Repair Your Smile with Dental Implants

Frequent feelings of humiliation and self-consciousness often accompany missing teeth, and inflammatory bacteria in the empty sockets can pose significant risks to oral and overall health. The longer teeth are missing, the higher the risk of physical and oral diseases caused by these bacteria settling in soft tissues.

Fortunately, even in severe cases, dental implants offer a successful solution, restoring teeth to 99% of their pre-loss strength, improving oral health, and providing a stunning, natural-looking smile. At Commonwealth Prosthodontics, our prosthodontists, Drs. David Schleider and Catherine Dallow are dedicated to enhancing your quality of life with our transformative dental implant restoration procedures, ensuring you can confidently wear your revitalized smile for years.

Why Dental Implant Treatment Experience Matters

What Are Dental Implants?

For decades, this modern tooth replacement system has been the professional choice to restore your oral health, smile esthetics and dental function. Dental implants are composed of three parts: a post, an abutment, and a restoration. These three components replicate the function of natural teeth, including the root. Dental implants are placed in your jawbone, where they fuse naturally to secure a superior bond. This permanent solution requires the skill of an implant professional and a suite of modern surgical technology to ensure a predictable outcome. At Commonwealth Prosthodontics, we complete dental implant cases routinely, and we are ready to become your source for dental implants in Richmond, VA.

Customized Options Available

Dental implants – whether a single implant, a bridge or full mouth dental implants – are manufactured teeth, made especially to permanently replace one or more missing natural teeth in a row. Dental implants can also be used to increase the stability of a modified denture, which snaps securely to the implants placed into the jawbone. For patients in need of a completely new smile, dental implants can permanently support a full, fixed arch of prosthetic teeth. Dental implants in Richmond, VA are a permanent solution that restores complete functionality to your teeth, including the ability to eat and speak comfortably.

Our Dental Implant Process


Consultation & Planning

As with any of our procedures, we begin with a comprehensive consultation. We prioritize understanding your medical history, dental concerns, and smile aspirations. Our skilled team conducts a thorough examination, utilizing advanced digital diagnostics to assess the current state of your oral health.

From this detailed assessment, we create a personalized treatment plan to guide you from your current dental situation to achieving your desired smile. In our dedicated photography room, we capture before photos, serving as a visual foundation for our smile design process, ensuring your new smile is not just a transformation but a personalized work of art that’s functional and long-lasting.


Implant Procedure

On the day of your procedure, we will administer your preferred sedation to ensure a relaxed and comfortable experience. We’ll make minimal incisions to your jawbone and strategically place 4-6 dental implants at a 45-degree angle to ensure stability and support.

Following implant placement, we attach an abutment and a temporary prosthesis, ensuring you never have to be without your renewed smile. This process prioritizes your comfort during the procedure and establishes a seamless and efficient path to your long-term smile transformation.


Healing & Final Prosthesis

Following your implant placement, you’ll undergo a 4–6-month healing period, during which the implants fuse with your jawbone through osseointegration. This crucial phase ensures the stability and longevity of your new smile. Once the healing is complete, we’ll place your hand-crafted final prosthesis, tailored to perfection, for you to enjoy for decades. Say goodbye to dietary restrictions, incomplete smiles, and tooth embarrassment – with proper care and regular checkups, your dental implants can last a lifetime, providing enduring confidence and optimal oral function.
