DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants are the permanent way to replace missing teeth, with a look and feel that’s very close to your natural teeth. Implants are metal posts or frames surgically placed into the bone beneath your gums. The implants fuse with the jawbone providing stable support to artificial teeth, preventing individual teeth, bridges or dentures from shifting in your mouth. They are a high-tech way to replace missing teeth, and offer more stability than traditional bridgework since they do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.

Implant Supported Teeth:

Allow you to speak, smile and eat with confidence.
Are comfortable and stay in place.
Function, look and feel like natural teeth.
Do not need adjacent teeth for support.

ALL ON 4

The term ‘ALL-ON-4’ refers to the replacement of ALL teeth ON FOUR dental implants, which support them. It is a modern technique where the back implants are tilted 45º to provide the required support for total rehabilitation.  The tilting the back of implants helps overcome bone deficiencies often found in the back of the jaws and most often avoids the need for bone grafting.
