Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is often the treatment of choice and is also one of the most conservative treatments for tooth replacement.
Dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural that can last a lifetime. Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture. Dental Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
Implants are biocompatible posts that are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They are physically and biologically designed to attach to your jaw bone and become the foundation for a natural looking restoration. Your new tooth or teeth will have excellent stability and strength, and will look and feel like your natural teeth.
Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. Dental implant patients enjoy restored function, which allows a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods and allows improvement in speech, while preventing teeth from shifting in the mouth.
The All-on-4® treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by only four dental implants. Overall treatment time and cost is reduced because less implants are needed. The All-on-4® treatment concept solution also guarantees greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume.
A temporary set of teeth can be placed on the same day. The temporary teeth allow you to live your normal life immediately after surgery. After a short healing period, Dr. Cannilla will place the final bridge. All-On-4® Treatment is the perfect choice when you need or want a full mouth permanent option.
