Dr Mapes now uses an iTero digital scanner for all crown and bridge restorations...even Invisalign. No more goop impressions that make you gag!

RecentEvents

In less than one year since opening the practice, Dr. Mapes has become a preferred provider for Invisalign. He knows his stuff.

Why is this the best option?

  • A completely natural looking option
  • Nothing to put in or take out
  • Allows for normal flossing and home care (as opposed to a bridge)
  • No chance of damage to adjacent teeth

How does this work?

Decades ago, a European doctor by the name of Branemark found that titanium screws, when placed into bone, actually fused to the bone and could not be removed. Through a process known now as osseointegration, these small titanium screws can be placed in the jaw via a comfortable outpatient surgical procedure. After a period of healing, a crown is then placed over the implant replacing the missing tooth (or teeth).

How can it help my denture fit better?

We can place implants into a jaw with no remaining teeth and use the posts to act as retaining clips for a denture. After doing so, the bulkier parts of the denture can be trimmed away leaving the patient far more comfortable eating, chewing and speaking. It has literally chaged the lives of a number of our patients.
