Gaps in your smile left by missing teeth can compromise the health, comfort, and appearance of your smile.
Dental implants offer an unrivaled solution for tooth replacement. By replacing the entire tooth, implant-supported restorations restore the look, feel, and function of missing teeth.
So why should you consider dental implants from Elite Dental Care?
Dental implants are widely considered to be the finest option for replacing missing teeth. Implants are the only treatment that will actually replace the missing tooth's roots. Once the implants have been allowed to heal and integrate with your jaw bone, the restorations can provide a secure base for a permanent crown, bridge, or denture. At Elite Dental Care, we provide expert dental implant treatment from placement to restoration. Dr. Clint Buchanan has taken extensive courses in this treatment, and Dr. Mark Harper has completed master-level training. You can undergo your treatment at one of our three convenient offices in Jackson, Trenton, and Germantown, TN.
All candidates must have a minimum amount of healthy bone tissue to support the implants and their attached restorations. Dr. Buchanan or Dr. Harper will carefully examine your jaw using x-rays and 3-D cone beam scans. If you have suffered significant bone recession, your doctor may recommend a bone graft or sinus lift to improve the structure to support your implants.
Traditional dental implants require at least two different surgeries, separated by four to six months of healing time: one to place the implants and one to attach the abutments. Your entire treatment plan will typically be completed over the course of several months with breaks in between to allow for proper healing. Because each patient heals differently, it could take longer.
Phases of traditional implant treatment often include:
Before your implant surgery, your doctor will use a local anesthetic to numb your gums and jawbone. We can also provide oral conscious sedation to help you relax throughout the procedure. To begin, your dentist will create tiny incisions in your gums, allowing access to the underlying bone. After placing the implants in your jaw, he will close up the incisions with small, dissolvable sutures.
At Elite Dental Care, we offer personalized care for your comprehensive dental implant treatment.
At Elite Dental Care, we offer personalized care for your comprehensive dental implant treatment. To meet your individual needs, we offer several implant options.

No matter what type of implants you receive, they will offer numerous benefits. The most apparent advantage is that implant-supported restorations are incredibly secure. Because the implants will replace your dental roots, your new teeth will never slip or move out of place. You can eat all of your favorite foods, smile freely, and speak with confidence.
In addition, implant-supported restorations do not require metal clips or plastic bases, and will look more natural than other, removable restorations. Finally, like a tooth's roots, implants send regenerative signals to your jawbone, which can prevent bone recession, an aged appearance, and further tooth loss.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants can improve your oral health as well as the appearance of your smile. Learn more about our comprehensive implant treatment options by contacting our office online or calling one of our three convenient locations to schedule an appointment.
