What to Expect During the Placement Procedure
To better serve our patients, we provide both placement and restoration treatments at our office. We are able to extract unhealthy teeth and place your new titanium posts on the same day. Our dentist recommended that your implants heal for up to six months before restorations are affixed; in the meantime, you will be provided with a temporary prosthetic that allows you to function normally.
Ideal candidates for dental implant placement possess adequate bone density and a smile free of gum disease. If tooth loss has already weakened your jawbone by accelerating the process known as resorption, we perform preparatory procedures that will help you become a viable candidate for implants; these procedures include bone grafting, sinus lifts, and ridge augmentation.
Once your implants have healed, you will be ready for a restored smile. Dr. Williams uses zirconia and porcelain-fused-to-metal, and can further adjust the shade of these already natural-looking restoration materials to match the rest of your smile. We use intraoral photos and different light source guides, working with trusted outside labs to help patients gain the best aesthetic results.
Woodlawn Dental offers the following restoration options at our Birmingham office:
- Single tooth replacements with crowns
- Implant-supported bridges
Dr. Williams also works with hybrid and All-on-4® dentures, which are ideal for patients who have already experienced resorption in their jawbones. He regularly collaborates with other periodontists in order ensure the best results for his patients, utilizing special diagnostic technology, such as a CT scanner, when necessary.
