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.
Restoring Your Smile
With Dental Implants
Tooth Restorations Dental Implants Can Support
Implant-supported dental crowns can cover the top of your implant to replace a single tooth from the root to chewing surface.
If you need to replace one to three teeth, you may want to consider an implant-supported dental bridge.
Implant-supported dentures can benefit those who need to replace most or all of their teeth. They have many benefits compared to traditional dentures, including superior stability that allows you to chew, speak, and smile with absolute confidence.

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.
