Dental Implant Restorations
Single Tooth Dental Implants
Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth and help maintain the existing bone by replacing the roots of the teeth. Dental implants are small anchors made of a biocompatible metal called titanium that are placed in the jawbone.
Implant Supported Bridges
An implant supported bridge is a restorative solution for spaces where three or more adjacent teeth are missing. This restoration typically requires two implants to support the porcelain bridge.
Implant Supported Dentures
For patients who are missing many or all of their teeth, implant supported dentures may be an alternative to traditional dentures. This solution requires the placement of two or more implants. In order to replace a full arch denture, a minimum of four implants is generally recommended. Eligibility for this solution is dependent upon a number of factors, with jawbone density being one of the most significant determining factors.
Full Arch with Only Four Implants
This procedure is a unique implant solution that allows patients with a completely edentulous (toothless) upper or lower arch to replace all of the teeth in that arch using only four implants as anchors.
Guided Implant Placement
With this technique, specialized cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is used to create custom surgical guides. These guides direct the exact location, angle, and depth of each implant placement. The use of the guide increases the accuracy, efficiency, safety, and predictability of the procedure
