Implants

Endosteal Implants: The Best Option for Dental Implants

About Endosteal Implants:

Endosteal implants are placed in the jawbone, which is just like a natural tooth root and can be used for a variety of purposes. Typically shaped like small screws, cylinders or plates, they are the most commonly used type of implant.

Benefits of Endosteal Implants:

  • Each implant can hold one or more prosthetic teeth
  • Built to last longer compared to tooth supported dental bridges
  • Restores a tooth to its natural form, shape and color
  • Maintains overall oral health, including that of surrounding teeth

All-on-4

The Modern Solution for Missing Teeth

An Efficient Treatment Option

All-on-4 Dental Implants:
  • Replace missing teeth with full dental bridge supported by only four dental implants
  • Reduce treatment time compared to other dental solutions for missing teeth
  • Provide greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery
  • Temporarily provisional teeth can typically be placed on the day of first treatment, with final bridge placement only a few weeks later
Advantages of All-on-4 Dental Implants:
  • Cost effective solution. Fewer implants are required, which signifigantly lowers cost of full teeth replacement
  • Reduces need for bone grafting. Special tilting of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch
  • Faster treatment and healing time. Your replacement arch can be attached to your implants immediately after insertion
  • Flexible options. You can choose a final prosthetic solution that is best for you, such as a fixed option or removable option
  • Scientifically-proven and documented. Good clinical outcomes from studies in which four implants have been inserted to support a full arch

  • Return to normal life more quickly with same-day dental implants (as opposed to 2 to 7 months for typical dental implants)
  • Immediate improved appearance from natural look of dental implants
  • Improved ability to eat correctly and speak without impairment
  • Dental implants can help stop bone loss in the jaw and protect adjacent teeth
  • Dental implants are most frequently the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth
  • If properly cared for, Teeth-in-a-Day can last a lifetime
