A gap in your smile can often mean a gap in confidence and a reduction in chewing function. Thankfully, with today’s dentistry techniques, a missing tooth is easily replaced with a dental implant. Now, with computerized guided implants, your smile can be restored without invasive surgery.
Contact our office today to schedule a 30 minute consultation with one of our Trained Implant Dentists to discuss your specific treatment options.
The process is simple and provides you with a lasting alternative to dentures or bridgework. Our dentist insert a titanium dental implant (screw) where your missing tooth or teeth are to act as a root for your new tooth. Typically 4-6 months after your implant has been placed, a lab fabricated tooth (crown, bridge or denture) will be placed on top of your implant(s) and fill in your missing space.
If you have sufficient bone mass required to receive dental implants, they can be an essential part of maintaining your gum line, jawbone and facial structure, which over time will lose their shape from a missing tooth or teeth. They’re a superior alternative to dentures or bridges because of this reason.
If you are missing all of your teeth you can consider an “All on 4” or “Teeth in a Day” procedure– an effective option for patients who dislike loose and bulky dentures.
The unique Advantages of All on 4 or Teeth in a Day treatment concept allows for greater stability in the bone, permanent fixed teeth that are not removable (like your natural teeth) and reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume.
Advantages of All on 4 or Teeth in a Day
- A cost effective solution. Only four to six implants are required for each jaw. With fewer implants, the cost is lowered
- Reduced need for bone grafting. The special tilting of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced are, typically making bone grafting unnecessary.
- Faster treatment and healing time. Your replacement arch can be attached to your implants immediately after insertion. There is no need to wait for healing time between surgery and tooth replacement
- Scientifically proven and documented. The All-on-4 treatment concept is supported by good clinical outcomes from studies in which four implants have been inserted to support a full replacement arch. The tilting of implants has been used in clinical practice for over a decade with favorable results.
