is comfortable because they remain in a standing position at all times. Additionally, the scanner provides an open environment, meaning that claustrophobic feelings are eliminated. The 3D scan is an incredible tool that is minimizing the cost of dental treatment, reducing treatment time and enhancing the end results of our dental surgery.
Our 3D machine utilizes the latest technology—Sharp Layer Technology; panoramic imaging with Direct Conversion Sensor (DCS ). This allows us to generate several thousand images during a single rotation. The fragments with the best focus are automatically combined to form one X-ray image with incomparable sharpness. We produce high resolution images of your entire jaw—every time.
