If you have a missing tooth, either due to gum disease, decay, or accident, dental implants are the ideal solution for you. A dental implant procedure is one of the most sought-after solutions for missing teeth. It is considered the most ideal and natural replacement for missing teeth — the end results look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Sunny Dental uses the latest and most effective dental implant procedures, such as guided dental implants and all-on-4 dental implants near me, to ensure optimal results. Dr. George’s minimalist approach has given numerous patients a second chance with the perfect smile.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a replacement for the missing tooth’s root structure. It’s an artificial tooth root that supports the prosthesis, such as dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. The dental implant is a titanium screw drilled into the jawbone underneath the missing tooth’s socket. Over time, the bone tissues heal around the dental implant, anchoring the implant in place. This makes the dental implant a firmly rooted part of your dental anatomy. The dentist attaches an abutment to the implant and a prosthetic component to the abutment. The end result looks, feels, and functions naturally.
The Dental Implant Prosthetic Options
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped porcelain or composite resin cap. It’s attached to the implant to replace one missing tooth. As such, if you’re missing one tooth or several teeth in isolated locations around your mouth, the dental implant dentist may recommend dental crowns.
A dental bridge is a series of fake teeth used to replace a row of missing teeth. The dental bridge consists of the pontics (fake teeth) and the crowns on either side of the bridge. If you’re missing more than two teeth in a single row, the dentist can fasten a dental bridge to one or two strategically positioned implants. As such, multiple teeth can be replaced with just one or two implants.
A full-arch denture is a complete arch of fake teeth attached to a gum-colored base. If you’re missing all your teeth, the dentist can attach implants to four strategically chosen locations on the upper or lower arches of your mouth. The implants can then support a complete arch of fake teeth, i.e., the denture. As such, dentures are the ideal prosthetic option for patients missing all their teeth.

Dental Implants/ All-on-4 FAQs
What is the role of dental implants in oral health?
Dental implants support overall oral health and anatomical integrity. Without an implant or tooth root, the underlying jawbone starts disintegrating, weakening the overall oral anatomy. Over time, your lower face may start sagging, and your teeth start drifting out of alignment, leading to malocclusion. Dental implants preserve the jawbone, protect the surrounding teeth, and maintain optimal oral health.
Who needs dental implant treatment?
Dental implants are suitable for patients missing one, many, or all of their teeth. However, the ideal candidate must have good oral health and sufficient jawbone tissues.
How long does dental implants take?
In traditional dental implants, the patient has to wait for several months after the dental implant surgery to receive the permanent prosthetic. However, Sunny Dental specializes in same-day dental implant procedures. Our dentist places the dental implants and the prosthetics, such as the all-on-4 dentures, during one session. As such, you can walk out with the perfect smile in one session.
Can I get all-on-4 dental implants on just one arch, or does it have to be both?
You can get all-on-4 dental implants on just one arch.
