Implants are a superior way to replace missing teeth, in one area or the whole mouth. Implant technology has been used for many years and is better than dentures or partials for chewing and appearance. Implants help maintain bone in areas where teeth are missing.
If you’ve lost a tooth, an implant is a superior tooth replacement option that works similar to one of your natural teeth. In consultation with Dr. Turner, a periodontist surgically places an implant in your jaw. After healing time, Dr. Turner places an abutment that connects the implant body to the implant crown that you see above the gumline. The final restoration looks and functions similar to a natural tooth.
Full mouth implants
If you have few or no teeth remaining, a full mouth implant set can give you back your smile and your chewing ability. The All-On- 4® method allows a series of 4-6 implants (per arch) to support a permanently placed prosthetic. The implants keep the prosthetic stable and preserve bone.
If you’re considering implants, please ask Dr. Turner about what options may be best for you. We hope we can make you smile!
HANDHELD X-RAY UNITS
New Kavo Nomad X-ray units are the latest in X-ray technology. These handheld intraoral X-ray units allow the doctor and hygienist to take clear digital images of your mouth more quickly, with less radiation.
Dr. Turner now has a digital in-the- mouth scanner for taking impressions. Instead of using gooey material and trays, impressions for crowns, bridges, and implants can be captured with this 3-D scanner. Dr. Turner can see the model being built on the computer as you proceed through the scanning process. Impressions taken using
this method can be done more quickly and have a high rate of accuracy.

A root canal removes an infected or damaged dental nerve.
Q. Why do I need a root canal?
A. If you have a damaged or infected nerve, it can lead to pain. This pain can be very significant at times. Removing the nerve with a root canal will eliminate that pain.
Q. Do root canals hurt?
A. The nerve is fully anesthetized before the start of a root canal treatment. There should be no pain while having the affected nerve treated.
Q. What happens after my root canal?
A. Once the nerve is removed from the tooth, the tooth is basically dead and becomes brittle over time. A dental crown is placed on the tooth to protect it once a root canal is completed.
Q. What if I don’t do a root canal?
A. The pain or infection will get worse and possibly cause a medical situation.
