Dental Implants

A missing tooth does more than create a gap in your smile — it can cause your teeth to shift, alter your facial structure, affect the way you speak, and hinder your ability to eat the foods you love. Dental implants can help restore your function and aesthetics to your smile and preserve your natural jaw structure. When properly maintained, dental implants can provide a permanent tooth replacement option.

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants consist of titanium posts/screws which replace tooth roots and provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth. These posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Through a process called osseointegration, the screw bonds with the surrounding bone structure, forming an anchor for a replacement tooth.

In order to qualify for this procedure, you must have sufficient bone structure to support the implant screw. The process may take up to one year to complete, as the screw must properly bond with the jaw bone.

Providing Guided Implant Surgery for Accuracy & Efficiency

Dr. William H. Turner II has practiced dentistry in Painter, VA, since 1987. Throughout the years, he has incorporated the best dental technology and techniques, including guided implant surgery, into his practice. Before adding this technique into his repertoire, Dr. Turner would insert all implants freehand.

How does guided implant surgery work?

Using our in-house CEREC® CAD system, we take a 3D image and model of your teeth. This allows us to examine your oral structures from every angle and develop an implant placement plan. This is then sent to an outside lab which fabricates the guide. This guide serves as a template for your particular implant placement.

What are the benefits of this procedure?

One of the biggest advantages to this procedure is it eliminates the guesswork of placing your implant and makes the overall process safer. Your custom guide allows us to safely drill into your jawbone and has stops built in to limit the depth of the drill and of the implant post.

In addition, it decreases the length of the surgery — certain implant placements can be completed in as little as 15 minutes — and reduces stress on our team. Because we know exactly where the implant will be placed, it creates a precision fit and more aesthetic result.
