Dental Implants

Dental implants provide a permanent replacement option for missing teeth. With a dental implant, replacement teeth look, feel, and function like natural teeth. You can consume even hard-to-eat foods with ease, and your mouth and jawline maintain their natural contours.

Dental implants are essentially artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted in the jawbone where teeth are missing. These artificial roots can hold crowns, bridges, or dentures in place. The bone around the implants mechanically and biologically binds to the implant surface, creating a strong foundation.

Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. While the surgeons at The Center for Oral Maxillofacial Surgery and Dental Implants perform the extractions, definitive implant surgery, and any required bone grafting, the restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

At The Center for Oral Maxillofacial Surgery and Dental Implants, we are using the most up-to-date imaging technology and surgical techniques to ensure the highest level of care for your dental implant treatment. All of our surgeons have extensive experience with dental implant surgery and we work hard to achieve the highest quality outcomes for all of our patients. Read more about Dental Implants

What is Bone Grafting?

Following the loss of teeth, the supporting jawbone associated with these teeth atrophies and resorbs. This can unfortunately result in insufficient bone quantity and quality for the support of dental implants. Without correction of this deficiency, some patients may not be candidates for dental implants. Fortunately, bone grafting is now available to restore the jawbone and to provide a solid foundation for dental implants. Bone grafting is a surgical procedure, whereby your surgeon will help to regenerate lost bone to allow for normal function and placement of dental implants. Read more about Bone Grafting

All-on-4® (Full Mouth Rehabilitation)

The All-on-4® Concept is a spectrum of dental implant procedures designed to replace a full arch of teeth, top or bottom, in a single surgery. Each arch typically requires four to six implants, and a temporary prosthesis is secured in place at the same appointment. Patients are able to avoid any time without teeth or time spent using a removable denture. Read more about All-on-4®
