Dental implants are a safe, permanent alternative to dentures and bridges. Dental implants don't just replace the visible part of the tooth, but the tooth root as well, providing the necessary structural support to the mouth to avoid loss of bone mass in the jaw.
When you lose a tooth, you aren't just left with a visible gap in your smile, but you're left with a gap in your jawbone as well. The loss of a tooth frequently results in the dissolving and deterioration of the bone. This can cause drastic changes to your appearance and dental health, as the underlying bone structure of your jaw deteriorates.
By replacing not just the visible portion of the tooth, but the root as well, the process of osseointegration is prevented, and the jaw remains intact and healthy.
Dr. Williams is one of only a handful of implant dentists who is able to take a 3 dimensional radiograph, also known as a CAT scan or iCAT. This allows him to see the jaw in all three dimensions…impossible with other x-ray systems. This also allows for the precise placement of dental implants without invasive, exploratory surgery.
Minimally invasive implants
Implant dentist Dr. Williams specializes in a technique for minimally invasive dental implants, which allows him to replace missing teeth without the need for large incisions, stitches, or the extended healing time required with more invasive implant techniques.
