The permanent solution for your missing teeth.
If you are missing one or more teeth, or have a removable denture, then you are a candidate for a dental implant. Dental implants will allow you to smile, speak, and eat with confidence and comfort. Dental Implants for missing teeth can improve your appearance and allow you to enjoy the foods you love. Only a dental implant can replace the root of a missing tooth. If a root is not replaced, bone loss will occur resulting in undesirable consequences for your remaining teeth.
If you are unable to eat what you want or speak clearly because your dentures shift, tilt and wander, then MDI Mini Dental Implants may be for you. The MDI System consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces.
The All-on-4® treatment concept is a dental implant solution strategically designed for toothless jaws. If you are unhappy with your dentures or no longer want to live without teeth, it might be the right solution for you.
With only four dental implants, the All-on-4® treatment concept can restore a complete jaw of missing teeth.
This technique offers you several advantages:
Shorter treatment time, lower costs
The low number of implants needed for the All-on-4® treatment concept considerably reduces treatment time and often makes this solution more cost-effective than comparable treatment alternatives.
A very elaborate way of placing implants at the back of the mouth also makes it a treatment option for patients whose jaw bone is severely reduced after years without teeth.
Fixed teeth from day one
Depending on your individual dental situation, your dentist can connect your implants to a temporary bridge on the day of surgery. This means you can leave the dental office with a full set of teeth and return to leading a normal life. After a certain healing time, your dentist will exchange your temporary bridge with the final bridge created by a dental laboratory.
Speak to your dentist to find out, if the All-on-4® treatment concept is the right solution for you.
