Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are used to replace missing or damaged teeth. They are typically made of titanium or other biocompatible materials and are surgically implanted into the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for a replacement tooth or bridge.

The process of getting a dental implant involves several steps, including a consultation with our oral surgeon, a thorough examination of the teeth and gums, and the placement of the implant into the jawbone. Once the implant is in place, it may take several months for the bone to fuse around the implant and provide a secure anchor for the replacement tooth.

Dental implants offer a number of benefits compared to other tooth replacement options, such as dentures or bridges. They are more durable and long-lasting, and they look and feel more like natural teeth. They also help to preserve the structure of the jawbone and prevent bone loss that can occur when teeth are missing.

Implant-Retained Denture

An implant-retained denture is a type of denture that is secured in place with dental implants. This type of denture is designed to provide increased stability and support, as well as improve the overall fit and function of the denture.

Implant-retained dentures offer a number of advantages over traditional dentures. They are more stable and secure, which can improve speaking and chewing abilities. They also help to preserve the jawbone and prevent bone loss that can occur with traditional dentures.

All-on-4 Dental implants

The All-on-4 dental implant treatment is a technique for replacing a full arch of missing teeth with just four dental implants. This treatment is designed to provide a more cost-effective and efficient solution for individuals who have lost all or most of their teeth.

The All-on-4 treatment involves the placement of four dental implants into the jawbone in a specific arrangement that maximizes support and stability. Once the implants are in place, a custom-made dental bridge or denture is attached to the implants, providing a permanent, secure, and natural-looking replacement for the missing teeth.

The All-on-4 treatment offers several benefits over traditional dentures or bridges. Because it requires only four implants per arch, it can be less invasive and less expensive than other implant-supported options. The treatment can often be completed in a single day, allowing patients to leave the dental office with a new set of teeth in just one appointment.

Dental implants are not suitable for everyone. Candidates for dental implants should have good overall health and adequate bone density in the jaw to support the implant. Smokers and individuals with certain medical conditions may not be eligible for dental implant surgery.

If you are considering dental implants, it is important to consult with your dentist, who can assess your individual needs and help you determine if this treatment option is right for you.
