Achieve the Picture-Perfect Smile You've Always Wanted
We are firm believers that every person has a beautiful smile. For some, however, that smile has been hampered by tooth decay, oral trauma, or bad luck. Our job is to bring out the smile that is hiding beneath the dental issues.
Some people consider oral health more important than the quality of a person's smile. Here, we believe that both are richly connected to one another. After all, many of the problems that lead to an undesirable smile might later lead to issues such as shifting teeth, recessed gums, gum disease, and so on.
Many people who have experienced tooth damage or decay worry that they have lost their smile for good. Worry not-your once-beloved smile is within your reach. We can restore your smile to its former glory. Depending on your circumstances, you may be positioned to receive a smile that outshines the one you have always known.
Restoring Your Confidence
Dental implant surgery is about more than replacing a tooth to avoid future dental issues. Oral surgery is about restoring your smile and restoring your confidence. It is about feeling comfortable in your own skin.
We take pride in improving the lives of our patients. Over the years, we have introduced countless efficiencies to our practice. With Dr. Caudry at the helm, we will only continue to do so.
Digital Smile Design for You
Do you have a desire to reclaim-or even reinvent-your smile? If so, we can help you. Through the magic of digital smile design (DSD), anything is possible.
DSD refers to the integration of various mediums and methods to give patients and surgeons a richly detailed, three-dimensional picture of a patient's teeth and gums. When creating these images, we rely on:
- Intraoral scanners
- Video technology
- Innovative software
- And more
This approach adds an unrivaled level of clarity to the one-on-one consultation process. By implementing these technologies, we are able to give you an idea of what we see when you're seated in the dentist's chair. You'll have a chance to see what potential changes might look like and how you would stand to benefit from gum grafts, dental implants, and more.
When it comes to surgical processes like this, we prefer to eliminate the guesswork. With our cutting-edge technology, we're able to do just that. Prior to the surgical procedures, you'll have a vivid idea of the forthcoming results.
Digital smile design allows us not only to improve patient experiences but also improve patients' smiles. It allows us to render your teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues in a 3D digital space, which we can then display and manipulate to give you a clear image of your dentition. It allows us to show you precisely what we can do to improve your smile and to work with you to design your smile to suit you. We're making it easier, smarter, and safer for you to get the picture-perfect smile you've always wanted. Don't be afraid to take advantage by booking a personal consultation today.
A Fresh Start for You
A dental implant does more than ensure the ongoing health of your teeth and gums. With a dental implant, you can restore or even recreate your smile.
We can help you get to a place where you finally feel comfortable sharing the wonderful smile you’ve always had. We can restore your teeth, restore your smile, and restore your confidence.
Would you like to see some examples of the work we have conducted in the past? Feel free to browse our website or ask to see images during your consultation. We are confident that our past successes will convince you of our capabilities.
A Dental Implant Rescue Specialist
Dental implants are as strong and long-lasting as natural teeth, make no mistake. That said, they are not indestructible. Like natural teeth, they can fall victim to neglect or unforeseen accidents. Thankfully, we are just a phone call away.
We do more than simply provide people with new dental implants. We also rescue existing dental implants from the brink of failure and disrepair. For those who have damaged their implants in a minor accident, our services are a financial lifesaver.
Although dental implant surgery has a very high rate of success, implants can develop infections just like regular teeth. In order to prevent potential problems, Dr. Caudry takes every precaution to ensure that your dental implants remain healthy and fully functional. Her practice provides regular, in-depth check-ups to catch the warning signs of any possible developing problem.
In cases of poor implant health, she uses a range of strategies to rescue your implants and improve your oral health. With her expertise, you stand the best chance of saving your implants, saving you money and ensuring your teeth and gums remain healthy.
If you are experiencing any of the following problems, she is here to help:
- Sensitivity or discomfort around the implant
- Unpleasant smells or tastes in your mouth
- Receding or discolored gums around the implant
- Difficulty cleaning around the implant site
- Swelling and redness around the implant
Dental implants are very much like natural teeth. Without brushing, flossing, and proper oral care, your new dental implant and the surrounding gums might fail you. Certain health issues might also contribute to the failure of an implant. Whatever the case, we are capable of salvaging your implant if we identify the issue early enough. If you are worried about the state of your dental implants, do not hesitate to contact us.
