At Tioga Dental & Orthodontics, our team strives to give patients the healthy, beautiful smiles they deserve with an exceptionally high standard of quality care. Our practice offers patients from Gainesville and surrounding communities a comprehensive approach, focusing on several specialties and offering services that are designed for patients of all ages. We specialize in dental implants and implant supported dentures with our top educated and trained specialist, Dr. Justin Craighead.
If you are missing teeth and struggling with loose, uncomfortable dentures, dental implants could change your life! At Tioga Dental & Orthodontics, we are happy to offer start-to-finish dental implants, so you don’t have to go all over town to get the care you need.
A dental implant is a great way to restore your smile if you are missing one or more of your teeth. The implant is a small post that is made of a biocompatible titanium material that Dr. Craighead will surgically place into your jaw. The post will fuse with your jaw and once it heals will become extremely solid and essentially act as the root for your new “fake” tooth. This implant can be used for crowns, bridges, and even dentures! If taken care of properly with good oral hygiene and routine dental checkups, your dental implant could last a lifetime!
For many patients, dental visits call to mind cold, sterile, maybe even hostile environments. The sound of the drill, the smell of cleaning solutions, and dental practitioners who talk over them. Let Tioga Dental & Orthodontics change your mind about dental care. We welcome every patient making them feel at home from the moment they arrive. Warm greetings and attentive care are just the tip of the ice burg. We promise completely stress, pain, and worry-free care from start to finish.
Many patients don’t realize just how much impact technology has on their dental experience, but the right technologies make patient care faster, more comfortable, and more effective. The team of experts at Tioga Dental & Orthodontics is dedicated to utilizing the most innovative dentistry techniques to improve patient comfort and care. From a 3D x-ray using the industry leading i-CAT technology for advanced implant placement to pin-hole gum tissue regeneration techniques and both soft and hard tissue laser services, we are the leading edge of the dental field.
The advancement of technology has made dental implants even more accurate and natural. With 3D imaging software, we can digitally create your jawbone to help guide us when placing the implants. With a detailed map of your facial anatomy that the software provides, it will help us avoid sensitive and critical nerves, roots, and sinuses. This new technology means a better dental experience for the patient by saving you time and the number of visits generally needed for dental implants. Now that’s something to smile about!
