Traditional Implants

Dr. John Potter is a highly-skilled expert in the specialized procedure of placing dental implants. Dental implants are among the most popular permanent solutions for tooth replacement. With a success rate of 98%, they offer a natural-looking permanent replacement for teeth that is superb – safe, predictable, and esthetically pleasing. Implants are miracles of modern design and engineering, in which either titanium or zirconium are implanted directly into your jawbone, integrating with the bone to form a permanent root. For each implant, a new tooth is custom-made from porcelain to match your surrounding teeth and is then attached to the new root, creating a life-like restoration in shape, design, color and comfort.
Implant dentistry offers many advantages to patients including:

  • Improved Confidence– Dental implants look and feel like real teeth. We all know that when you look better, you feel better. Patients love hearing compliments about their new smile, making them more confident.
  • Improved Oral Health– Nearby teeth do not need to be altered or reduced to accommodate for a dental implant. This means that more of your teeth are left intact, improving your oral health. Also, individual implants allow easy access between teeth for proper cleaning.
  • Durability– Implants for teeth are exceptionally durable, and with proper care, can last patients a lifetime.
  • Improved Function– Speaking and eating are greatly improved by dental implants. The implants mimic a natural tooth better than any other option in dentistry and the strength of an implant is often stronger than a natural tooth.

Because we believe that our patients deserve only the latest in today’s diagnostic advancements, Dr. Potter’s office uses a 3D CT scanner. A 3D model of the mouth is the optimal choice when planning tooth implants, but is also popular for other fields of dentistry. The 3D simulation allows Dr. Potter to rotate the imaged area into any position desired, provides cross-sections through bone matter, measures bone density and provides much more useful information. Cone beam technology allows for faster and more accurate diagnosis during implant placement.
