Dental Implants in Mobile, AL

 

One of the first implant providers on the Gulf Coast

There is no doubt that Mobile, Alabama dentist Byron C. Scott, DMD is the best of the best when it comes to dental implants. As a pioneer in the field, he has the most training and experience of anyone in the area.  Dr. Scott not only has the experience, training and compassion to place the best implants, he also practices 3D surgical planning using surgical guides, photographic digital treatment planning and imaging for the most precise implantation.

Dr. Scott’s care, skill and expertise coupled with his compassion, concern and gentle manner are exemplary attributes that can be immediately discerned when  meeting Dr Scott. He is a man of integrity & a true professional who loves the profession of dentistry and the patients he serves.

Dental implants

Dental implants are tooth-root replacements that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once healed, Dr. Scott can secure beautifully crafted crowns that look and feel just like natural teeth to the screws above the gum-line, completely rehabilitating your smile. You may benefit from dental implants if you are missing all of your teeth and are currently in dentures or about to have full extractions that will lead to dentures.

The second option being single tooth implant restorations  that replace a single missing tooth or several in a row throughout your mouth. Implants allow Dr. Scott to restore the implants individually or in a connected splinted fashion depending on the circumstances..  The benefits of dental implants for denture patients are improved comfort function, health, aesthetics and retention, as well as improved ability to chew, speak, and digest food.

Patients can go paleteless on the upper – no more having the roof of your mouth covered and being limited in your ability to taste. No more use of nasty, sticky adhesives. Dental implants cause remarkably improved facial appearance and contouring, (almost like an instant face lift) as well as improved ability to speak, laugh and sing with confidence – no more worrying about your dentures slipping or falling out.

Mini implants

Our office also uses mini implants in certain cases, where a patient may lack enough bone for conventional size implants, but they do not quite need a Subperiosteal.

All-on-4 implants

If you are exhausted with frustration due to dentures that slip, move or otherwise paralyze you with apprehension, come see Dr. Scott for all on 4 dental implants. Your denture never needs to slip or move again. With all on 4 implants Dr. Scott places root form implants into the jaw (a much less invasive procedure than regular implants as sinus surgery can be avoided) so he can then secure your denture in place. The denture locks to the implants holding it securely so you never have to worry again. One patient was able to do what she loved again after implants by Dr. Scott:

“I love to sing, but I was embarrassed to sing in the church choir because I was afraid my dentures would slip up. Since implants, I even sing solos. I love them.”

Subperiosteal implants

Dr. Scott is also one of the few dentists in the U.S. who offers Subperiosteal Implants.  These implants act as an artificial jaw bone and are a full titanium implant that rests upon the mandible for support and stabilization.  This implant, performed on the lower jaw only, offers hope to those who have been told through the years that they don’t have enough bone on the lower to do implants.

This implant has truly been a miracle for many people who have been long term denture wearers and have severe jawbone atrophy. The implant is constructed from a preoperative CT of the patient. The planning & completion of the patient’s appliance is all completed in advance of the surgery. Therefore, on the day of surgery the patient is able to leave Dr. Scott’s office with the implant in place supporting the beautiful new teeth.  Many of these people, who have literally become dental cripples and shut-ins can immediately begin to smile, chew, speak, laugh, love and truly live again.

Some of our patients have said of their experience:

“I was miserable with my lower dentures. Now I can eat anything. They are as solid and secure as my natural teeth were 25 years ago.”

“Having implants done is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. Dr. Scott and his staff are wonderful, and are so good about helping me keep my implants healthy.”

“Go for it! They are worth far more than I ever dreamed. I’d do them again in a second.”

Dr. Scott is one of the only dentists on the Gulf Coast to surgically treat bone loss. This includes more than 35 years of experience in sinus lifts and bone grafting procedures for ridge and tooth site preservation.
