By replacing your missing tooth, you’re doing a lot to improve the health of your smile:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space
  • Minimize bone loss in the jaw where the tooth is missing
  • Restore or enhance the shape of your face, which can change due to jaw bone loss
  • Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion


The dental implant process involves several key steps over several months and depends on your
personal goals, which we are happy to work with you to meet.


Dr. Coates will conduct a thorough examination and assessment of your oral health, evaluating bone density and overall suitability for your dental implants. This meticulous approach ensures that your unique needs and circumstances are taken into account.


After the initial assessment, Dr. Coates works closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. He will explain the procedure in detail, addressing any concerns or questions you may have so that you’re informed and comfortable throughout the entire process.


The next phase of the dental implant process involves the placement of the implant itself. Dr. Coates utilizes advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure precise implant placement, prioritizing comfort and a sturdy foundation for your new teeth.


Following implant placement, a healing period is necessary to allow the implant to integrate with the jawbone. Dr. Coates closely monitors this stage of the process, providing ongoing care and guidance to ensure optimal healing.


Once the implant has fully integrated, Dr. Coates meticulously crafts and attaches custom-made dental crowns or bridges, seamlessly restoring your smile and function. Enjoy your natural-looking and long-lasting results!
