Dental Implants In Sioux Falls

Lost a tooth and ready to permanently replace it? Dental implants could be an excellent option to regain the full functionality of your teeth and confidence. Are you looking for long-lasting and convenient relief from your dentures or decaying teeth? Look no further; the dentist of  Designer Dentistry is here to help.

What are Dental Implants?

The three parts — the screw, the abutment, and the crown — work together to provide you with a secure, natural-looking tooth replacement. The screw replaces your tooth’s root by integrating with the bone beneath your gums. This fusion with the jaw bone supports the custom-designed prosthetic crown, which is shaped to look just like a healthy natural tooth. The crown or custom bridge is attached to the implant screw using a small post called an abutment, which creates a safe and permanent hold to ensure that your tooth or teeth will never slip or fall out.

What are the benefits?

Dental implants provide many benefits over traditional tooth replacement options; rather than resting above the gums like most prosthetic options, they protect your overall oral health by preventing dental shifting and bone loss. Here are just a few of the reasons you should consider choosing dental implants at our office in Sioux Falls, SD, for your tooth replacement needs:

They allow you to enjoy your favorite foods without worry. The secure, permanent hold between the titanium implant and your jaw bone functions just like your natural tooth root, allowing you to eat the foods that you enjoy.

They will look beautiful and natural. Whether you replace one or all of your teeth, you will be able to smile confidently knowing that your new teeth look beautiful and natural.

They are a highly versatile tool. Whether you want to replace one tooth or many teeth, implants can support a variety of different prosthetic attachments to fit your needs. They can also be used to anchor temporary dentures or orthodontic tools.

They preserve the health and appearance of your mouth. When you have missing teeth, the bone beneath your gums can start to recede, causing your mouth and lips to look more sunken in. Extensive bone loss can cause oral health complications, but dental implants naturally stimulate the bone around the teeth, just like your natural tooth’s root would. This stimulation preserves the structure of your oral and facial bones. Additionally, implants prevent dental shifting and other problems associated with missing teeth.

Dental Implant Procedure

Your first appointment will consist of a thorough oral examination and consultation appointment. Your oral surgeon will take any necessary scans to form your treatment plan and determine the best course of action for your procedure. During this appointment, you will be able to ask your doctor any questions you have and discuss your overall treatment plan.

The surgical procedure is the next step in the treatment process. After administering your agreed-upon anesthetic option, your oral surgeon will place the screw into the empty tooth socket using advanced, custom-made surgical guides to ensure a proper fit. After the placement of the dental implant screw, your implant sites must heal before the tooth crowns are attached.

After the healing phase is complete, your oral surgeon will attach connecting abutments to your screws (if they were not attached already during your initial procedure). Then, your dentist will be able to attach your crown, bridge, or other permanent tooth attachment. The entire process is a joint effort between you, your oral surgeon, and your dentist.

I’m new to the area and was in need of a new dentist and I am so happy I found them. I was nervous about finding a new dentist because I have been going to the same dentist since I was a little kid but I am so happy I did. My hygienist was so nice and didn’t shame me for not flossing but instead gave me tips and tricks for making my oral care routine more effective. Dr. Nicole and her staff staff are truly amazing, kind, professional, and make you feel so welcomed in their office.

I had not been to the dentist for a long time and decided to give them a shot. The staff were friendly but I felt like I was being up-sold on things. Not the vibe I want from a health care provider. They did a deep clean and filled 4 cavities. I have great insurance but it was still very expensive. Now here’s the part that made me take the time to write a review on here: During my follow up appointment, about 1 month after the cavities were filled, they told me I had 2 more cavities that needed to be filled. I was suspicious because of the up-selling so I went to another dentist for a second opinion. They said I didn’t have any more cavities. These people were about to drill holes in my perfectly good teeth just to charge me more. This goes beyond bad business practices into the realm of disgusting dishonesty. Completely unethical.

First, let me say I am not a fan of ANY dentist and yes it may go to the point of FEAR. Which is why I have avoided D-D&S for several years. Unfortunately, I lost a filling and I am not even sure when it fell out nor does that matter. I had slight pain for a week or so prior to calling the office but when I called I was in SEVERE PAIN, which I informed the receptionist(Kathy) upon making my call for an immediate appointment. "Both dentists are with patients at this time, but you can come in forty minutes.", was the reply I received. I tried to grit my teeth through the forty and lasted about thirty, which seemed fine since they had paperwork for me upon arrival. I expressed my need to be seen and again I was waiting, waiting in extreme pain. When escorted back to an exam room, X-rays were administered showing the cause of my pain, an open nerve and a tooth that required a visit to an endodontist for a root canal. However, the dentist(Dr. Z.), was paged and didn't arrive to my exam room for several more minutes of severe pain; I know because I was visited by the dental assistant twice during my wait. Once again I complained about my discomfort and was given a medicated swab to bite down on in an attempt to relieve some of the pain. Finally Dr. Z. appeared with medication in injection form which did numb it. They were nice enough at DD&S to make me an appointment with Dr. Homer and he did a stand-up job at fixing the root canal issue. I wish I could leave it as a zero star rating but a one star rating is as low as GOOGLE will allow. IF you read this entire posting know that I am not against all dentists, Dr. Homer actually did a super job, was professional when he called to check on me the evening of the procedure; ending the call with comfort by telling me that the number he was calling from was his private cell number. I am not planning on visiting DD&S EVER in the future nor would I recommend that ANY friends or family visit Designer Dentistry and Smiles of Sioux Falls EVER in their future either. I believe my review speaks for itself and others should be allowed to read about my experience. Thanks for reading. Todd Schumacher

I’m always happy with the results of my dental work. My questions are always answered in a way that I feel is professional and educational. 08/23/22 I’m adding that Tiffany listened to me when she asked if I wanted is a little gift bag and I said oh yes especially dental floss! I got home and there were two dental flosses in the bag. I am a frequent flyer at Designer Dentistry. I always feel that they’re keeping my best interest in mind. Cassie gives me her opinion and I value it! Today I had Dr. Z and I’m as happy with her as I am with Dr. Nicole. 1/9/23 I continue to feel heard, supported and educated by Designer Dentistry. I trust their expertise and appreciate their professionalism.
