Why Choose Implants
over Traditional Restorations?
HealthDental implants act as artificial tooth roots, stimulating the jawbone. This prevents the bone recession that follows tooth loss, and keeps your remaining natural teeth intact and healthy.
ComfortWhile traditional dentures can cause pain and discomfort as they shift and slip out of place, implant-supported restorations feel as comfortable as your natural teeth.
LongevityBy maintaining excellent dental health, titanium implants can last 40 years or longer. Although a replacement tooth will eventually wear out, implants will likely continue to provide important benefits for the rest of your life.
How do I know If I qualify for dental implants?
Consultation And Planning Our Technology-Assisted Implant Treatment
During your consultation, Dr. Dowell will thoroughly evaluate your medical history and examine the health and condition of your teeth. Our practice serving Minerva, Carrollton, and Dover is equipped with an intraoral camera and cone-beam computed tomography (CT) scanner, allowing us to capture images of teeth, the jawbone, and other tissues. With these high-resolution images of your teeth and jaw, we can identify any issues that may preclude you from treatment, and determine if certain dental procedures can restore your candidacy.
The cone beam scanner also allows us to virtually plan your procedure and create custom surgical guides. A surgical guide is a tool that increases the accuracy of the procedure by guiding Dr. Dowell's movements while he places your implants. We craft our surgical guides in-house with our own 3D printer. Our fully digital practice ensures patients receive the highest quality treatment and consistently successful results.

A Closer Look At The Procedure
Are you hesitant about undergoing surgery?
Relax with Sedation
Many patients are apprehensive about the surgical portion of treatment. However, you can rest assured that the team at Dowell Dental Group will help you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your appointment. While we always provide a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area before your implant surgery, we also offer sedation dentistry. If you are especially anxious or have a condition such as arthritis that makes sitting for long periods uncomfortable, Dr. Dowell may recommend oral conscious sedation. Oral conscious sedation will place you in a calm state of near-sleep, and you probably won't remember the treatment afterward. We care about your comfort, so don't hesitate to let us know if you need sedation or other accommodations when you visit our offices in Minerva, Carrollton, and Dover.
