Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Implants can help preserve facial structure and appearance, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! With dental implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
What is involved in placing implants?
After careful planning with your team of doctors using our latest 3D technology, we determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. If your bone is not ideal, many times we can reshape and add bone to allow you to be a candidate for the dental implant.
We then use our latest techniques and planning software to guide your implants into proper placement. After the gums have had several weeks to heal, the next step is begun. The artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the implant.
Implant surgery can be done in a dental office. A local or general anesthetic may be used. Our dental team will give you instructions on diet and oral hygiene. Future maintenance visits will also help to assure years of success. At White Wolf Dental, we provide complimentary adjustments for life on all of our implant dentures.
What About the Cost?
Technology is not only helping making our lives easier, it’s helping reduce the cost of procedures as well. With the advent of newer machines that produce higher quality implants, new stronger materials, and better manufacturing, we can offer significant savings to our patients on implants and the prostheses that attach to them. We also offer bundled fees for our larger cases and Care Credit financing is available for most procedures. Finally, with our Quality Dental Plan membership program, members can save 20% on implants and prostheses.
It all adds up to a new smile that’s beautiful, functional, and affordable!
Complete Implant Dentures
Having a smile you can be proud of is more than a cosmetic change for some patients. Hiding your smile because you are ashamed, not having a healthy diet because you can’t chew food properly, or not going out to dinner with family or friends are difficulties many people suffer with, leading to a diminished quality of life.
People that have been battling for many years with aggressive gum disease, cavities or broken teeth may feel there is little hope. Unfortunately people in these situations fear that they have to resort to conventional dentures as their parents did or do not want conventional dentures as they know of friends or family member that struggle with them. This is why we offer a solution for our patients that is non-removeable, even with your temporary set of teeth.
New Teeth in just One Day!
Here at White Wolf Dental, we pride ourselves in producing high quality dentistry and take extra steps to assure you have the outcome you deserve. Once supporting implants are placed it takes time for tissues to heal enough for permanent implant-supported dentures to be fitted. During that healing period, our patients are fitted with a temporary implant denture. Our temporary implant dentures are made with metal reinforcements to reduce the risk of fractures and special teeth with pins to prevent teeth from coming off.
Many dental practices make their final prosthesis from plastic teeth with acrylic over a metal bar. We do not offer that option but rather a new product that was developed right here in our office. Our final prosthesis has ceramic-like strength and the aesthetics of porcelain, but at the same fee we charged in the past for the acrylic over metal option.

Partial Tooth Replacement
Why are dental implants the best option for replacing missing teeth?
Every way you look at it, dental implants are a better solution to the problem of missing teeth. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Contact us today to see if implants are right for you.
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.
Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!
Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They are secure and offer freedom from the irksome clicks and wobbles of dentures. They’ll allow you to say goodbye to worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.
