Dental Implants

A New Way to Restore Your Smile

Dental implants function, fit, and feel just like your natural teeth. They have become the preferred standard of care for dental prosthetics. No more dentures slipping around your mouth while you talk or chew – dental implants stay in place.

These artificial teeth keep your jaw from losing bone mass, support your facial muscles so your cheeks don’t sag, and enable you to consume a balanced diet that’s better for your body. 5 Mile Smiles has the experience and latest technology to perform implant surgery with precision and finesse.

Technology for New Teeth

Dental technology evolves constantly. Jason Keefe, DDS at 5 Mile Smiles is committed to providing the best care for his patients, and that means the best technology AND rigorous training!

For dental implants, we use a CBCT imaging device, which is similar to an MRI in that it shows us an internal, 3D view of your mouth, jaw, and teeth. With this software and imaging, we will virtually place the implants before your surgery. The virtual implant acts as a surgical guide that makes your actual implant a safe, secure procedure every time. Further, we use a diode laser during the procedure. The laser creates a clean, precise incision with minimal bleeding for a quick healing time! After the surgical placement, your new titanium root fuses with your jaw, a process we call osseointegration.

Single Tooth Implants

Having even one tooth extracted can cause the other teeth to shift. This can lead to the following problems:

  • Bone loss
  • Crooked Teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
  • Self Consciousness

At 5 Mile Smiles, we can implant a new titanium implant tooth to replace the extracted one. The new tooth will look and feel like one of your own. With our CEREC crown technology, the procedure can be completed in the same day, so you’ll be able to smile with confidence that night!

Teeth In A Day

If you’ve ever had a crown put on, you might be expecting goopy impressions and a two week wait time for the crown to be made and shipped to your dentist. Dr. Keefe is the dentist near you who uses digital impressions and CEREC technology to have your crowns made and put on the same day you get your implants!

Implant Retained Dentures

If you need a full arch of dentures, either on the upper or lower jaw, Dr. Keefe can help! Dentures can be custom made and fitted to snap onto your dental implants. These give you the stability of great fitting denture that’s still removable for cleaning. You can continue to maintain excellent oral hygiene while wearing a prosthetic that stays in place when you depend on it the most.
