Dental implants offer the most reliable, long-term solution for tooth loss. Your teeth play an integral part in your overall health, affecting everything from your diet to your sense of well-being. Although having one or more missing teeth is common—affecting 120 million Americans—it does not make tooth loss any less embarrassing or problematic to your oral health. To help restore the health of your teeth and gums, we place dental implants for single, multiple, or full arches of missing teeth. Dental implants are the only permanent solution to tooth loss that provide healthy jaw bone stimulation, while improving the aesthetics of your smile and your quality of life.
Dental implants blend seamlessly into the smile to replace missing teeth with screw-like implants that adhere with the jaw bone. As you bite and chew with the attached dental crown, the implant provides the same bone stimulation as a natural tooth root, which keeps your bone levels healthy and protects the integrity of your smile.
Single dental implant: If you are missing even one tooth, your oral health is at risk. Without a tooth to stimulate the jaw bone, bone atrophy begins to occur which can lead to shifting of other teeth or increased risk of infection. We can replace your missing tooth with a natural-looking implant and crown the same day a tooth is removed.
Multiple dental implants: Missing more than one tooth is common and should be addressed immediately. Unlike a tooth supported bridge which relies on surrounding teeth to support the restoration, implants provide a healthy, more natural alternative to bridges, which will never shift, decay or require root canal treatment.
Full arch dental implants: If you have dentures and are looking for a more stable, healthier alternative, we can complete your smile in one visit. This option uses at least four dental implants surgically placed in the jaw bone to support a custom, natural-looking prosthesis. There are no pastes or need to worry about slipping dentures; this option is designed to stay in place.
“With dental implants there are a few different factors that determine the cost. What’s important is that we do things the right way. When taken care of the right way implants can last you a lifetime.”

Many patients visit our office because their multiple or full arch of missing teeth is causing them embarrassment, discomfort, and difficulty in everyday tasks like speaking and eating. Those who currently wear dentures are generally dissatisfied with the instability, goopy adhesives, slipping, and clicking. With the help of advanced technology, you no longer need to live with the complications associated with missing teeth or dentures. We offer full arch dental implants as a permanent, comfortable, and aesthetic solution to tooth loss.
“With full arch dental implants you can get a fixed denture thats going to stay in like natural teeth or we have an alternative that I like to call a semi fixed denture where we place implants and snap it in place until you snap take it off.”

With full arch dental implants, you can receive an arch of new teeth that, with proper care, can last your lifetime. Because each patient is different, we provide options to benefit your unique smile needs.
Two or more dental implants are strategically placed in your jaw bone to ensure proper stability and the most beneficial results. The implants will secure and support a full-arch dental prosthesis that looks, functions, and feels like your natural teeth. Most patients are candidates for this solution, even if their tooth loss has caused jaw bone deterioration.
Implant Supported Dentures
Combining the advantages of both dentures and dental implants, implant supported dentures are a comprehensive solution to tooth loss. Between two and eight implants are placed and your current denture, or a new one, is snapped onto either a metal bar (bar-retained denture) or individual implants (ball-retained dentures). This fixed solution is much more stable and durable than traditional dentures.

A full arch of healthy, functioning teeth does more than provide you with a great smile—it allows you to enjoy the foods you love, boosts your self-confidence, and lowers your risk for developing oral and systemic diseases. If you have multiple missing teeth or tooth loss in an entire arch, you may be suffering from associated symptoms like poor chewing and biting quality, difficulty speaking, or embarrassment from a gapped or toothless smile. Our periodontist, Dr. Stephen Strout, offers the TeethXpress® protocol, a high-quality, same-day solution to give you a full arch of new teeth and fully restore your smile in a single visit.
“With Teeth Xpress or the All-on-4 procedure, in most cases we can get you a fixed screwed down temporary in the same day we put the implants in. So you leave the same day with teeth that you can eat on that night”

Immediately replacing lost teeth with dental implants is the only way to preserve your jaw bone and sustain good oral health. Traditionally a long-term process, replacing missing teeth involved multiple dental visits and wearing temporaries while the permanent denture was fabricated. Utilizing the advanced technology of TeethXpress, Dr. Strout can extract remaining teeth, place four to six implants in your jaw bone, and immediately load your dental prosthesis so you can leave our office the same day with a full arch of brand new teeth! Even if you have been wearing dentures for years, this minimally invasive and highly successful procedure is the ideal solution to missing teeth.
TeethXpress combines the advanced technology of BioHorizons dental implants with traditional dentures to provide you with a full arch of new teeth in as little as one visit.
Dr. Strout will perform a comprehensive examination of your mouth to assess the current state of your remaining teeth and the structure of your jaw bone. From there, he will determine the best treatment plan, explain the benefits and risks, and listen to your questions and concerns.
Using advanced placement technology, Dr. Strout will place four to six dental implants, positioning them strategically in your jaw bone to ensure the highest quality results. Once the posts are in place, he will fix your dental prosthesis securely to the implants. Generally, this procedure can be completed in a single visit!
Dr. Strout will monitor your recovery process closely to ensure your mouth is healing properly. Over the next few weeks, we recommend patients stick to a soft diet, do not brush or floss, and use medicated mouthwash. You may experience minor and temporary discomfort.
Dr. Strout is a board-certified periodontist who has helped many patients fully restore the function and aesthetics of their smiles with the TeethXpress protocol. Placing full arch dental implants is a highly complex process, but it is a procedure Dr. Strout has years of experience in and performs on a regular basis. With a focus on your comfort and health, he brings this expertise to your procedure so you can leave with the highest quality outcome and a fully functioning smile the day of your appointment.

Have you been diagnosed with periodontitis, or gum disease? Gum disease is a progressive infection and early intervention can help protect your teeth and gums from long-term consequences, including bleeding gums, loose teeth, and even tooth loss. Traditional osseous surgery may have you cringing, however, due to its invasive nature requiring scalpels, incisions and, sutures. While this option has its benefits, advancements in dental treatment have provided doctors with a minimally invasive and virtually pain free alternative. We offer LANAP® laser gum therapy in our office to effectively treat your periodontitis and successfully restore the health of your gums.
Gum disease is a three-stage chronic condition characterized by inflammation, bleeding, and swelling of the gum tissue. Treatment is critical to your oral health as the progression of this disease can lead to tooth loss.
Example of How LANAP® Works
The LANAP protocol is a minimally invasive, patented laser dentistry procedure that successfully eliminates harmful gum disease-causing bacteria. Laser technology is used to gently clear away infection and disease from your teeth and gums without harming surrounding healthy tissue. After the area is free of infection, the laser is used to seal the pocket and encourage rapid healing.
The Benefits of LANAP:
To become certified in the LANAP protocol, doctors are required to take a year-long comprehensive continuum to gain necessary hands-on training and experience in increasingly complicated cases. Dr. Strout is a board-certified periodontist, and has passed all required training and certifications to provide you with the highest level of care in the latest and most minimally-invasive technology and techniques. His superior level of expertise in LANAP ensures your treatment will have predictable and beneficial outcomes, no matter the severity of your gum disease.
Dr. Strout can treat your gum disease with the most minimally invasive and comfortable treatment option available today. Call our office to schedule your consultation.
