What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants consist of a small titanium post and a crown or other fixture attached to the top of the post.

Though the way dental implant surgery is performed can vary depending on the kind of implant the patient needs, the surgery consists of the roots of a patient’s teeth being replaced with screw-like posts made from metal that are then implanted in the jawbone.

The post acts similarly to the roots of natural teeth, and the crown provides a natural look. The jawbone grows naturally around the post to secure it in place and increases the stability of the implant.

Technology Used

Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is used when performing a dental implant procedure. A dental cone beam is a special type of x-ray equipment that is used when regular dental x-rays aren’t sufficient.

It produces 3D images of your soft tissue, nerve pathways, teeth, and bone. A dental cone beam is useful for implant procedures because:

  • It makes it easier for dentists to measure jawbone spacing
  • It reduces the risk of misaligned implants, therefore, ensuring the longevity of the implants
  • It requires little to no preparation

Implant Retained Dentures/All-on-4

All-on-4 dentures, also called implant retained dentures, are a type of replacement for your natural teeth and can fix issues such as problems chewing your food, inability to speak clearly, and remaining teeth shifting uncomfortably in your mouth.

They can replace both upper and lower teeth and are both more convenient and more comfortable than traditional dentures. They feature multiple anchor points which help keep your mouth’s supportive structures engaged.

They look like your natural teeth and make your smile look more healthy and complete.
