Now viewed as the “gold standard” in tooth replacement, dental implants provide comfort and stability like no other. Replacing missing teeth with implants is a permanent solution that has evolved to support a variety of individual needs, from a single missing tooth to full arch replacement. 

The dental implant is composed of three parts: a biocompatible, titanium post surgically placed in the jaw bone, an abutment (connector piece to which the implant restoration attaches) and the implant restoration, which may be a crown or other prosthetic, such as a bridge or full denture. Treatment plans for replacing missing teeth with implants may include one or more of the following:
  • Dental Implants: Single dental implants may be used to replace one or more missing teeth in various areas of the mouth.
  • All-on-4® Implants: The All-on-4® technique relies on the strategic placement of four implants per arch. Positioned in areas of greatest bone density, these implants firmly support a custom crafted prosthetic that can be utilized the same day of treatment.
  • All-on-6® Implants: Similar to the previous method, All-on-6® implants replace a full arch of missing teeth with stability and convenience. A custom made prosthetic attaches to six implants surgically inserted into the jaw bone where density and volume are greatest.
  • Implant Supported Dentures: Implant supported dentures permanently replace a full arch of missing teeth. Designed to be removable or fixed, this tooth replacement solution relies on either a bar or ball retained mechanism for support.
  • Teeth-in-a-Day: Also known as Immediate Load dental implants, the Teeth-in-a-Day procedure allows for the placement of implant posts and delivery of the restorative prosthesis the same day.

Who Is a Candidate for Dental Implants?
