What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Types of Implants

  • Endosteal (in the bone): This is the most commonly used type of implant. The various types include screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
  • Subperiosteal (on the bone): These are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework’s posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.

Shrewsbury, Claywell & Oliver Dentistry has experience in a wide range of dental implants and procedures. The diagnostic process for dental implants will always start with a 3D CT Scan imaging of the jaw. Our iCAT 3-D Dental Imaging System (3D x-ray), provides our doctors with state-of-the-art technology for better planning and precision when placing implants, creating visual simulations and much more.

We offer a wide range of dental implant options, including immediate dental implants, mini-dental implants, and metal free dental implants. Also, with multiple dental implant procedures, we have routinely utilized virtual surgery planning to ensure the accuracy of placement.

We offer a five year replacement warranty on dental implants and all fixed restorations, including dental veneers, dental crowns, and dental bridges. (The only requirement is to maintain your regular cleanings and exams).
