Whether you have one tooth missing, several or a complete set, the team at Expertise Dental is passionate about restoring not only the teeth of our patients, but their self-confidence too!
If you are embarrassed about a missing single tooth or multiple missing teeth, or if you have dentures and feel uncomfortable when chewing, or maybe you avoid certain foods in case your dentures slip or pop out, then why not consider dental implants.
Dental implants are basically artificial roots placed into your mouth that support fixed or removable tooth replacements. They are individually designed to look and feel like your natural teeth. In addition, dental implants help stop bone loss by replacing the lost roots which helps save the rest of your teeth too!
When you lose teeth, the bone in your jaw that supported them starts to shrink. The sockets recede, and over time the bone gets smaller and smaller. For many people, this results in a sunken-faced look that could easily have been avoided.
Not only does the bone shrink, but as that process continues, it can result in the shifting of your teeth, leading to a domino effect of tooth loss. While dental restorations like bridges can slow the shifting of teeth, they don’t prevent bone loss and eventually can still result in the same troubles.
Dental implants are able to stop bone loss by replacing the lost roots of your teeth. This means that bone won’t shrink, and you’ll be saving the rest of your teeth as well! By providing a lasting, positive result, dental implants can improve your self-esteem and confidence in your smile and your oral health.
We use the latest digital tools to plan and place implants at Expertise Dental. With 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), we take a three dimensional image of the surgical site, determine the quality of bone in the area, and plan the perfect placement for your dental implant.

The office is state-of-the-art. The staff are kind, professional and knowledgeable. Dr. Seay does exemplary work. The office also works to make sure you are calm and comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Seay for dental care and especially restorative and cosmetic dental work!
With so many issues and concerns with my teeth (had braces for six years, many other appliances, and missing my two lateral teeth), I knew I needed someone top notch! Someone that not only knew what they were doing but also made me feel comfortable. They have been nothing but kind and listened to my every concern! I have recommended them many times.
Amanda and her team turned what I once believed was a nightmare experience (going to the dentist) into a pleasant (wow, did I just say that) one. They truly know how to eliminate every possible discomfort. In addition their friendly and outgoing personalities make you forget why you are there. Above and beyond, they are real experts and artisans at their craft.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that are about the size of the roots of your natural teeth. The dental implant is placed in your jaw and fills the role of your missing root. Implants are threaded on the inside and outside, so once your implant is placed, we are able to finish it with a variety of dental restorations.
Dental implants act a lot like any other permanent surgical material – they integrate with your bone to create an incredibly strong and permanent bond. Just like screws used in other surgeries, titanium is the material of choice due to its excellent ability to integrate with bone.
Dental implants are a good option for anyone in good health. In order to place the implant, you must have healthy gums and enough bone below the implant to support it. If either of these are an issue for you, there is a way to treat these conditions first before placing an implant.
Many do not experience any pain at all throughout the process. Most people are able to work the next day after each step in the treatment process.
One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is that, in most cases, they prevent future pain and complications. Dental implants are a permanent solution that allow you to turn back the clock on your teeth. They’re just like having your real, healthy teeth back.
We cannot provide a quote for implants online. It’s too difficult to give a quote for all situations, which is why we offer a free consultation. Come in for a no-pressure appointment with the dental implant dentist so you can determine all your options, as well as learn about our payment plans. You might be surprised at just how affordable the price of dental implants are with our finance options.
Dental Implants are a great option for anyone and they can last for many years with good oral hygiene and care. In order to place an implant, you will require healthy gums and have enough bone to support the implant. If you would like a Complimentary Consultation we can advise you further about treatment options.
If you have a few missing teeth, whether this is from an accident or illness or poor oral care, then don’t worry we can fix these! Multiple dental implants can be placed with a permanent fixed bridge which enables you to eat and chew whatever you like. The replacements will look realistic, natural and function well.
These offer a greater support to your existing dentures using a series of implants with a bar or clasp system to snap your dentures onto. You can still remove them at night but they will give you a higher level of stability during the day.
We would like to invite you to a Complimentary Consultation. Please enter your details in to the form and a member of our friendly team will reach out to you to reserve your Consultation.
