Dental implant treatment has revolutionized dental care and allowed people with missing teeth to have secure, attractive comfortable fixed teeth.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that are surgically placed in the jawbone where teeth are missing. Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth. These versatile implants can support a single tooth, a bridge of one or more teeth, or even an entire jaw.
In order for dental implants to successfully support prosthetic teeth long-term, osseointegration must occur. Osseointegration is the biological process that allows a patient to have fixed teeth supported by dental implants. It is the process by which living bone fuses with a titanium implant to form a anchorage for prosthetic teeth.
- Reduced Treatment Time -
Teeth In A Day® is the centerpiece for cutting-edge dental care at Pi Dental Center. This trademarked protocol was developed at Pi Dental Center and allows patients to have stable non-removable teeth in a single visit. In the past, the conventional process for getting an implant took from three to six months or longer. During this drawn-out period, the patient would wear a removable denture while they waited for their bone to heal. The Teeth In A Day® procedure has reduced this lengthy procedure to just one day! The Teeth In A Day® protocol has been used successfully at Pi Dental Center for over 26 years.
"The fact that patients can come into the office and, in as little as a few hours, have a beautiful brand new smile is a life-changing experience! I am so happy to see the joy on our patients' faces when they receive the gift of a new smile," states Dr. Robert Slauch, prosthodontist at Pi Dental Center.
- More People Are Candidates For Dental Implants –
Bone quality is an important variable when considering dental implant treatment. People who have had dentures for a long time can have substantial bone loss. Some medical conditions can also cause dental bone loss. In the past, patients with extreme bone loss were not considered candidates for dental implants. The No Bone Solution™ allows patients with extreme bone loss to be successfully treated using dental implants. This protocol combines pre-planning of implant placement, computer guided dental implant surgery, and precision screw retained fixed prosthodontic rehabilitation.
- Improved Long-Term Treatment Outcomes With A Consistently High Implant Success Rate –
At Pi Dental Center, we track and record every dental implant that we place. This allows us to gain important insight and continually improve. With 31 years of dental implant treatment experience and ongoing dental implant research, Pi Dental Center’s rate of success is 98%. To date, we have tracked 23,207 implants that we have placed, and even more that we have restored.
- Affordable Options For Dental Implant Treatment –
People often ask, "How much is a whole mouth of dental implants?" or "How much for All On 4 dental implants?". The All-On-4® dental implant procedure uses four implants to support permanent teeth. It is both reliable and cost effective, providing both comfort and confidence that improve the patient’s quality of life. This economical treatment option is fully customized for exceptional esthetics.
- Better Prostheses And More Prosthesis Options –
Today dental prosthetics are totally customized. For the patient’s convenience, a custom temporary prosthesis is made before the patient’s dental implant placement appointment.
Pi Dental Center has two on-site laboratories for provisional and final prosthetics. Our on-site labs improve communications between the dentist, lab technician and patient. Our technicians frequently come into the operatory to take a tooth shade or discuss the prosthesis with the dentist and clinical team as well as the patient.
Today, dental materials are stronger and more versatile. Color matching can be precise. Digital technology improves accuracy of fit.
With advances in dental technology, implant treatment has become much more predictable. Dental treatment that was not possible in the past is now a reality.
