Dental implants are artificial replacement tooth roots designed to act just like your natural tooth roots. Dental implants are screw-like hardware or titanium rods that mimic your tooth roots and hold a dental prosthesis in place. Dental implants can effectively replace missing teeth.
In the office, your WPD Dental Group dentist surgically fuses your dental implants to your jawbone. The implants are made from materials that are completely safe and work alongside your bone and tissue.
WPD Dental Group provides All-on-4 dental implants involving just four implants that can support a full arch of fixed (nonremovable) artificial teeth. With All-on-4, you have a full set of teeth without multiple surgeries.
Typically, one implant replaces one tooth root, but only four implants are needed for the entire upper or lower arch with the All-on-4 method. Your dentist can perform the All-on-4 dental implants procedure on the upper or lower arch, or both arches at the same time.
The All-on-4 dental implants procedure is usually performed in four steps. Your WPD Dental Group dentist starts by conducting a detailed examination of your current oral health and dental records.
The next step is convenient in-office CT scans to generate detailed 3D images of your jawbone and teeth. The scans typically also include the positions of your replacement teeth using a special software that helps your dentist determine where your nerves and your sinus bone are located.
The third step involves your dentist planning your surgery and creating a computer simulation of the implants. Advanced software helps your dentist digitally position the implants into your jawbone at the right location to provide the most support.
The next step is the oral surgery. During surgery, your dentist carefully administers anesthesia and surgically places the dental implants directly into your jawbone.
It takes a few months for your new implants and your jawbone to successfully fuse, a process called osseointegration. After the healing process is complete, you return to WPD Dental Group so your dentist can secure your beautiful new replacement teeth on top of your dental implants.
