Melody D.
I was one of Dr. Lee's earliest patients when he started his practice in Lenoir City. He had to tackle a complex issue with a 25 yr/old dental implant that required an onsite dental instraments expert plus a few times in the chair to resolve. I knew then that I found my "forever dentist." Besides working to solve complex issues, Dr. Lee and staff are not only timely & efficient but downright fun to be around.

Since having an injury to my front teeth at approximately 12 years of age, I've undergone so many restorations over my lifetime that I've lost count. Finally, Dr. Lee and his great staff have provided me with the best fitting and by far the best looking bridge I've ever had. I can't thank them enough for the wonderful job they've done for me. I couldn't recommend this dental office more highly.

Always dreaded dental visits Dr. Lee and his staff took excellent care of me. Very caring and concerned with my comfort and the end result of my procedure. I’d give them more stars if I could.
Peggy W.
Dr. Christopher Lee and his staff were welcoming, professional and instilled confidence through explanations and thoroughness. Although Dr. Lee appeared to have a full schedule, based on exam rooms and a waiting room occupied by patients, he worked me into his schedule for a procedure to address a condition (after review of findings on a dental cleaning/X-rays/initial visit) which he felt was serious. The outcome of the procedure confirmed that the condition required prompt attention. I commend him to you without equivocation.
Jennifer Y.
Dr. Lee was extremely patient and focused on keeping me comfortable. I have a small mouth and fillings in the back of my mouth can be a challenge but he worked with me and we got my teeth taken care of. Would definitely recommend.

Revitalize Your Smile with Advanced Implant Solutions

Understanding Adult Tooth Loss

Nobody wants to lose their permanent teeth. However, adult tooth loss can result from various causes, including periodontal (gum) disease, decay, injury, or wear over time. Losing a tooth not only affects your smile but can also lead to more severe issues if left untreated.

Impacts of Tooth Loss on Adults

The loss of a tooth goes beyond just impacting your smile. It can have significant and lasting impacts on your overall oral health and quality of life. Tooth loss can lead to bone loss in the jaw, shifting of surrounding teeth, altered bite, and even changes in facial structure. It can also affect your ability to chew properly and speak clearly, impacting your nutrition and self-esteem.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a durable and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone, acting as a root for an artificial tooth. Over time, the implant integrates with the bone, providing a stable foundation for a replacement tooth or bridge.

Here are some of your treatment options at Lenoir City Dental: 

1. Single Tooth Implants

Ideal for replacing one missing tooth, a single tooth implant consists of a titanium post topped with a custom-made crown, blending seamlessly with your natural teeth.

2. All-on-4 Implants

All-on-4 implants are a solution for patients needing full arch restoration. This technique uses four strategically placed implants to support a full arch of teeth, offering a stable and long-lasting solution.

3. Teeth In A Day

Teeth In A Day, also known as immediate load implants, allow for the placement of a temporary tooth or teeth on the same day as the implant surgery. This option provides a quick solution for those who qualify.

The Dental Implant Treatment Process

If you're in Lenoir City, TN, and considering dental implants, let Lenoir City Dental be your partner in restoring your smile and confidence. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Christopher Lee and explore how dental implants can transform your life.

1. Initial Consultation

Your journey begins with a thorough consultation with Dr. Lee. He will evaluate your oral health, discuss your goals, and determine if dental implants are the right solution for you.

2. Treatment Planning

Using advanced imaging technology, we create a detailed treatment plan. This plan includes the precise location for implant placement, ensuring optimal results.

3. Surgical Procedure

The implant surgery is performed under local anesthesia, and sedation options are available for your comfort. The titanium post is carefully placed into the jawbone, where it will integrate with the bone over time.

4. Healing and Osseointegration

After the surgery, a period of healing is necessary for the implant to osseointegrate, or fuse, with the jawbone. This process is crucial for providing a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

5. Placing the New Tooth

Once the implant has integrated with the bone, a custom-made crown or bridge is placed on top of the implant. This replacement tooth is designed to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth.

6. Follow-Up Care

Regular follow-up visits are essential to monitor the health of your implant and the surrounding tissue. Our team is committed to ensuring the longevity of your dental implants.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Most adults with good overall health and sufficient jawbone to support implants can be candidates. Factors like gum health, general health conditions, and lifestyle choices (like smoking) can impact eligibility. A consultation with Dr. Christopher Lee is necessary to determine your suitability for implants.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are designed to be a long-term solution and can last many years, often decades, with proper care and maintenance. The longevity of implants can be influenced by factors like oral hygiene, lifestyle, and regular dental check-ups.

Are dental implants painful?

The procedure for placing implants involves local anesthesia, and options for sedation are available to ensure comfort. Post-surgical discomfort is typically manageable with prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Caring for dental implants involves regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and routine dental checkups. Special attention should be given to cleaning around the implants to maintain gum health.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants varies depending on the number of implants, the need for additional procedures (like bone grafting), and the type of artificial teeth used. Lenoir City Dental offers financing options, and we provide detailed cost estimates during your consultation.

Can dental implants fail?

While success rates are high, implants can fail due to factors like poor oral hygiene, insufficient bone support, or medical conditions. Choosing a skilled implant dentist like Dr. Christopher Lee and following all aftercare instructions are crucial for success.

How long does the implant process take?

The duration of the implant process varies. After implant placement, a healing period (osseointegration) of several months is typically required before the final crown or bridge is placed. Some patients may be eligible for immediate load implants, which shorten the treatment timeline.

What is the difference between a dental implant and a bridge or denture?

Unlike bridges and dentures, which sit on the gum's surface, dental implants are anchored in the jawbone, providing a more stable and natural-feeling solution. Implants also help preserve the jawbone and facial structure.

Is there any special maintenance required for implants?

Besides regular oral hygiene and dental check-ups, implants do not require special maintenance. However, it's important to avoid habits that could damage the implants, such as chewing hard objects or smoking.
