Dental implants are surgically placed into the jaw bone, where they fuse with the natural bone. In addition to cosmetic improvements, dental implants offer several significant health and lifestyle benefits.  
·         Implants stimulate jaw bones, preventing bone loss.
·         Implants mirror natural teeth and roots, thus preserving facial shape.
·         When properly integrated, implants do not slip or make embarrassing noises.
    Patients with bone loss in their jaws may have found their implant options limited. However, now they too can enjoy the advantages of long-term tooth replacement.  

 A New Type of Implant  
All-on-4® dental implants use only four implants for support, and most patients do not require a bone graft before the procedure. A periodontist places four implants in the areas with the most bone density. A new or existing denture can serve as a framework for a temporary set of teeth on the same day. The bone fully integrates with the implant in about six months, when a final set of teeth are placed.
