About the Dental Implant Procedure

Before we begin the implant process, we use 3D cone beam imaging to precisely plan your treatment and see if there is enough bone to support the implant. It’s not uncommon for patients with missing teeth to have bone loss around the area. If that is true for you, we can perform a bone grafting procedure to strengthen the jawbone for implant placement at a later date.

Once your jawbone has been determined as healthy and strong, we’ll surgically place the titanium implant(s) into position and give it time to heal. Once all of your dental implants have properly fused with your bone, we’ll top them with either a dental crown, implant-supported bridge, or denture depending on your specific dental needs.

Single Tooth Implant

A single implant is topped with a dental crown using an abutment (connector). Single tooth implants can replace a missing tooth or teeth without relying on the surrounding teeth for support.

Implant-Supported Bridge

An implant-supported bridge can replace three or more teeth in a row. The bridge connects to the implants and has custom-made false teeth attached to it that fit perfectly into the spaces left behind from your missing teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures & Mini Implants

Implant-supported dentures are fixed to the gums with mini implants. The mini implants are placed into the jaw, similar to regular implants, and attach to the underside of the denture to hold it into place. Implant-supported dentures are a reliable alternative for patients suffering from ill-fitting traditional dentures.

All-On-4® Implants

The All-On-4® treatment concept has led the way in edentulous treatment ever since it was pioneered almost 20 years ago. This is a cost-efficient, graftless solution that provides you with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery.
