Dental Implants - The Advantages

Ceramic dental implants not only look like your real teeth, but they feel like your real teeth, because of the structural and functional connection between the dental implant and the living bone. They’re not only strong but beautiful as well.

Our Services

These are some of the services we offer.

All Ceramic, Metal-Free Implants

Most dental implants are still made of titanium which is a bio-compatible metal used for over 60 years to replace missing tooth roots. All ceramic/non-metal implants are the newest material being offered and has numerous advantages – primarily for people with true metal allergies or sensitivities. However, the dental implants Dr. Locante recommends are made of ceramic and are classified as non-metallic. It is very biocompatible with bone. Because of the compatibility, the jawbone grows around the implant making it firm and stable.

Pain-Free Sedation

There is very minor discomfort with this procedure when performed by a trained surgeon. We offer I.V. sedation, oral sedation (pills) and general anesthesia, in our Nashville, Tennessee area office to ensure our patients are pain free and completely comfortable. Most of our patients find that they do quite well with minor pain medication such as Ibuprofen (Advil) after the procedure. Most patients return to their normal activities within a day of their dental implant treatment.

Full mouth Restoration/Rehabilitation

We offer full mouth restoration at our clinic. That means if you need all your teeth restored, we can do it. If you have existing jaw or bone loss problems, we can also help you start to rehabilitate.

Dental implant treatment offers firm, stable, and natural looking teeth. Patients can eat almost anything they like and can smile with confidence again. Dental implants also stop the destructive bone loss process caused by trauma from wearing dentures.

People who have trauma from wearing dentures are most likely experiencing a gradual bone loss process that occurs when the teeth are extracted and tooth roots are missing. Because tooth roots stimulate jawbone health, the jawbone starts to shrink or melt away once the tooth roots are gone. Wearing a denture greatly speeds up the bone loss process. Normally, the lower jaw shrinks much faster than the upper jaw, causing the most problems.

The length of dental implant treatment varies and is determined by the specific treatment required. In some cases, patients can leave the office on the day of treatment with functioning teeth; however, most treatment plans require four to six months. The majority of the time is needed for the patient’s bone to “bond” or “integrate” with the dental implant.

If you wear dentures, we would like for you to keep your dentures out the day of treatment, but, thereafter, you can wear your dentures throughout your treatment.

Whether or not your dental implant treatment is covered by insurance depends on the insurance company and the type of coverage. Almost every policy is different. This area is one we are very familiar with, and we can help you with the determination of your insurance benefit.

Portfolio - A look at some of our work

When my implant practice started in 1988, I discovered early on that patients can learn a lot from Before and After photographs. Although a bit unsightly at times, the patients could actually see the benefits of implants right before their eyes. As an implant dentist, I like what the actual photographs communicate because photography, rather than just words, is much better at telling the complete story. We’ve included numerous before and after photographs which will show you, our valued website visitors, the end results of what implants can and should do.
