Dental implants are great options to replace single teeth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch of teeth, and there are different types of implants to suit each situation.
Patients who need to replace a full upper and/or lower set of teeth can now receive full mouth implants. Full dental implants (all-on-4 or all-on-6) dental procedure is the best solution for patients with enough bone structure in the jaw.
Single tooth implants involve one titanium screw, an abutment, and a prosthetic crown that matches the shape, size and color of the surrounding teeth.
We offer Zygomatic dental implants for patients who have the most severe form of bone loss in their upper jaw. They are anchored in your cheek bone, which is called the “zygoma.”
If you have more than one missing tooth in differing locations in your mouth, you may require more than one dental implant to completely restore your smile.
Implant-supported dentures can be used to replace an entire arch of teeth, using four to six implants to support a secure and natural-looking arch of dentures that help maintain jawbone density and don’t slip or shift like traditional dentures.
Dental implant bridges are used to replace multiple adjacent teeth, but instead of using one screw per missing tooth, two or more implants are spaced apart and joined together with a bridge of prosthetic teeth that covers the entire gap

Before and After Photos of Dental Implants
Dental implants typically have three parts:
1.A connector – known as an abutment is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns.
2.The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.
3. Small screw made of titanium (the implant) – help to place the implant in the jawbone.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth. They involve a titanium screw surgically implanted in your jaw to support a natural-looking prosthetic tooth.
Compared to other tooth replacement options, dental implants are the most durable, allowing you to eat and speak comfortably. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth and typically last for decades. Dental implants are easy to maintain – all you need to do is brush and floss as usual and get your twice-yearly checkups. Most importantly, dental implants help keep your jawbone healthy and strong – without a natural tooth root or titanium replacement, your jawbone will start to deteriorate, causing further aesthetic and oral health issues.
The first step in the dental implant procedure is a consultation to determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implant surgery. A 3D image of your jaw will show whether you have sufficient bone density to support an implant. If you don’t, you might need bone grafting surgery beforehand.
If you are a suitable candidate for dental implants, the next step is the surgical placement of the titanium screw. The surgery is invasive but no more so than having a tooth removed, and at most you might experience some swelling or discomfort as the implant site heals.
Before the next step of the dental implant procedure, the titanium screw must fuse with your jawbone to provide a stable and dependable foundation for the prosthetic tooth. After about three to six months, your dentist will reopen the gums and attach an abutment, which connects the screw to the new tooth. When the procedure is complete, the missing space will be filled, your jawbone will be strengthened, and no one will be able to tell that one of your teeth is actually a replacement.
Are you missing multiple teeth? If so, the best option is the All-On-4 dental implant. The All-On-4 procedure is an excellent denture alternative to provide a permanent set of replacement teeth. The All-On-4 method is similar to a dental implant, except instead of having a root inserted into the jawbone for each and every tooth you need to replace, you can attach a whole set of teeth to only 4 frames inserted into the jaw. This allows for a minimally invasive procedure that can provide realistic replacement teeth for your whole mouth. Ditch the dentures and avoid the annoyance and embarrassment they can cause. Go with the better alternative with the All-On-4 dental implant procedure from University Dental in San Diego.
