Implant Dentistry

A dental implant is a replacement for a missing tooth or teeth. The implant itself is a small, titanium screw that is placed under the gums. After the implant has healed, a post is attached to the implant and a crown is placed on top of the post.

Some patients believe that dental implants will be painful. By utilizing modern minimally invasive techniques, we are able to provide dental implants with little to no discomfort. We offer sedation for the dental implant procedure and appropriate post-operative medications. Most patients find they take very few pain pills after the procedure.

Some patients also think that they won't be able to afford dental implants. By focusing on volume and efficiency, we are able to offer dental implants at a lower price. Because we purchase implants in bulk, we are able to negotiate a better price and pass the savings on to the patient.

Drs Maupin and Brown have placed thousands of dental implants. If you are missing a tooth or teeth and would like a free consultation, call us at 575-627-0141.
