Dental Implants. Recreating Mother Nature.
At Moore Dentistry, we have invested in 3D Cone Beam Teachnology and CEREC technology. This means that Dr. Moore can anticipate any complications, choose the best possible specifications of implant, and design your new tooth BEFORE the process even starts. Using a computer generated scan of your jaw Dr. Moore can "virtually" place the implant and also place the final crown on that implant. Moore Dentistry is absolutely committed to the latest in the technique and technology of dental implants. Whether its one implant or many implants, we can help you through this process...

Dental Implants- more information...
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances. Dental implants are artificial roots (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by Dr. Moore The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and enhance or restore a patient’s smile! Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years.
Reasons for dental implants:
Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
Restore a patient’s confident smile.
Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
Restore or enhance facial tissues.
Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.
What does getting dental implants involve?
The process of getting implants requires a number of visits and may require several months.
X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself onto the bone for about 2 months.
After several weeks of healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the "abutment" portion of the implant. After the healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.
You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
