Teeth Implants for Missing Teeth
If you are missing one or more teeth, implant dentistry can transform the way you live. Custom-fit dental implants provide a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth that look and feel perfectly natural. Patients who have lost the ability to chew or speak without difficulty can regain confidence and full functionality with dental implants.
Dental Implant Placement
Placing the dental implant refers to the rod that is placed in the jawbone and functions as an artificial tooth root. Once the implant has fused to the jawbone, the restoration can take place. Restoring the dental implant means that a customized crown will be placed over your implant to replace the missing tooth.
While other dentists send their patients away to implant dentistry specialists for the tooth implant placement, we have all of the expertise necessary to perform both the placement and restoration right here in our office. Dr. Mady and Dr. Geren and their team are excited to place and restore your dental implants while ensuring your well-being from start to finish.
Here at the Center for Dental Anesthesia, we offer dental implant options for all kinds of patients. From a single tooth replacement to implant dentures for more extreme needs, we can help you get the smile you want!

Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a great permanent solution to missing or failing teeth. Tooth implants can last 15 years or more with an incredible success rate and are the longest lasting option for tooth replacement currently available. Dental implants are the best way to restore your smile’s natural look and give you back your confidence.
As opposed to dental bridges, dental implants won’t damage or decay the surrounding teeth and don’t have to be replaced as often, if ever. Implant dentistry also provides a more secure fixture, allowing you to chew and eat without worry of damage. Dr. Mady and Dr. Geren offer years of expertise that ensures your dental implants is safe, effective and comfortable.

“I am more than pleased with the results so far…”
"Thank you Doctor Mady, and all your wonderfully professional and caring staff. I have a medical condition that magnifies pain throughout my body. When I informed you of this before we started the extraction/implant/denture procedure, you listened carefully and convinced me you would do all in your power to minimize my pain and fear. You then called me at home to alleviate my concerns and again listen to my fears. I was still tense and frightened the morning of surgery in your Center For Dental Anesthesia, but you put me at ease with a tour of the facility, talks with key staff, and an easy transition to the best experience I have ever had at a dental office. The procedure was accomplished under the estimated time, I was eased back into consciousness with painkillers in my system, and was able to walk from the wheelchair to the car taking me home. You then personally followed up with a call to me at home, ensuring I was doing well. I had a rapid recovery and except for the usual bruising and swelling the first few days, I am more than pleased with the results so far. I plan to fly back from out-of state- to complete the process and discuss how the Department of Veteran’s Affairs can help my bottom teeth function with my new upper prosthesis. I would also like to acknowledge your charitable and compassionate contributions on behalf of Military Service Veterans, of which I am one, as well as several other programs to help the disabled and impoverished among our citizens. You recognize that dental health, a smile, and a well-engineered mouth are keys to self-respect. Your practice is like an oasis of hope in the desert of dental fear, pain, and a wide range of problems. Thank you!"

Dental Implant FAQ
How long do dental implants last?
The implant screw can last a lifetime with regular dental check-ups. The crown usually lasts 10-15 years before needing to be replaced due to natural wear and tear.
Are dental implants painful?
Our office ensures the most pain-free experience possible. Often times over-the-counter medication like Tylenol or Advil can ease any discomfort from bone pain due to the implant.
How long does the process take?
The time required varies for each person, but generally the first appointment for one tooth takes about an hour. Once the bone fuses to the implant, about four to six months later, your crown will be ready to be placed.
Are dental implants worth it?
In most cases, yes. Dental implants last longer than dental bridges or root canals, and are an effective and common permanent solution to missing or failing teeth.
Can your mouth reject an implant?
While it is possible, dental implants are the most adaptable and effective tooth replacement procedure with about a 98% success rate.
