Dental Implants

Why Dental Implants Are the Top Choice


Though there are many restorative options to choose from, patients at Iroquois Dentistry who choose implants can benefit from several significant advantages, including:

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. 

Improve the Health, Look, and Function of Your Smile


Missing teeth can lead to other, more serious oral health issues like bone atrophy or temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Our dentists can replace your missing tooth or teeth with a high-quality titanium implant to prevent future health issues and restore your confident smile.

Always a pleasant experience! All of the staff is super friendly and helpful. I’ve been going there for 6 years now and I HIGHLY recommend this practice.
Susan Sharbel 2022
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'.

Get Your Restorations

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.

The Iroquois Dentistry team looks forward to welcoming you.

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:

Good Bone Health

In order to receive dental implants, it is essential that you have a healthy jawbone. Strong bone tissue will support the titanium posts for long-term results. If you have suffered significant jawbone atrophy, this may affect your candidacy for treatment. To improve your candidacy, you may be able to undergo a bone graft or sinus lift. This allows our dentists to create a solid base for implant treatment.


Smoking has a negative effect on your body's immune system and can inhibit your ability to heal properly following implant surgery. It can also increase the risk of experiencing implant failure. Smokers who are considering restoring a missing tooth or teeth with implants need to quit several months in advance of surgery. Those who are willing to quit need to do so permanently to avoid any complications.

Free of Periodontal Disease

If you have gum disease, you will need to undergo professional periodontal treatment before beginning the implant process. Healthy gum tissue is essential to provide a strong foundation for the successful placement of implants.

Generally Healthy

Health conditions such as diabetes can increase the risks of surgery and inhibit healing and recovery. Fortunately, healthy patients who have their diabetes under control can expect success rates equal to those without diabetes.

Dental Implants Are a Superior Solution


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


Anyone missing teeth is a good candidate for this high-quality dental treatment.



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.



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?


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 Use Top-Tier Materials


Our dentists use only top-tier materials for our dental implants to create results that are long-lasting and beautiful.

Nobel Implants

We rely on Nobel implants that have a proven track record of success. Nobel was an early provider of implants and their long-standing reputation speaks to the quality of their work. With good oral hygiene habits, your Nobel implants can last a lifetime.

Latest Equipment

We use state-of-the-art technology to create a precise 3D impression of your mouth and a custom surgical guide. This technology takes the guesswork out of implant treatment and allows us to accurately place the titanium posts.

Precision Placement

Our cutting-edge procedures ensure predictable outcomes by placing your implant in the most advantageous position. Our precision extends to the creation of your restoration to ensure it is functional, natural-looking, and long-lasting.

Customized and Precise Implant Placement


Guided implant surgery is an improved form of dental implant surgery that allows our dentists to create a customized surgical strategy. This cutting-edge technique allows our dentists to: 

Are You Worried About Surgery?


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:

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide allows you to be relaxed and comfortable during surgery while still being aware of your surroundings.

Oral Conscious Sedation

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

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:

original (4)

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?


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)