When a Tooth Replacement Is Necessary
If your smile and confidence have been compromised by a damaged or decaying tooth, we invite you to contact our facilities. Based on the determined condition of your tooth, we will walk you through all the options available to you. Every patient is different. Thankfully, we care about these differences.
Replacing a tooth can be stressful: we know. At our practice, we provide compassionate care to alleviate that stress and ensure our patients' comfort. We'll be there to discuss your options, answer your questions, and give you the care and attention you deserve. Here at Dr. Caudry's, we don't like to pressure our patients: We like to help them, inform them, and educate them on their next best steps to improve their smile. If you suspect you need a tooth replacement, don't hesitate to contact us today. Our team will be sure to assist.
A Transparent Practice Focused on Your Needs
Our practice is guided by a single focus: the patient.
We are upfront and understanding about our patients' concerns, including costs and recovery times. We are transparent about our prices, and we'll be happy to provide you with a thorough breakdown of the costs of surgery. We'll also explain what you can expect during your recovery and how to take care of your tooth replacement.
If you need help understanding your insurance, we'll be sure to help with that too. We'll be there to help you determine your coverage and see how much you can expect to save. At our practice, we want you to have the information, know all the benefits, and understand all the risks so that you can make an informed decision on your dental well-being.
Your First Visit with the Tooth Implant Specialists
Many people are wary of going to see a dentist, no matter how well-recommended they come. Some people go decades without visiting a dentist, and over time, their anxieties of painful procedures and high dental bills only skyrocket.
One step into our facilities and your anxieties will quickly dissolve. Here, our dream team of front-desk and administrative staff are as valued as Dr. Caudry. We do everything we can to make patients comfortable and secure in their decision to work with us. From reviewing their insurance plans to communicating various procedures with clarity, we give patients more than a pretty smile-we give them peace of mind.
Your very first visit with us includes a review of your medical history and a clinical and radiographic examination. Following the analysis, we will discuss the diagnosis and review all possible treatment options as well as their risks, benefits, prognosis and costs. Our team will help you weigh your options, come up with solutions, and find the right course of action for you.
Are the Dental X-Rays for the Dental Implant Procedure Safe?
Despite x-rays being extremely safe for both adults and children, they remain one of the many things that leave potential patients feeling nervous. We understand the hesitation that you may feel. That said, we assure you that you have nothing to worry about when you visit our facility.
At our facilities, safety and patient comfort are our top concerns. That is why we've sought to improve the x-ray procedure. Here, you will only receive digital x-rays, which require four times less radiation than a conventional X-ray. Even an entire series of x-rays (twenty in total) have radiation levels equivalent to several days of sunlight or a 4-hour flight on an airplane.
We like to calm our patients by assuring them that our x-rays are safer than spending a week in New York City or drinking half a bottle of wine-because it is true. A medical CBCT scan exposes an individual to 200 times more radiation than our three-dimensional bone scans. Here at Dr. Caudry's practice, we put your needs and well-being first. We take every precaution to ensure our methods meet the highest standards for safety, predictability, and effectiveness.
Patient-Centered Dental Care
Patients want to work with periodontists that put their comfort first. They don’t want to undergo cutting-edge procedures and seek treatment that doesn’t take their own well-being into consideration, after all.
No professionals understand that better than Dr. Caudry and her exceptional staff. Here, we keep the patient in mind every step of the way. From the pricing of our services to the implementation of procedures, we put the patient first.
We strive for two things in our facilities: picture-perfect results and patient-centered care. With the help of cutting-edge technologies, we perform flawless procedures, time, and time again. As for the comfort of the patient-that's what truly sets us apart from the rest.
Even before you sit in the dentist's chair, we'll make sure you have everything you need to be as comfortable as can be. We'll welcome you through the front door with a smile and answer any questions you might have. When precision and patient-comfort are your clinician's objectives, you get the results you want without any unnecessary discomfort.
Everything from our CBCT scans to our computer-guided surgical methods is administered with the utmost care. With us, you'll have a patient experience like no other. From the moment you walk through our door to the moment you leave, we'll make sure every moment is as comfortable as can be.
