Tooth loss can make it difficult to chew, enunciate, or smile with confidence. Without the help of a dentist, the side effects can worsen.
At the Michael Bixby Center for Advanced Dentistry, we coordinate your dental implants treatment to improve your smile's form and function.

3 Benefits of Implants Over Other Dental Treatments
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Because the titanium in the implants is biocompatible, it can fuse with your bone tissue. As a result, implants create a stable, secure foundation for the long-lasting success of your restored smile.
Prevent Bone Recession
Implants can help maintain the integrity of your jawbone and facial features. Unlike traditional dentures or other forms of tooth replacement, dental implants can prevent the jawbone deterioration that usually accompanies the long-term absence of tooth roots.

How Are Dental Implants Placed? The Dental Implant Timeline
Dr. Bixby works closely with dental labs and oral surgeons to ensure his patients receive the best possible implant care.
Dental Implant Restoration Options
Single Tooth Replacement
We can replace a single missing tooth with one implant restored with a crown.
Multiple Tooth Replacement
Patients missing two or more consecutive teeth can benefit from a dental bridge secured with one or more implants.
Full Arch Replacement
Patients missing all teeth in the top, bottom, or both dental arches can benefit from implant-supported dentures. Patients can speak, smile, and chew knowing that their dentures will remain securely in place.
Kind & Professional
"Thank God for Dr Bixby and his office staff! I cracked a tooth dislodging a piece of it. Dr Bixby’s office was kind enough to come in early to accommodate me and replaced the filling and repaired the tooth (#30)- all in an hour." Kelly Taylor - 5-Star Google Review - 2020
Dental Implants FAQ
Does implant placement hurt?
We have several sedation methods available at our office and all of the oral surgeons we partner with provide effective anesthesia to make your surgery as free from discomfort as possible.
How do I care for my implants?
Once your crown, bridge, or denture is secured, you can care for implants just like your natural teeth by brushing and flossing regularly. It will be especially important to keep your regular checkups with Dr. Bixby so he can make sure the implants stay healthy and secure.
What kind of implants does Dr. Bixby use?
We have worked with most implant manufactures, but we most commonly work with the Astra and Ankylos implant systems.
Do my natural teeth need to be altered?
Usually, teeth surrounding the location of the missing tooth do not need to be altered. This is an advantage of implant dentistry over traditional restoration methods.
