Your Dental Implant Options

Full Arch Dental Implants

Our implant specialist is an expert in our featured All-On-Four® to Six dental implant protocol that provides patients a full set of upper and lower replacement teeth in one day. A permanent prosthesis is anchored by four to six dental implants, replacing the need for temporary alternatives like dentures.

Single Dental Implants

A dental implant is composed of three components: post, abutment, and restoration. The post is placed directly into the jawbone, mimicking the function of a tooth’s root providing stability and support to the surrounding bone. The abutment extends from the post beyond the gumline as a connection for your new tooth restoration. The result is the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.

Implant Supported Dentures

Don’t suffer from ill-fitting dentures any longer! Implant supported dentures provide the stability of implants and the coverage of dentures without the annoyance of slippage, clacking, or loss of taste. We offer same-day options and ensure all our restorations look natural by taking factors such as skin tone and facial structure into consideration during your restoration design.

Experience Makes A Difference

Throughout the years, our team of experts has placed thousands of dental implants with an incredible amount of long-lasting success. Dental implants can fail and making sure that the procedure is done the right way the first time is the best way to ensure that you are getting the most out of your investment. Dr. Shigley and his teams are the dental implant experts in Columbia, SC and have the years of experience necessary to do the job right regardless of circumstance.

Common Question We’re Asked About Dental Implants


What Is A Dental Implant?

A dental implant is made up of three parts—a titanium or ceramic post, an abutment, and a restoration. Built to function like natural tooth roots, dental implants provide bone support and a stable foundation for a single dental crown, a dental bridge, a denture, or a full arch prosthesis.


Who Is A Candidate For Dental Implants?

Many patients are candidates for dental implants already or can qualify after receiving preparatory treatments like bone grafting and tooth extractions. Candidacy is more accurately determined after a comprehensive consultation and evaluation with an implant dentist.


How Much Does Treatment Cost?

The cost of dental implants is based on many factors, including how many teeth are missing and for how long, the types of materials used, and what additional procedures are needed. Our team can help you apply for dental financing and will file insurance claims on your behalf to help you afford treatment.


How Long Is The Treatment Process?

Dental implant treatment can range from a few months to over a year. In many cases, implants can be surgically placed soon after the consultation and treatment plan are complete. For patients needing bone grafting, this may be a separate procedure requiring several months of healing before dental implant surgery. After dental implants are placed, healing can take 3+ months before optimal integration is achieved and a final restoration can be permanently attached. In many cases, patients can wear a temporary restoration during healing.


How Long Can I Expect Dental Implants To Last?

Dental implants are designed to last for decades and have the potential to last for the rest of your life. Surgical technology and clinical experience, along with your health habits, ultimately affect the longevity of your implants. Choosing an experienced implant team like ours at Smile Again Dental Implant Center provides more precise and accurate surgery that better guarantees the long-term success of your treatment.
