At Rockton Dental we offer several implant-related treatments to replace one or more missing teeth. We specialize in implant treatment because we believe that dental implants are the ideal solution for tooth loss.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium screw that we surgically embed deep into the jawbone. Once the implant is in place, it will slowly fuse to your jaw through the process of osseointegration. After a brief healing period, the implant screw will be able to support a restoration against the strongest forces of your bite. Dental implants can be used to support a single crown, a partial bridge, and a full-arch restoration.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. This makes implants a more convenient, durable, secure, and aesthetically pleasing option over traditional restorations. The numerous benefits of dental implants have made them the industry standard for tooth replacement!
All-on-4® Treatment Concept
We offer the All-on-4 treatment concept for patients missing all or most of their teeth. As the name suggests, this full-arch restoration only uses four implants to support the entire bridge. The posterior (back) implants are placed at an angle to utilize the strongest part of the jawbone. Other full-arch restorations usually require six to eight implants. Thanks to the revolutionary new technique, All-on-4 is much more effective and minimally-invasive than other options.
Who Is a Candidate?
If you are in good oral and overall health, you should qualify for implant treatment. If you have experienced significant bone deterioration due to tooth loss, you may need a bone graft first. During your consultation, Dr. Kenneth O'Brien will be able to determine if implants are right for you. This usually involves a series of diagnostic tests that may include digital x-rays and CBCT scans.
