Why Do You Need Dental Implants?

Dental implants are restorative dental devices dentists use to replace missing teeth. They consist of three parts, metal implants, abutments and prosthetic teeth. However, here at PivoSmiles we also offer non-metal implants for patients allergic to implants or with thinning gums. Contact us today and let our experienced team help you discover the transformative benefits of dental implants firsthand.

Dental restoration

At PivoSmiles we offer titanium, zirconia and metal-free dental implant restorations for patients with missing teeth. Full arch implants are ideal for patients missing every tooth in either or both jaws. Our implant-supported bridges replace consecutive missing teeth on the upper or lower jaw.


Maintaining your dental implants is imperative to getting the most out of them. Our professional implant maintenance service caters to all types of implants, including all-on-4 and full-arch implants. This involves x-rays and tests to determine the implants’ condition, occlusion assessments, dental cleaning and much more.

Single-Tooth Implant

We also offer single-tooth implants for individual missing teeth in our jaw. We take care to ensure the prosthetic tooth blends seamlessly with the rest. Our qualified dentists or anesthesiologists will ensure a painless procedure and provide tips for smooth and quick healing.

What to Expect When Getting Dental Implants?

Assessment and Treatment Planning

The first step in the dental implant process is a dental assessment that checks your overall dental health and the condition of your teeth to determine your suitability for implants. The dentist will also take x-rays and photographs of your teeth and gums, and use this information to create your treatment plan.

Implant Placement

After you get approval from the dentist, the dentist will start the procedure by injecting a local anesthetic into the gums to numb the region. They’ll then make an incision on the gums, exposing the bone underneath. Once exposed, the dentist will drill a hole into the jaw bone before placing a titanium or zirconia post inside and suturing the gum tissue.


Osseointegration describes the process by which the jaw bone fuses with the dental implant to become one. The dentist will give you three to six months for the implant to osseointegrate. The process is aided by tiny holes on the surface of the implant that the bone grows into. Only after osseointegration does the dentist proceed with the treatment.

Abutment and Prosthetic Teeth Placement

After osseointegration, the dentist will schedule an appointment to place the abutments and prosthetic teeth. They’ll first open up the sutures before carefully attaching the abutment to the implant. Once secure, we compare your tooth’s color to a color chart and create prosthetic teeth that match yours, and attach it to the abutment. After a few adjustments, the dentist will send you home with guidelines for maintaining your implants.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

Can You Remove Dental Implants?

No, you can’t remove dental implants since the dentist embeds them deep into your jawbone. These are permanent restorations that are meant to replace your natural teeth. If you want removable prosthetics, you can settle for dentures---they contain a gum base with prosthetic teeth that rests on your gums.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. They are artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting a variety of restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures, depending on the number of teeth that are being replaced. Dental implants are made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium, which are well-tolerated by the body.

Why should I consider dental implants?

Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to – confidently eating, smiling, laughing, talking, and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your teeth. They are incredibly durable and, with proper care, can last a lifetime. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants are firmly anchored in your jawbone, providing a stable and secure foundation for your replacement teeth.

How is the procedure for dental implants done at PivoSmiles?

At PivoSmiles, we ensure that each patient receives a treatment plan tailored to their specific needs. The dental implant procedure involves several stages, including an initial consultation, the placement of the titanium implant, a healing period, and the placement of the crown. Throughout the process, Dr. Pivo and his team will work closely with you to ensure your comfort and satisfaction. We use state-of-the-art technology and techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Is the procedure for dental implants painful?

Most patients find that the discomfort associated with dental implant surgery is less than that of a tooth extraction. Local anesthesia is used during the procedure to minimize any discomfort. After the surgery, typical side effects may include minor swelling, bruising, pain, or discomfort, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. At PivoSmiles, we prioritize patient comfort and will work with you to ensure that you have a positive experience throughout the dental implant process.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Most people who are in good general health and have sufficient jawbone density are good candidates for dental implants. However, certain medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or a weakened immune system, may affect your eligibility. Smoking can also impact the success of dental implants. Dr. Pivo will conduct a thorough evaluation, including a review of your medical history and a detailed examination of your mouth, to determine if dental implants are the right choice for you.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Caring for your dental implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and regular dental check-ups are essential for maintaining the health of your implants and surrounding gum tissue. It's also important to avoid habits that can damage your implants, such as chewing on hard objects or grinding your teeth. With proper care, your dental implants can last a lifetime, providing you with a beautiful, functional smile.
