All-on-4® dental implants are an excellent option for patients with missing teeth and diminished bone density. The All-on-4® treatment plan involves the placement of four implants at special angles, making the best possible use of your jaw bone tissue. In many cases, these implants can be restored with a temporary denture immediately following placement.
We are pleased to offer Teeth-in-a-Day, or immediate-load dental implants. Teeth-in-a-Day offers the same benefits as traditional implants, but without the waiting time between placement of the implants and attachment of the restoration. Instead, the implant and the restoration are placed on the same day, and you can leave our office with a functional new smile.
Dental implants are a great restorative option that offers a number of benefits for patients with missing teeth. They are the only restorative option that can prevent atrophy of the jaw bone following tooth loss. They also hold dentures and other restorations firmly in place, allowing users to enjoy foods like rare steaks and crisp apples without worrying that their restorations will shift.
Dental implants are just the first important step in rebuilding a compromised smile. The restoration can be made of dental porcelain or zirconia, both of which offer natural-looking results. A dental lab will fabricate your dental crown, bridge, or denture out of the material of your choice. The restoration will be milled to precise specifications, ensuring a proper fit and beautiful aesthetic outcome.
Implant-supported dentures are a treatment option for patients with multiple missing teeth. The implants are placed directly into the jawbone, which protects against future bone loss and provides a stable base for the dentures. The dentures can replace a few or all of your teeth, and they will stay securely in place as you speak, chew, and smile.
Today, patients missing some or all of their teeth can choose either traditional or implant-supported dentures. It is important for patients to understand that implant-supported dentures are the only option that can prevent jaw bone atrophy, and provide a level of support for dentures that allows you to laugh, smile, speak, and enjoy all the foods you love without worrying that your dentures will shift out of place.
For patients missing a single tooth, we recommend a dental implant restored with a crown. Implants are the only restorative solution that can prevent the loss of jaw bone tissue, and provide the absolute best level of support. The crown is custom-fabricated to complement your smile, and will be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Implant-supported restorations are highly versatile. If you are missing multiple teeth, we can provide an implant-supported bridge, sometimes called a partial denture. Depending on your needs, we can create a custom implant-supported bridge that completes your smile, restores your ability to chew and smile with confidence, and preserves the integrity of the jaw.
