Implant Restoration Services in Lincoln, NE
Dental restorations allow patients to replace missing or broken teeth. Although many restorative options exist, one of the best ways to regain a complete smile is implant dentistry.
Timothy Calkins, DDS is a general dentist who restores dental implants for eligible patients. You'll receive top-notch dentistry at Calkins Family Dentistry in Lincoln, NE.
Are you a candidate for Implants?
Because receiving dental implants requires routine oral surgery, not all patients are good candidates for this procedure. A thorough dental and health history will allow us to best assess any limitations to treatment we may have and help to reveal the best restorative course in your specific case.
To find out if you are a candidate for implant restorations, contact our office. We at Calkins Family Dentistry want to help you achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. When you call us about implant dentistry, we’ll set up a consultation to assess whether a dental implant restoration is the best match for your dental wants and needs.
Once Dr. Calkins determines that you are a good candidate, he’ll discuss the treatment plan with you to ensure that you are comfortable with the procedure.
What Are the Steps in the Implant Procedure?
The basic steps to receive implant restoration follow the order below:
- Consultation with Dr. Calkins regarding your overall health and ability to heal from the surgery.
- Receive implant surgery involving gum and bone preparation and placement of the implant.
- Have the artificial tooth or dental crown placed.
Although some patients may receive their new crown shortly after the implant, others need time to heal and allow the new implant to integrate fully with their own bone and tissue. This process may take several months, in which case you’ll be provided with a temporary restoration.

“I've been using Dr. Calkins' services for about 15 years. He has a very pleasant demeanor, he does pain-free work, and his staff does a good job of squeezing me in for emergencies. Ultimately, I'd recommend his services.”
“I have been a patient of Dr. Calkins for over 20 years. All of my kids have gone to him since they were toddlers. Very conservative in his approach, never tries to do an expensive treatment if it isn't necessary. Great at giving numbing shots, can't even feel the needle.”
