Get Your Restorations In a Single Visit

/

Our practice uses CEREC® technology and years of experience to craft natural-looking restorations conveniently, quickly, and with the utmost precision. Our Nashville dentists can oversee your entire dental implant treatment in one location to ensure the highest level of care possible. 

Same-Day Restorations with CEREC

Once you have healed following implant surgery, we will use our CEREC system to take impressions of your gums and natural teeth. These highly detailed scans allow us to design a restoration that will have a near-perfect fit and an incredibly natural-looking appearance. Your crown, bridge, or denture will then connect directly to the implants using the abutments or specialized dental cement. If you are receiving an implant-supported crown or bridge, we may be able to conveniently create your restoration in our office in a single appointment.

Precision Tools & Techniques ...  Won This Patient Over

"I've had both an implant through Iroquois and two minor procedures.  The absolute care and detail are outstanding ... As soon as KB started, I knew it would look completely different with him because of the precision tools/techniques he was using.  He didn't settle for 'eh, it'll work'." Sheri Traxler

If You Are Missing a Tooth, You Are Not Alone

Dental Implants Are a Superior Solution Dr. Jody Glover Explains the Dental Implant Process

Dental implants are a long-lasting tooth replacement option with many benefits. Our doctors make the dental implant process comfortable, and patients often feel little discomfort following the procedure. Our experienced dentists have undergone extra training to provide full dental implant treatment. From surgery to restoration placement, our dentists are there for you every step of the way. At Iroquois Dentistry, we consider anyone with missing teeth a good candidate for implants.

The Dental Implant Process What To Expect During Treatment

Our Nashville dentists can perform every step of treatment and restore the health, look, and function of your smile.
Anyone missing teeth is a good candidate for this high-quality dental treatment.
Anyone missing teeth is a good candidate for this high-quality dental treatment.

Consultation

You will first meet with one of our dentists to review your oral health needs and goals. They will create a customized treatment plan to restore your smile.

Implant Surgery

Your titanium implants are precisely placed in the jawbone using surgical guides during a minor outpatient surgery at our Nashville, TN, office. Sedation is available to ensure your comfort.

Osseointegration

Over the next four to six months, the titanium posts will fuse with your bone during a process called osseointegration. Eventually, the dental implants will act like the roots of the missing tooth and become a permanent part of your jaw. You will be fitted with temporary fixed teeth while your jawbone heals.

Abutment Placement

After this first healing period, your doctor will place an abutment on the implant or implants. Abutments are small connector pieces that are used to attach a restoration such as a dental crown. A second recovery period will be needed so your gums can heal around the abutments.

Restoration Attachment

Once you have fully healed from the abutment placement (about two weeks later), we can attach your replacement tooth, bridge, or denture to your implants. Although dentures generally require a couple of weeks or more to craft off-site, we can often provide same-day crowns and bridges using our in-office CEREC milling machine.

Are Missing Teeth Impacting Your Life? Bring Back Your Confidence

Missing teeth affect more than just your smile. Tooth loss can make it hard to eat and can even alter how you talk. Over time, your face may look aged as bone deteriorates. Gaps caused by missing teeth let other teeth shift out of place, leading to additional dental problems.

Dental implants, especially when placed promptly by one of the skilled dentists at Iroquois Dentistry in Nashville, TN, can restore the simple pleasures you've been missing and avoid a cascade of oral health problems.  

The compassionate, top-rated dentists at our Nashville practice use proven methods and the latest, exacting technology to create beautiful smiles and bring lifelong benefits to your health.

Implants vs. Other Procedures

Dentures and traditional bridges are the standards for replacing lost teeth and they have been widely used for decades. Plus, the lower initial cost can make them appear attractive. However, when comparing implants to these traditional methods, it's important to also weigh lifetime costs and the impact of these older procedures on your oral health. Dental implants are:

Designed to Last a Lifetime

When cared for properly, dental implants can last 40 or more years. The restoration will need to be replaced periodically, but the implant itself can last a lifetime.

Proven to Be More Reliable

Studies have shown that bridges have a failure rate as high as 10 percent in just three years. On the other hand, dental implants have a long-term success rate of more than 95 percent.

More Convenient

Traditional dentures do not stop bone loss. As bone is lost, your dentures will need to be adjusted to avoid slipping and painful rubbing that can cause sores. Over time, the costs of relining and adjusting your denture will add up.

Better for Your Health

Without implants, dentures and bridges do not stimulate the bone in your jaw to grow and replenish itself. This deterioration can cause new oral health problems while also giving your face a sunken, aged look. Implants are the one and only treatment that can stop this bone loss that leads to additional dental problems.

Are You Concerned About Costs? How Our Nashville Practice Can Help

Implants are rarely covered by insurance so we understand our patients' concerns about costs. The initial cost of dental implants can appear intimidating. That's why we offer a bundle package that allows us to provide dental implants at a much more affordable rate. 

It also helps to understand that the process of placing dental implants is broken up into two stages: the surgical placement of the implants and placement of the restoration. Because the two steps are generally four months apart, the patient is able to spread out the cost over a period of time. 

We also offer flexible payment methods in addition to our bundle package that reduces costs. When insurance doesn't cover all your costs, the rest can usually be managed with:

  • CareCredit® financing
  • Our in-house low-interest and interest-free payment plans (some restrictions may apply)
