At Affordable Dental Center of Wellington, we do everything possible to keep your natural teeth healthy because we understand that losing teeth can be a traumatic experience. A gap in your smile can make you feel self-conscious and complicate both eating and speaking.
We are here to help.
Whether you are facing dental extractions or currently have missing teeth, come talk to us. We offer a number of tooth-replacement options and will help you find one that works best for you.
Dr. Steven Bussell takes a special interest in dental implants because they are the closest you can come to having your natural teeth again.
To provide this valuable treatment for our patients, Dr. Bussell sought additional training with leading experts in the dental implant field.
One Dentist – Complete Care
From the extraction of a tooth to your custom implant crown, you can enjoy world-class dentistry from an experienced dentist who is committed to outstanding care every step of the way.
Dr. Bussell has years of experience in each phase of dental implant treatment, but what patients usually comment on is his gentle and friendly approach to dentistry.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Patients appreciate dental implants because they don’t move or shift and they look completely natural.
Did you know that dental implants also protect your oral health? Implants help keep teeth from shifting as well as prevent bone loss. You also won't have to deal with dietary restrictions.
In addition to many health benefits, you can count on Dr. Bussell to design a crown that looks so real that no one will notice your dental work. Conveniently, implants are easy to take care of, requiring the same maintenance as your natural teeth.
We love seeing our patients’ faces light up when they tell us how dental implants gave them their smiles and their confidence back.
Dental Implant Treatment
Evaluation and placement – Dental implants need adequate bone quality to support them. Dr. Bussell will begin with x-rays and an exam to determine the ideal location for your implant, and then he will gently secure it in place.
Bone grafting and sinus lifts – Insufficient bone or interfering sinuses do not automatically eliminate dental implants as an option. Bone grafting and sinus lifts make dental implants possible for most people, and Dr. Bussell provides both services right here in our office.
Healing and integration – Dental implants are designed to integrate with your natural bone. This is an essential part of the dental implant process and takes about 3 to 6 months to complete.
Dental implant crown – Dr. Bussell will place a custom dental implant crown that matches and functions like your adjacent teeth.
Immediate Implant Placement
If a tooth requires extraction, sometimes we can place the implant at the same time, eliminating multiple surgeries and reducing the number of appointments.
Our patients appreciate the convenience of having a dentist who offers multiple facets of dentistry in one office.
If you are missing multiple teeth, we can discuss innovative alternatives with implant-supported dentistry.
By supporting dental bridges with implants, it makes it possible to replace more teeth while adding the support necessary for chewing.
Implant dentures combine the stability of dental implants with dentures to lock them in place. This improves denture fit and function and eliminates those embarrassing mishaps where dentures shift or fall. Implant-supported dentures also allow for a smaller base, which improves comfort and allows patients to taste their food better.
