Imagine Your Smile (651-227-2427), a prosthodontic specialist dental practice led by Dr. Mark W. Wilhelm, is now offering same-day dental implants and implant-retained and implant-supported dentures for patients in Woodbury.
In one appointment, patients can now receive permanent replacements for missing, broken, painful, or failing teeth at Imagine Your Smile. The new ‘teeth-in-a-day’ service extends from single implants to full arch restorations.
Following the announcement, the clinic’s prosthodontist specialist Dr. Mark W. Wilhelm, utilizes the latest in Guided Smile and Digital Implant technology for fast and accurate implant placement and optimized natural-looking results. The procedure’s speed and efficiency eliminate waiting time following natural tooth removal and promotes fast recovery.
The dental practice offers various types of implants depending on the patients’ restorative needs. To replace a single tooth, Dr. Wilhelm will place one titanium implant with high bone-contact biocompatibility into the patient’s jawbone. The procedure is completed with a custom-made crown that blends seamlessly with the patient’s existing teeth.
For patients with multiple missing teeth due to trauma, gum disease, or decay, the clinic offers all-on-4 and all-on-6 implant options. These treatments replace full upper or lower dental arches with bridges attached to strategically placed implants.
As the clinic notes, there are several reasons not to get multiple single implants and instead opt for an all-on-x procedure. Since fewer implants are placed, the full arch replacement is less invasive than traditional techniques. In addition, all-on-x implants are angled for optimum strength and durability and are typically more compatible with areas of lower bone density.

For patients better suited to dentures, the practice provides implant-retained and implant-supported options. Supported by 2-4 dental implants, these types of dentures do not rely on suction to stay in place and help prevent bone loss by mimicking natural tooth roots.
Imagine Your Smile was founded by Dr. Mark W. Wilhelm DMD, MSD in 1990. The specialist prosthodontist provides a range of advanced tooth replacement services to improve both dental aesthetics and function.
