All-on-4 Dental Implants
If you have lost all of your teeth or have no healthy teeth left, All-on-4 may be the smile restoration solution that’s best for you. All-on-4 is a way to restore the natural look and function of your teeth by using four strategically positioned dental implants as the foundation. They are not removable, giving you a long-lasting solution for your missing teeth. While every patient and situation is different, many people who undergo this procedure can expect to have a beautiful and functional smile the same day. You will be able to smile, eat, and chew fairly normally right after your procedure.
Missing teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile, but they also contribute to jaw bone loss if not replaced. When this happens, we offer bone grafting, a surgical procedure that replaces the missing bone that has been lost following the removal or loss of an adult tooth. This will help stimulate the re-growth of your jawbone. We usually offer bone grafting as a preliminary treatment before tooth replacement using dental implants.
If you have a gummy smile, when your gums often cover a larger portion of your teeth than desired or suffer from gum disease, we have a solution. Through crown lengthening, we will remove the excess gum tissue to expose more of your tooth’s surface. This can help you achieve an aesthetically pleasing smile and restore the health of your teeth.
Missing teeth? Then it’s time to consider dental implants. This is a long-lasting, natural-looking solution for your missing teeth. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from titanium and are surgically anchored into the jawbone. The implant’s screw-like shape helps it stay in place by providing more surface area for your bone to grow into. Replacement teeth, referred to as crowns, are then permanently secured to these metal implants. They can improve your appearance, boost your self-confidence, and allow you to speak with greater clarity than you would with missing teeth.
Dental Implants – Mini
If you have lost all of your teeth on your upper jaw, lower jaw, or both, mini dental implants are one of the more affordable options you have for replacing your teeth and restoring your smile. Unlike regular dental implants where there is one implant for each new tooth, we offer mini dental implants to provide a foundation for dentures to be placed at once. Implant-supported dentures clip onto the implants for a very secure fit allowing you to start reintroducing tougher foods back into your diet, which is great for both your quality of life and nutrition.
The gum lift procedure involves removing a small amount of gum tissue where your gums meet your teeth. This is usually only done on your top front teeth because they are visible when you smile and speak. A gum lift corrects a gummy smile by removing the excess gum tissues, exposing more of your tooth’s surface. Through a gum lift, we can help you achieve a beautiful smile you can proudly show off.
If you have lost more than one tooth, an implant-supported bridge offers you a secure and long-lasting solution. A missing tooth can cause more trouble than just an unsightly gap in your smile. Tooth loss can cause your remaining teeth to shift around the gap, changing the alignment of your smile and even causing changes in your facial aesthetics. With an implant bridge, you can return the majority of your chewing function so you can eat what you want again. Using implants to secure the bridge means that no healthy teeth need to be ground down to replace a missing tooth.
Implant-supported dentures are a more long-lasting and secure option for replacing your teeth and restoring your smile. They combine the best parts of dental implants and dentures, providing a foundation for many teeth to be placed at once. Unlike traditional dentures that are held on with suction or adhesive, implant-supported dentures clip onto the implants for a very secure fit. This added stability allows you to start reintroducing tougher foods back into your diet, which is great for both your quality of life and nutrition.
Our goal is to help you live a healthy life with all of your natural teeth. However, there are times when we cannot save your natural teeth and extraction is essential for your oral health. This might be because of crowding, disease, or trauma. No matter the reason, we use a conservative approach with all tooth extractions, prioritizing your comfort at all times.
