Phillip Katz, DDS Discussing Dental Implants

Eliminate Years of Bad Teeth

If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be struggling to bite and chew, or you may feel embarrassed to smile in photos or to socialize. Missing most or all of your teeth can result in changes in your facial appearance, pain and discomfort, an increased self-consciousness, and even a decline in your health, but no matter how many teeth you are missing, dental implants are a proven and permanent solution. Our exceptional team at State of the Art Smiles provides dental implants to our patients on a regular basis, and we’re here to help you achieve a brand-new smile that can fully restore your self-confidence!

The Characteristics of Our Dental Implants

Made up of three components – a titanium post, an abutment and a restoration – dental implants look, feel and function just like your healthy natural teeth. Secured in your jawbone, dental implants are one of the most versatile tooth replacements available, able to seamlessly replace any number of missing teeth. This “gold standard” in modern tooth replacement requires the precision of our highly trained implant dentist Dr. Phillip Katz, who utilizes some of the most advanced dental technology to optimize the outcomes of your personalized treatment for long-term success. Our team routinely provides dental implant treatment across a variety of cases, and utilizes the highest quality materials for beautiful results that last a lifetime. With our expertise and eye for detail, we can help you experience a life of health, function and confidence with dental implants!

Top 5 Mistakes People Make with Dental Implants

Do you have all the information you need to make the right decisions about dental implants? Don’t make any of these five common mistakes. Our exclusive checklist will steer you in the right direction.

Personalized Care, Personalized Choice

At State of the Art Smiles, we go the extra mile to personalize your treatment plan so your smile fits your mouth, face shape and skin tone. We can do this by offering fully customizable dental implant services:

Teeth In One Day

Missing one or more teeth can make you a great candidate for our Teeth In One Day dental implants. You can choose porcelain or acrylic restorations, which will be permanently attached to four or more posts that are implanted into your jawbone to restore cosmetic and functional benefits. Our Teeth In One Day option offers lasting results to a healthy, beautiful smile.


Implant Supported Dentures

Our implant supported dentures are attached to surgical implant posts, allowing our patients the option to remove their dentures for proper cleaning. Securely attached to the mouth without the need for adhesive to stay in place, our implant supported dentures also limit bone recession and allow patients the freedom to enjoy their normal daily activities and favorite foods. This full mouth restoration is a wonderful option for a healthy and beautiful smile!


Single Dental Implants

Missing one tooth may leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile, but if left untreated, it can create even larger issues for your oral health. To fill the gap of a missing tooth, your teeth may shift, which can cause you pain and discomfort, as well as the inability to chew certain foods! Not only can a single dental implant be used to replace one missing tooth and serve as a permanent tooth solution, it can restore your quality of life, both functionally and esthetically.

Your Custom Dental Implant Options

Dental implants can support a single dental crown or a dental bridge to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Dental implants can also be used to increase the stability of a modified denture, which snaps securely to the implants placed in the jawbone. For patients with many or all missing teeth, dental implants can permanently support a full, fixed bridge of artificial teeth. This solution makes it possible to eat any type of food with life-like, strong teeth. In all cases, dental implants improve your ability to eat comfortably, feel confident in a complete smile, and live an overall healthier and better quality of life.

What Are Dental Implants?

Strong, functional and beautiful! These are just some of the reasons why our patients choose dental implants to replace one or more teeth. Dental implants are durable and reliable, due to the titanium posts that are secured in the jaw and fused into the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. These implants act as your tooth roots and provide you with natural-looking permanent teeth in just one visit. If you are needing a full arch replacement, Dr. Katz recommends our All-On-X treatment, which requires only four implants that support a full arch of beautiful new teeth!

Are Dental Implants for Me?

If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be a great candidate for dental implants. Dental implants are also a great option for patients who currently have dentures and are looking for a more durable, permanent and comfortable solution. Patients with healthy gums and sufficient bone density have a 95% success rate for dental implants as the gums and jawbone help support the dental implant. If you have been told you are not a candidate for dental implants, consult our office. You and Dr. Katz will discuss your dental concerns and carefully evaluate your mouth to see if you have the option of dental implants or other forms of teeth replacement options.

Why Dental Implants Could Be Your Best Option

Dental implants provide numerous advantages over other tooth replacement options. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not require healthy teeth to be present to support the restoration. Dental implants only need proper jawbone density to remain secure and strong, where they will, in turn, provide stimulation to keep the bone healthy. Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants are permanently secured in your jawbone, where they serve as artificial tooth roots that restore more than 99% of your natural chewing and biting power. Dental implants provide a secure, permanent and functional new smile to restore your quality of life with beautiful and long-lasting results!

Why You’ll Love Your Brand-New Smile

The Steps to Your Smile of a Lifetime

Offering personalized treatment plans that restore your oral health and self-confidence is our top priority. We want you to feel fully comfortable with the smile that we customize just for you! Our dental implant treatments at State of the Art Smiles are personalized to your specific oral health needs and smile goals. We will start with your consultation, which is one of the most important and informative steps in our treatment process. Here, Dr. Katz gets to know you, your dental concerns and what you want from your smile. We will take digital X-rays, use our digital smile simulator to show you what your new smile will look like, and create a custom treatment plan using our digital planning software. Next, you will undergo dental implant surgery in Pickerington, OH. This may involve tooth extractions and bone grafting performed by Dr. Katz, utilizing the guided surgery plan built during your consultation. This guided system allows Dr. Katz to perform a surgery that is predictable and precise, for optimal results. During your surgery, you will be sedated and resting comfortably. Once your dental implants are secured into your jawbone, Dr. Katz will attach a temporary set of teeth, perfectly customized to fit your mouth using our iCam 4D photogrammetry scanner, so you can begin using your new teeth right away. Over the next several months, we give your dental implants time to heal and integrate into your jawbone. We will see you again for a follow-up appointment to check your healing progress and to discuss the next steps. Once your dental implants have healed, you will return to our office for your final set of restorations, which we create in-house using our 3D printer. We will attach your new set of teeth to your dental implants for you to enjoy for years to come. Our fully customizable dental implant treatments will restore your self-confidence and give you a rejuvenated zest for life!

Cost of Dental Implants

Dental implants can be one of the best investments for improving your smile and preserving your oral health. With proper dental care and routine dental visits, your dental implants should last a lifetime, unlike other tooth replacement options. Your initial consultation with Dr. Katz will involve building a customized treatment plan, including the cost of your dental implants. From there, we will discuss a variety of payment options that we can offer you to fit your budget.

Generally, dental implants are not covered by insurance providers. We know this can be a deciding factor in your oral health investment, which is why we offer third-party financing with fixed monthly payment plans that make restoring your smile – and quality of life – affordable.
