What They Are: Dental implants are changing the way people live. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. A person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that their teeth appear natural and that their facial contours will be preserved. They can be made of a wide range of materials and used for many different purposes. Some implants hold a crown, others anchor bridges. Dental implants can be used as part of a complete solution to tooth loss, such as trefoil dental implants and all-on-four dental implants.
How They Help Your Oral Health: Missing teeth is hazardous to your oral health. Dental implants hold a space in your jaw (preventing decay) and provide a strong root to affix a crown, bridge, or other tooth replacement option.
All-On-4 Dental Implants
What They Are: All-on-4 offers a life changing treatment that gives patients a new smile in just one day. This treatment concept is a cost-efficient, graftless solution that provides patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery. Dental implants can be a great alternative to dentures, and provide a more permanent option that requires less maintenance over time. All-On-4 dental implants offer a myriad of benefits through a unique design that features a full arch of teeth with just four screw placements. This can be a lot faster and more affordable than tooth-by-tooth implantation, and can minimize the recovery period too.
How They Help Your Oral Health: If you’re missing teeth, dental implants can be a viable, long-term solution for restoring your beautiful smile. All-On-4 implants look just like regular implants, but can give you better results in just one, full-mouth restoration procedure for a total transformation of your oral health.
What They Are: The Trefoil system is a breakthrough in efficiency for treating the mandible. Using a pre-manufactured bar with a unique fixation mechanism, it can adjust to compensate for inherent deviations from the ideal implant position. This is a new fixed solution for definitive teeth in one day.
How They Help Your Oral Health: The trefoil system offers a high-quality efficient fixed solution for more edentulous patients and patients with failing dentition. Benefits of fixed solutions offer improved function with a higher bite force, better retention and stability, and avoidance of some disadvantages of removable solutions including more mucosal problems and the wear of components.
