Implant Treatment that Reduces Pain
Denise DeForest needed dental implants for a long time, but hadn’t been able pull the trigger. Among other things, she was afraid of the pain she had imagined she’d experience during and after her implant surgery. “I used to take valium when I would visit my general dentist,” she later told our staff. Unfortunately, her oral health continued to worsen, and eventually, she had no choice but to move forward. Her search led her to The Dental Implant Place, and she was intrigued by our minimally invasive approach, which we’ve refined over a decade to minimize pain and accelerate healing. Despite knowing the details, she was still shocked by the effect our approach had on her surgery a month later.
“The thought of going to the dentist at all caused me such anxiety,” she told us enthusiastically during a follow-up visit, “but with Dr. Brown, I didn’t feel any pain at all!”
Committed to Changing the Cliché
We constantly hear stories like Denise’s at The Dental Implant Place. Too often, people avoid dental implants (and the radical improvements they provide to their quality of life) because of fear of surgical pain. It’s even more tragic when patients overcome that fear, only to have them validated by a dentist who uses painful, outdated surgical procedures that cause unnecessary surgical trauma. We’re here to change what dental implant placement means to patients, with a minimally invasive approach that surpasses their expectations.
Gentler, More Advanced Treatment Processes
When placing dental implants, many dentists and oral surgeons use a technique known as flaps. Creating flaps means cutting and peeling back a small section of a patient’s gums, and then drilling the dental implant into the jawbone. It’s often painful, unnecessary, and traumatic, and it’s much more difficult to predict surgical success because of the longer healing time. Our approach is radically different. Dr. Brown makes a tiny pinhole in the gums, then gently rotates the implant into place. That’s it. He can accomplish this thanks to his extensive, renowned skill at advanced implant placement, as well as our highly advanced surgical planning, guidance, and imaging technologies.
During your free consultation, you’ll learn that we make the implant fit the bone, rather than making the bone fit the implant. We offer many different types of dental implants, including single-piece titanium alloy posts instead of posts with multiple components. We may use wide models or slim, mini implant models, depending on your oral health, the thickness of your jawbone, the shape of your bite and face, and more. If necessary, we can even incorporate multiple types of posts to conservatively rebuild the same smile.
A Happier Ending
All of this came to bear when we restored Denise’s smile. During and after her surgery, she was surprised by the lack of any pain. However, she was just as surprised by the level of care she received leading up to her implant placement surgery. Specifically, she couldn’t believe the level of detail we provided during the process, and the degree to which we invited her to be involved.
“They walked me through everything the whole way. They would let me know ahead of every appointment what we would be doing and how long it would take. Dr. Brown took me back [to the lab] and showed me how they were digitally designing my teeth. I got to give feedback, and Jay (the Operations Manager) made live adjustments as I talked with him.”
We gave Denise same-day teeth to wear after her extractions and bone grafts while se waited for her final restoration. When she received it, she was thrilled.
“I love my teeth! The end results were amazing. My favorite thing is the comments I get from people who know me. They always talk about the way I look now. They’re just so shocked!”
