Implants

Implant Drawing

A dental implant is a small man-made titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to bond with the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implant supported replacement teeth can look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

The benefits of implant treatment include appearance, the enhanced ability to chew and enjoy your food, and offer protection of your remaining teeth and jawbone. Dental implants offer many benefits never before available for the treatment of missing teeth. In short, dental implants will look, feel, and function like your real teeth. Please contact our office if you have further questions or if you qualify for this service.

Single Tooth Implant Drawing

Single Tooth Replacement with Dental Implants

Replacing a single lost tooth with an implant that provides a post to receive a cemented crown, provide a predictable, natural and cost effective method of replacing the tooth without requiring preparation and crowning of the adjacent teeth. Depending on the density of the bone, a temporary crown can be placed immediately.

Implant Supported Bridge Drawing

Partially Edentulous Cemented Bridge on Implants

Implants, strategically placed based on available bone and location of missing teeth, provide a predictable, natural and cost effective method of replacing missing teeth in jaws with remaining healthy dentition. Unilateral bridges are usually cemented but can also be screw-retained.>

Implant Retained Overdenture with 2 implants drawing

Lower Overdenture Retained by 2-4 Implants

For totally edentulous lower jaws, 2-4 implants provide retention of a denture using balls or LocatorTM attachments. The denture rests on the soft tissue, with the implants providing lateral stability as well as retention. This restoration can subsequently be upgraded to total implant supported with more implants being placed in the future.

Implant Arch Bar Overdenture Drawing

Full Arch Bar Overdenture on 4-6 Implants

For totally edentulous jaws, using a minimum of 4 implants in either the lower jaw or upper jaw, implants provide support and retention of a denture using balls, clips other retentive means. By splinting 4-6 implants, placed in the anterior of each jaw, the bar can extend back of the implants to provide a totally implant supported restoration.

Full Arch Screw-in Restoration on 4-8 Implants

For totally edentulous jaws, using a minimum of 5 implants in the lower jaw and 6 implants in the upper jaw, implants provide support for a cemented fixed bridge. In the upper jaw, bone grafting to raise the floor of the maxillary sinus or angulation of the most posterior implants may be required.
