Dental Implants change lives.
Let us show you how!

Single Tooth Implant

There is no better, long-lasting option to restoring a missing tooth than a single tooth implant implant fitted with a crown.

Traditional replacement of a single tooth using a dental implant is often completed over multiple visits:

Consultation and planning, including initial exam, imaging of your teeth, questions about your dental and medical history, and discussion of your treatment options.

Placement of the dental implant, a substitute for the missing natural tooth root, either with or without a built-in abutment (a connector placed on, or built into, the top of the implant) that will attach to the replacement tooth. A temporary tooth can be placed while the dental implant integrates with your natural bone to form a strong foundation for your replacement tooth. Most people return to work the next day.

Placement of the abutment, if one wasn’t placed during the prior visit.

Placement of a custom-made crown, or replacement tooth.

Multi Tooth Implant

Occasionally a patient is missing more than one tooth, but still has healthy gums and surrounding teeth. In this case, a multiple implant can be the best solution. Fixtures are implanted and the crown is attached, leaving the natural teeth around them intact. Implant-supported bridges replace teeth without support from adjacent natural teeth. Other common treatments for the loss of several teeth, such as fixed bridges or removable partial dentures, are dependent on support from adjacent teeth.

Implant-supported bridges replace some of your tooth roots, leaving your bone better preserved. With a fixed bridge or removable partial denture, the bone that previously surrounded the tooth root may begin to resorb (deteriorate). Gums and bone can recede around a fixed bridge or removable partial denture, leaving a visible defect. In addition, removable partial dentures can move around in the mouth and reduce your ability to eat certain foods.

Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact. In the long term, implants are esthetic, functional and comfortable.

Full Arch Implant

Traditional replacement of a complete set of upper or lower teeth (arch) using Express All-on-4 is completed over multiple visits, and normally requires:

Consultation and planning, including initial exam, imaging of your teeth, questions about your dental and medical history, and discussion of your treatment options.

Placement of the dental implants that will be used to support your replacement teeth. Temporary teeth may be placed while the dental implant integrates with your natural bone to form a strong foundation for your replacement tooth. Stem cell therapy can make this procedure more predictable. Most people return to work the next day, and any discomfort can typically be treated with commonly used pain medication.

Placement of the abutments, or connectors placed on or built into the top of the implant, help connect your replacement teeth. Additional components may be needed to support chewing at this time (snap-fit attachments).

Placement of custom-made individual replacement teeth or, most often, an implant-supported fixed bridge or implant-supported overdenture.
