Why Dental Implants Are the Top Choice
FOR TOOTH REPLACEMENT
Titanium implants are extremely durable. The restoration placed on your implant could last ten years or more with proper maintenance, but with the same appropriate hygiene and routine dental visits, dental implants will typically last the rest of your life.
Because each titanium post functions as a substitute for the roots of a missing tooth, your restoration will never slip out of place. Implants allow you to eat all of your favorite foods without any restrictions, as well as speak and smile with confidence.
The restoration supported by your implants will look and function just like natural teeth. At Iroquois Dentistry, our doctors use advanced medical-grade materials to craft your restoration. This allows us to provide the natural-looking appearance you deserve.
By replacing dental roots, implants will also perform the same function in your overall oral health. As you chew and speak, the posts will send regenerative signals to your jaw, triggering new bone growth to prevent bone recession and further tooth loss.
A missing tooth or teeth can have a significant impact on the appearance of your smile, the function of your bite, and your self-confidence.
Dental implants provide a stable base for advanced restorations so that you can bring form, function, and health back to your smile.
Our team at Iroquois Dentistry in Nashville, TN, can revitalize your smile with dental implants.

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.
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.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?
Implants are surgically placed into the jaw to replace the roots of missing teeth. These small, titanium posts can support all types of dental restorations from crowns to dentures. The right implant-supported prosthetic for you will depend on the degree of tooth loss you have experienced. If you only have one missing tooth, an implant-supported crown will be sufficient. An implant-supported bridge or denture is required if you need to replace multiple teeth or even a full dental arch. In order to qualify for dental implants, you must meet certain criteria, including:

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.

WE ARE TRAINED AND LICENSED IN SEDATION DENTISTRY
Modern-day dentistry and the use of state-of-the-art technology lets patients receive treatment for missing teeth with little to no discomfort. Our dentists use precise surgical guides that reduce the impact on the jawbone and surrounding tissue. This leads to less pain and quicker recovery times.
We understand any surgery can be concerning, so our Nashville practice offers three forms of sedation dentistry tailored to your needs:
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide allows you to be relaxed and comfortable during surgery while still being aware of your surroundings.
Oral sedation is given through prescribed medication that you will take before arriving at our office. You should be completely relaxed by your arrival.
IV sedation is the strongest form of sedation dentistry. Many patients who choose IV sedation are so relaxed during treatment they fall asleep.

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.
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)
