Dental Implants Including All On 4 Dental Implants (“Teeth in a Day”) have become one of the most popular, and predictable procedures for tooth replacement offered in dentistry. Dental Implants have been proven to be safe and successful for long term replacement of a single missing tooth or multiple teeth.
Dental implants are an artificial tooth root (usually made of titanium) that is placed into your jaw to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth.
What can dental implants do? Dental implants can replace a single tooth, be support for a dental bridge, or in a dental implant supported denture (making it more comfortable and secure). Dental implants are a major part of cosmetic dentistry today.
Only you and your dentist should know you have dental implants.
All On 4 Dental Implants
"Teeth In A Day"
We are also proud to offer the All On 4 Dental Implants system. A revolutionary, new dental procedure for restoring teeth in a day.The All on 4 Dental Implants procedure uses four dental implants per arch (upper or lower).
The dental implants in the back are placed on an angle to take maximum advantage of the existing bone structure. Special dental implants were developed that could support the immediate fitting of replacement teeth. This treatment is attractive to those with loose dentures or those in need of full upper and/or lower restorations.
With the All-on-4 dental implants procedure, qualified patients receive just four dental implants and a full set of new upper or lower replacement teeth in just one appointment. This usually able to be done without dental bone grafts.
The real attraction to the all on 4 dental implants procedure is how quickly permanent dental implants can be placed. This allows patients the ability to leave the same day with a denture that is fixed in place and stabilized by the dental implants.
A denture that is supported by dental implants is called an overdenture. A traditional removable denture rests directly on the gums, and is not supported by dental implants. This is because the denture sits over the dental implants.
The dental implants give support and stability to the denture.
A dental implant supported denture is recommended when a person is missing all the teeth in the jaw. The patient needs to have enough bone in the jaw to support the dental implants.
The denture is able to stay in place using special attachments that allow the denture to “snap” into place over the dental implants.
Dental Implants =
Dental Implants have over a 98% success rate for long term success. Dental Implants are an artificial tooth root that a dentist, periodontist, or oral surgeon inserts into your jawbone to hold a replacement tooth or teeth(bridge).
Dental implants are the perfect option for people with good oral health maintenance who are missing one tooth or multiple teeth due to periodontal disease, via trauma, or some other reason.
Dental Implants use the most modern materials that dentistry has to offer. Years and years of research have gone into the Dental Implants in use today. Dental implants are much more tooth friendly than traditional bridgework.
Dental implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support nor do the neighboring teeth need to be prepared to be part of the bridgework. With optimal conditions and in the hands of a skilled dentist, dental implants can look as natural as your own teeth.
Only you and your dentist would ever know you even have one. This gives patients the utmost in self confidence giving them the ability to broadly smile as well as eat as they choose.
