What are Dental Implants?

illustration of dental implantsDental implants use titanium posts that can replace a missing tooth root. They provide a permanent solution to tooth loss as they are the only restoration option that becomes part of your jaw. Implants typically consist of three parts; the titanium post, the abutment, and the restoration. Our team can completely replace missing teeth from root to crown with dental implants.

How Many Teeth Can Dental Implants Replace?

At Atascadero Hills Dental, we proudly provide dentures, crowns, and bridges supported by dental implants. Each solution is crafted from safe and natural looking materials, designed to withstand many years of wear.

With our implant-supported restorations, our team can:

  • Replace a single missing tooth with a crown supported by one implant
  • Restore several teeth in a row with a bridge supported by two dental implants
  • Replace multiple teeth missing throughout the smile with partial dentures
  • Restore a full arch with complete dentures supported by four to eight implants

What is All-On-4 Implant Treatment?

all on four implantsAll-On-4 is a treatment technique referring to "all" teeth supported "on four" implants. We may recommend this treatment if you've lost most or all of your teeth and your jawbone volume is not high enough for conventional implant procedures. With this method, our specialist strategically places only four dental implants to support your new dentures. You can have implant-supported dentures on the lower or upper jaws to provide restorations with lasting security.

Why Choose All-On-4 Implants for My Dentures?

The All-On-4 method provides optimal stabilization for implant-supported dentures. Traditional dentures use natural suction or adhesives to say in place. Over time, these options can lead to friction, wear, and irritation.

With All-On-4, your implants are carefully placed and secured directly into your jaw, providing a lasting foundation for your dentures. Benefits of your secure dentures include improved quality of life through proper speaking, chewing, aesthetics, and jawbone health. The result is a restored smile that looks and feels completely natural.

Can I Get Dental Implants?

If you are an adult in good oral and overall health, then yes – you will likely qualify for dental implants! The eligibility factors include gum health and jawbone strength. Implant treatment requires healthy bone and gum tissue that can fuse with the implant properly. Having an implant specialist on hand allows us to perform any necessary pre-treatments to ensure your treatment is successful.

What Can I Expect with Dental Implant Treatment?

Our dentists collaborate with you and our specialist to carefully plan and craft a personalized treatment plan for restoring your smile. We also use advanced technology such as digital imaging and impressions to gain precise details of your jawbone, gums, and remaining teeth. This information provides us with an in-depth understanding of your smile and oral health.

Our expert places your implants with skill and precision. The length of the procedure will depend on the number of posts you need and where they are located. It can take up to six months for the implant post to fuse to the bone and tissue. Once complete, you'll have another appointment so we can add your new denture, crown, or bridge.
