Dr. Chantry provides natural-looking, natural-feeling and well-functioning tooth replacement using dental implants.

Knowledgeable, Skilled Implant Dentistry

shutterstock_223292056A dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into your jaw and acts as an artificial tooth root. The implant serves as the foundation for a dental crown, a dental bridge or a denture to replace one or more missing teeth.

Dental implants are the strongest, most lifelike and longest-lasting of all tooth replacement options, and are the only form of tooth replacement that prevents the bone loss that occurs as a natural consequence of having missing teeth. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care, and they are considered the gold standard of tooth replacement today.

  • Implant-supported bridges

  • Implant-supported removable snap-in dentures

The denture will not slip, will have significantly increased chewing power and can be removed by the patient at any time for cleaning or other care.

  • Implants to stabilize an existing denture

The adjusted denture will function similarly to the snap-in new denture above and will have improved chewing power.

  • Implant-supported fixed-in dentures

    fixed implant dentureDr. Chantry can place a series of four or more implants to support a denture that is firmly fixed-in and will never have to come out of your mouth. Your new teeth will not slip or irritate your gums, and will provide 95 percent of the chewing power of natural teeth. There will be no false palate that inhibits your sense of taste, and you will be able to eat all the foods you need for proper nutrition.

Our Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implant placement is a precise procedure that requires detailed planning and execution. Dr. Chantry is meticulous at each step of the process to ensure stable and long-lasting results.

Thorough diagnostics

Panoramic X-rays are used as part of dental implant treatment planning.

Dr. Chantry starts with a comprehensive oral examination and panoramic X-rays that give a detailed overview of the entire mouth. The X-ray images are used to determine where the bone volume is best to support the implant, and if any bone grafting is needed to ensure adequate support.

When additional detail is needed, Dr. Chantry will arrange for you to receive a dental 3D CT scan using a mobile service that comes to our office. A CT scan provides 3D, 360-degree views of your teeth, jaw, sinuses and surrounding structures.

Detailed planning

Dr. Chantry precisely measures the location where the implant is to be placed so the correct type of implant post can be used. Using a special measuring device called a T-Scan®, he measures the forces of the bite so that he can make sure the new implant and implant-supported tooth result in a well-balanced and well-aligned bite. This information and the X-ray images are then used to meticulously plan out each step of the procedure.

Precise placement

When placing your implant, Dr. Chantry uses special measuring devices at the implant site to ensure that the implant is inserted in the exact position planned. He also obtains X-Ray verification that the implant is in the correct position before completing the procedure.

Gentle extractions

Expert bone grafting

Implants require a certain amount of bone support to be stable in the jaw and take the pressure put on them by the replacement teeth. If there is insufficient bone in your jaw for the implant to be stable, Dr. Chantry will place a bone graft which regenerates the needed bone to guarantee a strong foundation.

Keeping you comfortable

Dr. Chantry makes sure you are comfortable throughout your treatment. He uses a specially formulated anesthetic that makes injections very gentle. He also has oral sedation and an alpha wave drug-free relaxation system available if you need extra help with anxiety.

Follow-up visits

Dr. Chantry will check on the healing progress of your implants during routine follow-up visits. When the implants have fully healed, he will take impressions and fabricate your new replacement teeth.

Top-quality new teeth

Your new teeth will be made out of top-quality materials. They will look and feel completely natural and will align well with your bite. Whether you replace one tooth, several teeth or an entire arch, you will be able to smile again with complete confidence!

Who Are Candidates for Dental Implants?

Except for young persons whose jaw structures have not fully developed, there are no age limits on who can receive dental implants.

Due to major technical advances over the last twenty years, most people are now able to successfully receive dental implants. In the past, people who had lost too much bone in their jaw were not eligible for implants, as implants need a certain amount of bone support to be stable. Dr. Chantry can rebuild the bone needed to support an implant with modern bone grafting techniques.

Even patients with severe health problems that used to make implant treatment too risky are now often candidates for implants. This includes people who smoke heavily, have cardiovascular disease or who are diabetic. Dr. Chantry will closely liaise with your physician as needed in the event that you have any potentially compromising health conditions. This will ensure your safety and the success of any treatment that is performed.
