Implant Post

Options for Any Number of Missing Teeth

Dental implants are the most versatile tooth replacement solution available today, able to replace one, several, or all unsalvageable or missing teeth. They’re made up of three parts: the implant post that is surgically placed into the jawbone, the permanent restoration, and the connecting abutment. Dental implant restorations include a single dental crown, a dental bridge, and removable or fixed full arch solutions, including implant supported overdentures, fixed hybrid prostheses, and the Conus Concept full mouth dental implants.

Designed for permanent support and strength, dental implants require meticulous surgical planning and the expertise of a trained surgeon to be placed in locations and angles in the jaw that provide the greatest functional and aesthetic outcomes. Our oral surgeons are trained and experienced in the latest minimally invasive techniques and full anesthesia options to ensure your comfort. They also utilize state-of-the-art surgical technology, including CBCT scans and guided surgery from X-Nav Technologies to complete your treatment at the highest standard of precision and personalization. In most cases, we can provide a new tooth or set of teeth the day of your dental implant placement so you can begin receiving the lasting benefits immediately!

Providing New Smiles in One Day

Our oral surgeons also provide teeth-in-a-day solutions to restore your smile in just one day. This can involve extraction with immediate dental implant placement, implant surgery and immediate loading of a restoration, or a combination of these procedures. By carefully planning out every surgery and fully customizing each surgical guide to the unique anatomy of each patient, we can guarantee your dental implants are placed at the precise location and angle in your jaw to fully support immediate loading of a temporary restoration.

We also use the sophisticated Osstell® ISQ machine to measure the primary stability of the dental implants directly after being placed. Significantly more accurate and consistent than taking x-rays, this machine assists us in determining if it’s safe to immediately attach your tooth or set of teeth. Due to our surgical expertise and use of these advanced technologies, our oral surgeons can consistently place dental implants in areas of the jawbone that achieve high ISQ values, allowing you to experience the benefits of dental implants the day of your surgery.

An Affordable Solution for Every Situation

Our oral surgeons leverage some of implant dentistry’s most advanced technologies and use fully guided techniques through X-Nav Technologies to ensure the most precise placement of your dental implants and restoration for long-term function and aesthetics. We partner with CareCredit®, LendingClub, and Proceed Finance, three dental financing companies that make it simple and fast to secure financing and low monthly payment options that fit your budget. Standing behind our work, we also provide additional peace of mind through our own warranty that covers any complications or repairs for up to one year after your surgery. Dental implants certainly are an investment, but by completing your treatment at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Carbondale, you’ll receive care from leaders in implant dentistry and a team focused on providing an amazing, high-quality experience.

A solution as permanent and attractive as dental implants is truly a life-changing experience for our patients. Therefore, it should always be approached as a lifetime investment versus an expense that drives you to pick the cheapest option. Unfortunately, many doctors offer enticing deals or “cheap” treatment options that can lead to dangerous problems and costly repairs later. We’re transparent about the fees associated with your treatment and work closely with your restorative dentist to provide care at competitive rates, while remaining at the highest level of quality. We also only choose materials scientifically proven to look beautiful and function for decades, even under the pressure of everyday biting and chewing.
