No longer are bridges and crowns the only options for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants can be an ideal alternative. Dental implants offer great stability and convenience for treating single tooth extractions due to disease or damage. The dental implant is fused to the bone and a crown is cemented to the implant, resulting in a natural looking smile and full oral function.
A Dental Implant is a surgical procedure where a strong metallic post is installed in the place of the root of the tooth. This post is designed to be durable and permanent and is the foundation for the new tooth implant. On top of the post is attached an Abutment or a post extension, which connects the post to the visible crown. Finally a custom made crown is fitted on top of the Abutment. This custom made crown is designed to look and feel like your other natural teeth.
The result of the procedure is a natural, durable tooth replacement meant to last a lifetime.
All on 4 Dental Implants are used to replace a larger section or row of teeth. The procedure differs from standard implants where, instead of installing a dental implant for each individual tooth, four posts are installed in the jawbone and a permanent denture is fitted for a seamless look across your entire mouth.
