"My visit with Dr. Orser was all that was expected. I was extremely nervous, but from all of the staff did their utmost to comfort my fears. But Dr. Orser was very honest and told me what to expect, and knowing that the doc prides himself with integrity and exceptional work he then proceed to give me gas so I wouldn't feel the pain of all the Novocain shots.

Best Candidates for Dental Implants
Implants can restore one or several lost teeth by connecting the implant to a crown, denture, or bridge. You may prefer implant dentistry if you have a removable or cemented dental restoration, but don't like the appearance, fit, or if there's special cleaning needed. Dental implants can be treated just like your normal teeth with daily flossing and brushing. At your consultation, we will evaluate the health of your jawbone and gums to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. In some cases, a bone or gum graft surgery may be needed prior to implant surgery to strengthen your mouth. Dental implants may not be appropriate if you use tobacco products, are pregnant, or are being treated for another issue such as periodontal disease.
What To Expect
To prepare for your dental implants, you may need to have teeth extracted, as well as gum and bone grafts. When you are ready for dental implant surgery, the needed areas will be given local anesthesia to numb your mouth. Other anesthesia or sedation options may be used to relax you throughout the treatment. The procedure will begin with a surgical incision in your gums so the post can be placed in your jawbone. The incision in the gums will be stitched closed with some of the dental implant above the gums. This will be repeated if several implants are required. While the dental implant integrates into the gums and jawbone over the following months, a temporary cover will be placed over the implants. As soon as it is decided that your implant is healed into your jaw and gums, your permanent restoration (bridge, denture, or crown) can be connected to your implant and adjusted for a comfortable fit.
There may be some short-term inflammation in your mouth and lower face, plus discomfort, bruising, and minor bleeding after your implant procedure. We will talk to you about what is to be expected and what should be reported to our office. We may also give you a prescription for pain relievers and antibiotics. After your dental implants are integrated and your restoration is connected, you should develop a good oral care routine at home that includes daily brushing and flossing. You should schedule annual exams and bi-annual professional cleanings so the health of your mouth and implants can be evaluated. Our team will talk to you if your restorations or implants should be adjusted, repaired, or replaced.
Based on your dental insurance company and personal coverage, part of the expenses of your implants and custom restoration might be paid for. We will talk to your dental insurance company to understand your coverage and determine your personal cost. At your initial consultation, a member of our team may estimate your expenses and discuss payment methods we accept, along with information on low-interest medical financing.
