Real Implant Testimonials "He Made the Whole Process Very Simple."
I have to say, this is the most pleasant experience I’ve ever had at a dentist’s office. From the people in the office to Dr. Schmitt himself. He took the time to make me at ease by explaining the process and answering any questions I had. He is very knowledgeable and proficient. He was able to remove my broken abutment screw from my implant after two other dentists had failed. I would highly recommend.
At the beginning of my 1st visit Dr.Schmitt recognized my fears and concerns regarding the process of dental implants. However, he put to rest any anxieties that I had by coordinating the process with my oral surgeon and his office. He made the whole process very simple. Dr.Schmitt and his nurse Jacqueline from day one showed professionalism and compassion. It was always a pleasure to go to his office. My new teeth I would say came out simply beautiful! Having dentures in the past .. I can definitely see the difference in quality and design. I would greatly recommend Dr.Schmitt and his staff for any implants or restoration work.View On Google

Why Dental Implants?
Many patients don't realize that losing a tooth leads to jawbone atrophy. When tooth roots are not stimulating your jawbone, it begins to weaken, which creates a host of problems, including reduced bite strength, additional tooth loss, and an aged-looking appearance. Because implants replace the tooth roots, they can prevent or reverse these issues.
If you choose a traditional denture or bridge to replace your natural teeth, you will likely need to have that restoration refitted or replaced in a few years. However, with proper care, dental implants can remain in place for a lifetime, and implant-supported restorations require fewer adjustments than their traditional counterparts.
Natural Function and Appearance
Traditional dentures are prone to slipping out of place. But dental implants provide a stable foundation for your restoration, allowing you to chew and enunciate normally without worrying about your dentures moving. Additionally, your implant-supported restoration will closely resemble your natural teeth.

All-on-4 Dental Implants An Expedited Solution for Complete Tooth Loss
If you are missing all of your top or bottom teeth, we may have the ideal solution for you. Dr. Schmitt can restore your smile using the innovative All-on-4® technique, in which a full denture is attached to just four dental implants.
There are numerous benefits of the All-on-4 approach. Obviously, placing four dental implants in your jaw instead of six or more is less invasive and results in a quicker recovery. Also, because the two posterior implants will be placed at a strategic angle that maximizes contact with existing bone tissue, many patients can qualify for the treatment without the need for preparatory bone grafting. This treatment is also unique because in most cases, the implants can support a full denture immediately following placement.
If you are curious about All-on-4 dental implants, we encourage you to contact us today.

The Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of dental implant treatment varies widely from case to case. A number of factors contribute to the total cost of this form of dentistry, including:
- Number of implants: Obviously, replacing one tooth with only one implant costs less than using multiple implants for multiple teeth.
- Type of restoration: A full denture costs more than a single crown. You may also have the opportunity to choose from different kinds of restorative materials, and some materials cost more than others.
- Preparatory procedures: Some patients need preparatory bone grafting or other procedures, which will inflate the overall cost of treatment.
Because Schmitt Prosthodontics is a highly specialized practice that can provide exceptional results, our implant fees are higher than those of other dentists in the area. However, we offer multiple financing options to help you fit dental implants into your budget.
