If you’re worried that you’ve lost too many teeth to benefit from dental implants, think again. We specialize in the revolutionary All-On-4® procedure of full mouth implants.

What Types Of Dental Implants Can I Get?

According to the American Academy of Periodontology, there are many dental implant options available, and we will make the best selection to meet your needs.

  • Single Tooth – This involves having only one tooth replaced.
  • Multiple Tooth – In the case that two, three, or four teeth need to be replaced, more than one titanium screw is inserted into the jaw. The replacement crowns are created and attached to the screws.
  • Full Mouth – This option replaces all of your teeth. Your new smile isn’t going anywhere and looks and feels like natural teeth.
  • Endosteal implants – This is the most common type of dental implant. It’s shaped like a small screw. It goes into your jawbone and holds one or more replacement teeth. 
  • Subperiosteal implants – This type of implant is placed on or above your jawbone. The metal post is put under your gum and sticks through your gum to hold the post in place.

Tooth Replacements That Feel Real

A dental implant is an artificial tooth identical in shape, size, and color to a real tooth. This tooth replacement is made of three parts: a screw, an abutment, and the crown, bridge, or arch – depending on how many teeth you are replacing.

  • A screw made of titanium. It is surgically placed into the jaw in the empty space left by the previous tooth.
  • Abutment: A metal piece attached to the screw; the abutment serves as a connecting device for the crown.
  • Crown, Bridge, Or Arch: The artificial tooth or teeth are custom-made to be identical in look and feel to your existing teeth.

Why Get Dental Implants?

According to the American Dental Association, this tooth replacement option is popular, effective, and blends seamlessly with your other teeth. There are many reasons why someone might choose to get dental implants. 
 
  • Better Appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, and because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
  • More Comfortable. Because they fuse into your jaw, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
  • Easier Eating. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  • Better Self-Esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
  • Better Oral Health. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.
  • More Durable. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
  • More Convenient. Dental implants eliminate the inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

Are Dental Implants Painful?

This procedure requires the use of local anesthesia. While it is surgery, it is no more painful than other dental procedures. Most people have only minor discomfort, but the amount of pain varies from person to person.
