Your Dental Implant Experts
Serving Lafayette and West Lafayette
Our primary goal at Guido Family Dentistry is to save teeth and keep your natural smile for a lifetime. However, there are times when this is not possible despite the many advances in dental care. This leaves many patients with lower confidence and self-esteem as well as diminished chewing function. The goods news is you still have options to help you maintain the structure and appearance of your original smile. For many years, patients were limited to either a bridge or form of dentures, but now an Affordable and Long-Term option is available through dental implants!
Many patients choose to use dental implants to replace their missing teeth as they are Specifically Designed to fit and Enhance your Smile. They also offer greater long-term benefits and a safer investment in your smile. Dental implants are made up of titanium and other biocompatible materials that create a very stable artifical root and tooth structure.
Once Dr. Guido Walker sees the implant fully healed, it is time to permanently restore your implant! An abutment and crown are designed in our office and created at one of our local dental laboratories. The crown is customized to fit your own personal size, shape, color and fit in order to make your smile perfect! After 2-3 weeks, the final abutment and crown will be placed and you will finally be able to show off your new smile!
After surgical placement, your implant will require a period of time to heal as it becomes integrated into your jawbone. The strength of your implant comes from this integration as your bone grows around the implant and holds it firmly in place. While this process can take 2-3 months to fully heal, the added strength when the process is complete in Stage 3 is worth the wait!
Your first appointment will involve an in-depth evaluation with Dr. Guido Walker, including an oral evaluation, 3D X-ray, and consultation, in order to provide you with your most effective treatment plan. You will have discussions with Dr. Guido Walker and one of our treatment coordinators to establish a timeline, estimated costs, and scheduling appointments. The next step in establishing your implant is surgical placement into your jawbone.
