Dental Implant Options
Dental implants can be used in solutions for replacing single or multiple missing teeth. Many people who consider implants have removable, conventional dentures for lower and upper jaws, or have removable bridges. These people experience a significant improvement in their ability to chew food comfortably after their dental implant treatment.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Dental implants can be placed in either the upper or lower jaws. Due to the biocompatible properties of titanium, a dental implant fuses with the bone and becomes a good anchor for the replacement tooth.
The Dental Implants Consists of:
- Implant: A surgically placed into titanium screw and permanently attaches to your jaw
- Abutment: Connects the implant the replacement tooth
- Crown : The replacement tooth
Dental implant-supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. This means that you can eat and drink whatever you choose. But most importantly, dental implants improve quality of life in a very concrete way. People who have felt embarrassed and worried because of their tooth problems are often overwhelmed by what new permanent teeth can do for their self-esteem.

All on 4
All on 4 was developed as a way to best restore the full arches of the upper and lower jaws. This technique provides our patients with a non-removable dental arch that is secured by as little as four dental implants – all on the same day. Because only four implants are used in the procedure, the entire process is much less invasive and involves less surgical time than previous treatments.
All on Four is the perfect option for patients who have or need dentures or need complete restorations on the upper or lower teeth.

Implant Supported Bridges
When several teeth in a row are missing, they can be replaced by a bridge anchored to implants. An implant is not needed for each tooth being replaced. Three or four teeth can be replaced with just two dental implants for support. This is less expensive than placing an individual implant for each tooth being replaced. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported bridges replace teeth without support from adjacent natural teeth.
In the long term, implants look better, function better and are more comfortable.
