WHAT IS DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Permanent solution for tooth loss
Dental implants are the modern day answer for one of more missing teeth. Once placed they become permanently fused to the bone to act as a sturdy base for one or more crowns. For the implementation to achieve success a careful analysis of the bone structure must be made. To evaluate the bone we recommend a cone beam CBCT scan.

Types of dental implants

- Multiple teeth or Full mouth rehabilitation: we pursue the latest in implant technology to help those who have multiple missing teeth. An implant-supported bridge is a group of teeth secured to dental implants so the prosthetic cannot be removed by the user. They are similar to conventional bridges, except that the prosthesis is supported and retained by one or more implants instead of natural teeth. A fixed bridge may replace as few as two teeth and may extend to replace an entire arch.
- All on 4 implants: It refers to all teeth being supported on four implants in one arch for total rehabilitation of the toothless patient, or for patients with badly broken down teeth or compromised teeth due to gum disease.
- Implant-supported overdenture: A removable implant-supported denture is a removable prosthesis that replaces teeth, using implants to improve support, retention, and stability. They are most commonly complete dentures.