Convenient Scheduling Options
The patient experience does not begin when you seat yourself in the dentist’s chair. It begins much earlier than that. It begins when you visit first contact our facilities to schedule your first appointment. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with how we handle every patient’s scheduling process.
Every aspect of our service is tailored according to the needs of our patients. With us, even the scheduling process is as straightforward as can be. With the help of our front-desk staff, we can schedule your upcoming treatments at times most convenient for you. We want you to feel at peace when you visit our facilities.
Our Approach to Dental Sedation
Day after day, we work with patients that suffer from moderate to severe dental anxiety. They experience discomfort in the dentist’s chair, they feel nervous talking with periodontists, and some even squirm at the thought of ever undergoing a routine dental procedure. We understand the worries and anxieties that you harbour. We want to do everything we can to ensure you are comfortable under our care. With the help of dental sedation, we are confident we can make this possible.
Do you find yourself feeling nervous about sitting in the dentist’s chair for an extended period of time? To put you at ease, we offer a variety of sedation options. With sedation, you can feel comfortable for the duration of your session at our facilities. You can undergo lengthy surgeries without discomfort, endure those sessions that normally inspire anxiety, and so much more. Dental sedation is effective, safely administered, and available to everyone in need.
We take a patient-centered approach to every aspect of dental and surgical procedures. Every advancement that has been integrated into our practice has only been adopted to better serve the patient. Our practice is even more patient-centered with our adjustable sedation options and gentle anesthesia administered by trained professionals.
Oral sedation dentistry, or simply dental sedation, is a medical procedure that involves the administering of sedatives to facilitate both the patient and the dental procedure. It is one of the many ways we go about ensuring your comfort level when you're seated in the dentist's chair. With sedation, you won't have to worry about anxiety, stress, or your comfort level. Upon request, we'll even adjust sedation levels to improve your experience.
We offer two sedation options: The first is 'Twilight sedation'. Twilight sedation produces a state of comfort and zero pain in our patients. Though you won't be fully unconscious, you will find yourself in a state we describe as, 'Barely Aware-Don't Care'. This level of sedation ensures that you will have virtually no memory of the procedure or procedures. If needed, our on-site medical specialists (Anesthetists) can adjust sedation levels at any point, ensuring optimal comfort.
Our other option is 'Complete Sleep'. As the name suggests, Complete Sleep sedation places patients in a calm, unconscious state. With this gentle and sophisticated anesthesia, you will have zero awareness of any treatment. As you might expect, we administer Complete Sleep and Twilight sedation with hospital-caliber anesthetic equipment.
Sedation Dentistry: Is It Right for Me?
Many people are familiar with dental sedation but are not sure whether they’re worthy candidates. Some worry that their anxiety levels do not meet the criteria for sedation administration. Others, meanwhile, worry that their procedure may not warrant the use of sedation. Dr. Caudry wants you to put these worries away. We offer dental sedation to all patients who stand to benefit from it.
There is more than one reason for sedation during dental and surgical procedures. Some of our patients benefit from the induced state of tranquility because they're anxious about sitting in the dentist's chair. For other patients, sedation allows them to book multiple surgeries in a single appointment, saving themselves lots of time and stress. With our anesthesia, you can rest calmly while our team carries out one procedure after another without any fuss.
When you are stressed or uncomfortable, a minute can feel like an hour. With the help of dental sedation, an hour can feel like a single minute. Whether you'd like to curb your anxiety, or you'd simply like to rest, sedation is for you.
While some procedures might only require a local anesthetic to numb an impacted area, some patients might still require a sedative to soothe their nerves. In the case of dental implants, sedation benefits everyone—even the oral surgeons. With sedation, multiple procedures can be carried out in one sitting without compromising the patient's comfort.
What to Expect from the Tooth Implant Procedure
Are you one of the many individuals who dread going to the dentist? We are here to dispel the childhood fears of the dentist's chair. With our computer-guided methods and ongoing prioritization of your comfort, your time with us will be nothing like your childhood visits to the dentist.
