What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small posts or screws that are surgically inserted into the jawbone where teeth have gone missing. Traditional tooth replacements like bridges and dentures sit on top of the gums, only replacing the crown or the visible portion of the tooth. Dental implants, however, are the only way to replace the root of the tooth, which is an essential part of a healthy smile and jawbone.

Implants are typically constructed of durable and biocompatible titanium that fuses with the jawbone for a secure and permanent tooth replacement solution. A single dental implant can replace a single missing tooth with the help of a crown on top. Or, multiple implants can be used to secure the jawbone and anchor multi-tooth restorations like bridges and implant-supported dentures.
Implant-Supported Dentures
If you recently suffered the loss of your natural teeth, we want you to know you’re not alone and we’re here to help! With today’s technology and materials, living with dentures can be just like your life before them—especially with the help of dental implants!

If you’re living with old, ill-fitting dentures that don’t stay put, we want you to know you don’t have to live this way! We promise there is a better solution with implant-supported dentures.

With implant-supported dentures, we use a series of implants, depending on your individual needs, to secure the jawbone and a full arch of teeth that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth. Imagine a life free from messy denture adhesives, and constantly worrying whether your teeth are going to slip. This is the freedom and quality of life that implant-supported dentures can provide, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods again, to speak naturally, and to smile with confidence!
All-on-4® Teeth in a Day
If you’re interested in implant-supported dentures, but maybe you can’t afford that many implants or you don’t want to wait six months during the healing period without teeth, All-on-4® Teeth in a Day might be just the solution for you.

All-on-4 Teeth in a Day is a complete implant-denture system, but we use fewer implants to support the maximum number of teeth—a full arch. How can we accomplish the same security and function with fewer implants, you ask? It’s all about the angle. With All-on-4, the back implants are placed at an angle, so they can support more teeth with fewer implants.

Did we mention that with All-on-4 Teeth in a Day, there’s no six-month waiting period for your implants to heal? How can that be? Well, because of the angle at which the implants are placed, we can secure a set of healing teeth the same day your implants are placed. The healing teeth act as stabilizers to ensure your implants heal successfully, and you can walk away with a new smile the very same day!
Denture Insertion Post-op Instructions
  1. Do not wear your dentures at night. This allows gum tissues to rest and promotes oral health.
  2. Dentures are very delicate and may break if dropped even a few inches. Stand over a folded towel or a basin of water when handling dentures. When you are not wearing them, store your dentures away from children and pets.
  3. Like natural teeth, dentures must be brushed daily to remove food deposits and plaque. Brushing helps prevent dentures from becoming permanently stained and helps your mouth stay healthy. It is best to use a brush designed for cleaning dentures. A toothbrush with soft bristles can also be used. Avoid using hard-bristled brushes that can damage dentures. Some denture wearers use hand soap or mild dishwashing liquid which are both acceptable for cleaning dentures. Avoid using other powdered household cleansers which may be too abrasive. Also, avoid using bleach, as this may whiten the pink portion of the denture.
Denture Cleaning Steps
  1. Rinse away loose food particles thoroughly.
  2. Moisten the brush and apply denture cleanser. Brush every surface, scrubbing gently to avoid damage
  3. Dentures may lose their shape if they are allowed to dry out. When they are not worn, dentures should be placed in a denture cleanser soaking solution or in water. Even with full dentures, you still need to take good care of your mouth. Every morning brush your gums, tongue and palate with a soft-bristled brush before you put in your dentures. This removes plaque and stimulates circulation in the mouth. Selecting a balanced diet for proper nutrition is also important for maintaining a healthy mouth. Regular dental check-ups are important. Please book follow up appointment as recommended.
