What is a Dental Implant?

Often misunderstood, a dental implant is simply an artificial tooth root that holds a replacement tooth where your natural tooth once was. Made of titanium, a biocompatible material that fuses naturally to your jawbone, a dental implant permanently replaces the root of the dead, damaged or diseased tooth. Since dental implants replace the tooth root, they are uniquely able to:

  • Replace one or more teeth without affecting adjacent teeth
  • Support a bridge without the need for a removable partial denture
  • Support a denture to make it more secure and comfortable

Dental Implant Restoration

If you are having difficulty with your dental implants, it is critical that you have your implant examined right away and that you do not try to self-diagnose the problem. At BayView Dental Arts our professional Naples dental implant team has the tools and experience to make your smile whole again in several easy, reliable steps. We provide among the best dental implants restoration, replacing those that have become loose, discolored or otherwise affected.

They made me feel very comfortable with their willingness to take time to explain everything. I had a root canal in an hour with no pain and very little discomfort afterwards. The office was clean and everyone was nice and helpful. Sara R.

What is the BayView approach?

The artificial tooth that is attached to the implant is fabricated at BayView Dental Arts by one of our prosthodontists, a dentist specifically trained to fabricate and place dental implants in Naples, FL.

Both Dr. Hedgepath and Dr. Scherder utilize CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and manufacturing), to fabricate a custom fit restoration or implant crown and in most cases can be placed in one visit allowing the patient to see the design process and leave with a fully restored and beautiful smile.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update


To all of our dear patients, families and friends, through issuance of Executive Order 20-72, Gov. Ron DeSantis has mandated the prohibition of any medically unnecessary, non-urgent or non-emergency procedure or surgery in the State of Florida. All non-essential elective medical and surgical procedures, including dental procedures, are included. It is the official declaration of a public health emergency, which was filed on March 9 and expires 60 days from then:

May 8.

In compliance with this new law, we are temporary closing our practice until May 8th. We are only seeing patients of record who are in acute pain or have acute infection. As always, will be available for any PATIENT OF RECORD via phone or e-mail to answer any questions and guide you if any dental issue arises

As the world better understands and reacts to the impacts of COVID-19, the health, safety and well-being of our employees and patients remains our top priority.

During these uncertain times, we hope that you and your family stay safe and healthy!
