Implant Procedures

Dental implants are composed of individual components, that when combined, resemble your natural teeth. A titanium implant in your jawbone acts as the root because it naturally fuses with your jaw. The abutment above the gum line holds the crown in place.

Teeth-in-a-Day Technique

Teeth-in-a-Day is one of the latest discoveries in dental implant technology. Most conventional implants require numerous office visits with months of waiting for it to fuse with the jawbone before placing permanent implants. However, with this type of innovative implant, the result is an immediately strong, durable implant. Advantages of this technique include:

• No waiting period for healing
• Less than one-hour procedure
• Replace missing teeth immediately

Your new tooth will function immediately upon implantation without the required six-month waiting period.

All-on-4™ Procedure

The All-on-4™ technique requires only four implants, making it available for instant function. Typically, bone grafting is not required, making it an ideal solution if you have areas of low bone volume or density. Once the implants are set in place, the new denture provides a framework for a temporary set of teeth attached the same day. After the jawbone integrates with the implant, the temporary teeth are replaced with the final set of teeth that are anchored in place permanently. Benefits of this procedure include:

• Long-term, permanent results
• No need for bone grafting in most cases
• Ability to eat and enjoy all foods

This implant technique has a 98.5% success rate after being provided to patients over a 10-year period.
