We know that visiting the dentist can cause anxiety. We offer various levels of sedation to keep you comfortable and pain free during your treatment. After treatment, most patients take over-the-counter pain medications for 1-2 days to manage any pain.

Your Steps to Dental Implants
Step 1: Free Consultation
Everything begins with a free consultation. A consultation at Smile Clinic includes a free full mouth digital scan and intraoral examination so we can identify the health of your teeth and your jaw bone. After this our office can tell you if dental implants are right for you or if we recommend another treatment. Our doctor will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
The consultation will typically will last around 30 minutes and we’ll be able to calculate the exact cost before you leave, as well as help with insurance and arranging financing.
Step 2: Implant Placement
At the following appointment, the implant surgery will take place. This can be done with local anesthesia or you can choose to be sedated. After this surgery, the implant(s) will need to heal for anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. We need you to let that implant rest so it can fuse to your bone through a process called osseointegration.
If your implant is in the esthetic zone (teeth that are seen when you smile) then you may receive a temporary partial denture so you can speak and smile confidently during your healing process.
Our dental lab will use scans of your teeth and/or pre-designed models to design your new crown (tooth).
Step 3: Final Restored Tooth
After the implant has healed, you are ready to receive your final zirconia crown. This tooth won't stain or get cavities and will be strong enough to eat all your favorite foods with. It doesn't have to be removed and will feel so natural in your mouth that you may even forget which tooth was replaced!
