Are you eager to find out whether or not you're eligible to receive dental implants? Consult with your dentist or schedule a consultation with Dr. Caudry's team.

Dental Implants Are Our Specialty
Clients come to us, not just because we offer unique, one-of-a-kind dental implants. They come to us because we know how to place them without issue while always prioritizing the comfort of the patient.
Though implantology has been in practice for over 50 years, the practice has and continues to evolve significantly. Dr. Caudry and her team have been at the forefront of the latest developments. As one of the first clinicians to receive training in computer-guided surgery, Dr. Caudry remains one of the most respected and innovative members of her field.
Rest assured, our goal is two-fold: to increase overall efficiency, and also to enhance patient-comfort however possible. With many accolades to our name already, we predict that we'll only continue to improve the overall patient experience.
Through the integration of digital workflows, the treatment planning process has never been easier or more exact, and that says nothing about the surgical process. Every aspect of our approach has been fine-tuned and streamlined, ensuring picture-perfect results every time. You'll leave with a long-lasting crown guaranteed to bring out the best in your unique and wonderful smile.
Computer-Guided Dental Surgery
The implant planning and surgical processes are truly where we rise to the occasion for our patients. Here, we embrace the wonders of digital workflows.
Intraoral scanners and digital technologies have completely revolutionized the way we practice dentistry. They do not just improve the planning and preparatory stages of oral surgery either, they also have improved the surgical stage too. Rest assured, Dr. Caudry has embraced-and mastered-these technological innovations to the fullest. Dr. Caudry is no stranger to being at the forefront of periodontics. She was one of the first periodontists in North America to integrate digital workflows into her practice. She is always looking for new ways to increase surgical accuracy and patient comfort.
We're proud to be a leading practice that uses computer-guided surgery techniques. By harnessing the power of computer-assistance technology, we're able to minimize the risks and improve the predictability of our procedures. For our patients, that means faster recovery times, less discomfort, and less time in the chair.
Recently, Dr. Caudry's office purchased a Dentsply Sirona intraoral scanner known as the Omnicam. This state-of-the-art piece of equipment allows for dental impressions to be taken digitally. That means no more mess, no more discomfort, and no more awful taste in your mouth! At our practice, we strive to be always improving the patient experience -and through the use of advanced technology, we continue to achieve that aim.
The Digital Dental Implant Procedure
Dr. Caudry is an innovative practitioner committed to making dentistry more accessible, less intrusive, and less uncomfortable for her patients. One way she's doing that is through the use of digital-impression technology: a pioneering technique for casting an imprint of a patient's teeth.
We all remember what it meant to retrieve dental impressions in the past. Dental impressions were once a messy, uncomfortable, and time-consuming procedure, requiring the patient to bite down on a sticky tray adhesive to create a mold of their mouth. Not anymore. At our practice, we use the CEREC Omnicam to create a digital impression of your teeth and gums. The Omnicam allows us to capture the same information as a traditional cast impression, but without all the mess and duress of a traditional mold.
There are many advantages to our safe and innovative approach to oral surgery. Despite fewer appointments and less chair-time for our patients, there is greater potential for accuracy and much less discomfort during the scanning process, as well as the surgical procedure.
What You Can Expect from the Dental Implant Procedure
After your dental exam and overview of your health history are completed, we will develop a specialized surgical plan just for you.
Surgery begins with us freezing where the implant will be going. To ensure maximum comfort, our team of medical anesthesiologists will be happy to offer a wide range of sedation options detailed below.
The implant is then placed into your gum's bone, and an abutment is placed onto the implant. Afterward, the soft tissues are sutured to ensure it can heal seamlessly. Once the bone has attached itself to the implant, the small abutment is replaced with a tooth expertly designed for you.
Swift Recovery Process
After the placement of the implant, patients are given time to heal. Healing time for the surgery varies from person to person. We prefer not to rush the healing process, but some people have been able to receive their new tooth almost immediately after the implant has been placed. Our pioneering approach allows us to minimize the invasiveness of our surgery, ensuring our patients enjoy a swift recovery.