Dental Implant Planning
We place a great deal of emphasis on the preliminary phases of dental procedures. By investing time in the planning and preparations, we are able to ensure the surgical procedures go as smoothly and predictably as possible. With the help of implant planning software, we can explore all the possible surgical avenues without asking you to sit in the chair for a long time. Instead, we take digital scans and x-rays that allow us to recreate your mouth on sophisticated software. With these tools, we can even show you a step-by-step process of the work we plan to undertake.
During the preliminary stages, we will begin taking steps to ensure the most successful surgical outcomes possible. Prior to your surgery, we will prescribe you antibiotics that must be administered in full, from the day before the procedure onward. The surgery itself is performed with little pain or discomfort, and you are also given the option of I.V. sedation for increased comfort.
The implant is placed in the prepared site, and the surgical site is then closed with sutures. The suturing process is quite swift. With the anesthetic or sedation levels of your choosing, the suturing process will likely proceed without notice. After the surgery, it is recommended that you maintain a soft diet to keep discomfort to a minimum. The soft diet ensures that no solid foods impact the surgical site while it is still healing. To ensure your nutrition levels remain optimal during this phase, we will gladly provide you with a list of nutrient-rich food items suitable for consumption. You will also be prescribed appropriate pain medications.
Furthermore, we will schedule 2 post-operative appointments to ensure everything continues to go according to plan. The first appointment will be 10 days after the surgery, and the second appointment will be 2-3 months later to verify that the implant has successfully integrated with the bone. The post-operative period is crucial to the success of your dental implant. With us closely monitoring the surgical sites, we can ensure complete success.
Educating Our Clients
After undergoing dental implant surgery, it is important that you take proper care of the surgical site and your new, natural-looking tooth. We will make sure you have all the information you need to heal properly. We will provide you with reading material, helpful instruction, and so much more. With this information, you will know exactly how to care for your teeth and gums in the coming months.
We believe in empowering our patients by keeping them informed. In our facilities, you will find no shortage of reading materials and pamphlets for you to browse. If at any point you find yourself with further questions that need answering, all you’ll have to do is ask anyone on our staff. We are always eager to answer your questions, address your concerns, and help you however possible.
Post-Operative Dental Care
We try to impress upon our patients that dental care does not begin and end in the dentist’s chair. To maintain the shimmering results we give you, practicing proper hygiene is an absolute must. A dental implant does not fend off future oral issues. Even an implant as incredible as the one you receive from us requires care and attention. For a dental implant to continue to thrive, it is important that you treat your new tooth as if it is one of your natural teeth.
After we have conducted the implant surgery, we will gladly walk you through the steps to properly care for your teeth and gums. With proper flossing and cleaning, you'll have optimal oral health for years and years to come. Frequent check-ups and professional cleanings will also stave off those hard-to-identify oral issues that go unseen by even the most diligent individuals. We’ll help create a personalized oral health regime for you and provide you with tips on maintaining your smile post-implantation.
Post-operative Tips for Patients
The first few days of recovery are crucial to the success of your dental implant surgery. For your benefit we advise our patients to do some of the following:
Oral health is important, make no mistake. After having received your dental implant, though, some tasks are best avoided for at least a few days. We advise this because even something as innocent as rinsing with mouthwash could potentially disturb the wound. You will be able to resume rinsing, spitting, and using a straw after the wound and blood clot have stabilized.
Avoid Excessive Brushing and Flossing
It is the natural impulse of any health-conscious patient to want to brush and floss. However, during the first few days of your recovery period, we ask that you brush as carefully as possible.
What to Eat After Dental Implant Surgery?
A healthy and nutritious diet is crucial to the speedy recovery of any patient. That said, there are some foods that you should try to avoid for the first few days of recovery. As tempting as it might be to eat raw vegetables or oranges, you might find that they contribute to post-surgical discomfort. In some cases, they might even compromise the success of your dental implant surgery.
Some food to avoid include:
- Hot soup
- Raw vegetables
- High-acidity foods
Despite these dietary restrictions, there are many foods you can still enjoy without issue. Some of these include smoothies, yogurts, eggs, and cold soup. You can also freely ingest soft vegetables, as these pose less of a risk. Be sure to ingest even these soft and manageable foods with care to ensure a swift recovery—and avoid straws when you’re drinking your smoothies or cold beverages!
