A dental implant is a titanium metal post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone beneath the gum to act as a tooth root. Prosthetic teeth are then attached to the implant. Because titanium has the ability to fuse to the jawbone becoming a natural part of the mouth, they provide superior support for prosthetic teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants will never shift or slip allowing these replacement teeth to feel more natural than traditional dentures or bridges.
At Pro Dental Care, we offer a variety of implant options.
Endosteal Implants: These implants are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone. Once healed, a post is connected during a second surgery. An artificial tooth (or teeth) will be attached to the post either individually or grouped on a denture or bridge.
Once the titanium implants are inserted into the jawbone, a set of fixed dentures are permanently secured. Once applied, these dentures are not removable.
The revolutionary All-On-4 concept uses only four precisely placed implants are per arch to replace a full arch teeth. This system is cost-efficient and provides patients with a full-arch of teeth on the day of surgery!
