Dental Implants

Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants

Replace your missing teeth with dental implants. At the Miller Center, we can replace and restore your implants all in one location, with no need for referrals. Dr. R. Craig Miller has years of training in implantology and is a respected member of The American Academy of Implant Dentistry and a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

A Permanent Solution

As an experienced Implantologist Dr. Miller is up to date with all the latest technology and treatments and is able to put patients at ease while providing several treatment options. Dr. Miller can place new implants and replace and repair failed implants.

At the Miller Center, you can place an implant-supported crown to restore a single tooth or place multiple implants to support dental bridges or complete dentures. You can also secure dentures using the popular All-on-4® technique, in which four strategically placed dental implants per arch hold the patient’s dentures in place.

The Miller Center is here to provide you with the solution that best fits you.

Diagnosis and treatment planning

Dr. Miller will first conduct a thorough exam to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. This involves using our 3D cone beam X-ray scanner to determine if your jaw has sufficient bone tissue to hold an implant.

Minimally invasive technique

On the day of your placement procedure, you have anesthesia administered and offered Nitrous Oxide to keep you relaxed and comfortable. Dr. Miller will make an incision in the gums and create a small pilot hole in the jaw bone. Next, he will place your titanium or zirconia implant. Finally, the gums will be sutured to facilitate healing. Over the next three to six months, your bone will become fused to the implant.

Abutment installation

Once this process is complete, you will undergo a second procedure in which Dr. Miller will make an incision in the gums, exposing the top of the implant. He will attach an abutment piece, which will connect the implant to your permanent restoration/crown. Although this process may seem overwhelming, the team at the Miller Center will work to ensure you are comfortable both before and after surgery.

About Dental Implants

We offer both titanium and zirconia implants. Titanium is the most common variety, but zirconia may be a better choice for patients who have metal allergies or wish to avoid metal for holistic reasons.

Dr. Miller typically recommends zirconia implants for patients who have thin gums or bone structure in the smile zone (parts of the oral structure that becomes visible when you smile) since titanium posts may create a grey hue at the gum line. We will work with you to determine which implant material is best for your case.

Will dental implants work for me?

Booking a consultation is the best way to find out if dental implants are right for you. Having enough healthy bone to support implants is a key factor. If your jaw bone has become worn and thin over the years, a bone graft may be necessary to set you up for implants.

Is the procedure painful?

Your health and comfort are our top priority. The dental implant procedure is completed with such care and precision you'll experience as little discomfort as possible. With proper aftercare, you can expect minimal swelling and almost no bleeding.

Will my teeth look natural?

Modern dental implants are practically indistinguishable from natural teeth. Your dental implant will be custom made to fit your smile.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Care for your dental implants like you would your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, 3-4 cleanings a year and checkups. Always letting us know if you have any problems are all part of maintaining your new smile.

How much will dental implants cost?

The cost of your dental implants will depend on the complexity of the solution that is right for you as every case is different. After your consultation we will provide you with a quote.