Many people are wary of visiting an oral surgeon because of the discomfort and pain associated with surgery. Here, however, our medical anesthesiologists offer a variety of sedation options ranging from twilight sleep to complete sleep. With gentle anesthesia, your time in the dentist's chair feels brief, and you experience no discomfort.
The twilight sleep option, also known as 'Barely Aware, Don't Care,' ensures profound comfort and zero pain. Should you choose the twilight sedation option, you will leave our facility with little to no memory of your session. We are also able to increase sedation levels at any moment during your surgical procedure, as well.
Should you select the complete sleep option, you will fall into a deep sleep state, losing consciousness altogether. For those who experience moderate to severe anxiety when they're in the dentist's chair, this is the option for you. You'll rest through the entirety of the procedure and walk away from our facility with no memory of the procedure.
We also recommend the complete sleep option to patients who wish to undergo multiple implant procedures at once. Rather than lying awake during numerous lengthy procedures, you'll be able to rest peacefully. Due to our ability to provide comfort during your procedure, we can complete multiple treatments in a single appointment. Your treatment will require fewer visits and fewer disruptions to your day-to-day life. You'll be done and ready to go in no time.
Dental Implants are the Real Thing
There are numerous alternatives to dental implants available to individuals today. Some of these are quick-fix solutions, while others are well-constructed prosthesis that let patients go about their days in peace.
Why choose dental implants over the alternatives? The reason is simple: Dental implants are the closest thing imaginable to a real tooth. In terms of performance and appearance, they are virtually indistinguishable. You don't have to worry about immediate discoloration because they're designed to match your existing teeth perfectly-and that's not all. Because they are integrated into the jaw bone over time, they perform as natural teeth do. There is no added worry of them falling out or breaking unexpectedly. They are just as strong as natural teeth, if not stronger.
Dentures and resin-bonded bridges may look similar to natural teeth, but they also wear faster over time, and they will need to be replaced as you age. Plus, they can feel unnatural in your mouth-dentures especially, since you need to remove and insert them. What's more, resin-bonded bridges have a higher failure rate and need to be re-bonded regularly.
Natural Looking Teeth
By contrast, dental implants look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth. They are the only option that is a permanent solution, requires similar upkeep as your other teeth, and prevents bone and gum loss.
We know how the resin-bonded dental bridges of days' past look after years of use. Many people worry that their new dental implant or implants will suffer the same fate. With proper care, however, your dental implant will look wonderful for decades to come.
That said, dental implants are not immune to failure and complications. Much like natural teeth, dental implants need to be cared for. Patients must practice proper hygiene, schedule routine visits to a periodontal hygienist, and remain vigilant. In doing so, they'll be sure to reap the wonderful benefits of their dental implants as intended.
Implants Made for You
Your smile is one of your most unique attributes. Many people worry that dental implants will compromise the smile's unique characteristics, but that is not the case. While the crown might make you feel a little better about your smile, you will still be you-and in the best way possible.
Your custom-made crown will be perfectly suited for your existing smile. It will give you the confidence you need to show your teeth freely, and it will be as strong as a healthy and natural tooth. For a picture-perfect smile, dental implants are the only way to go.
Post-Operative Care at Our Dental Implant Clinic
Your journey to a beautiful smile does not end with the initial surgical procedures. After the implant placement procedure comes the post-surgical recovery period. This recovery period may take several months, but you will be free to live life as normal during that time. If you abide by the instructions provided by Dr. Caudry's staff, your new implant should heal as intended.
After your surgery, we will schedule a follow-up appointment to assess sutures and place your crown. The thoroughness of our team ensures that your implant will heal wonderfully, and you'll have all the information you need to look after your new tooth after receiving it.
We strive to provide the most comprehensive patient care possible. Following surgery, we'll be happy to answer any questions you may have about your recovery, and we'll do everything we can to ease the process. Many of our patients opt for Advil and/or Tylenol for pain relief, but we can also provide you with a prescription for medication if necessary.
