What are Dental Implants

All-on-4 Dental Implant Before and AfterThere are a wide variety of different types of dental implants, but at their core a dental implant starts with a small post that is used as an artificial substitute for the root of a tooth. Next what is known as an abutment, or connector is placed on top of the dental implant. Finally a replacement tooth is built to match your teeth and thus complete the dental implant. As you can imagine it takes great precision to ensure a dental implant looks natural and blends in with your existing teeth. At Comfort Dental we’ve been providing dental implants for quite some time and would be honored to provide you with a consultation to discuss your dental implant needs.

Types of Dental Implant Procedures We Offer:

Single Dental Implants

After Dental Implants from Comfort DentalSingle dental implants can be used when a conventional bridge isn’t necessary. A single implant allows adjacent teeth to be preserved, which is often the goal of patients who are looking for the most natural smile possible after a dental implant procedure.

All on 4 or 6 Dental Implants

All on 4 or all on 6 dental implants are used to replace the bulk of someone’s teeth. The difference between All on 4 or All on 6 refers to the number of implants that will be placed on your top and/or bottom jaws. All on 4 implants use 4 implants, 2 that are located on the upper jaw and 2 on the lower jaw. All on 6 implants use an additional 2 implants to better anchor the dental bridges.

Implant Supported Dentures

Implant supported dentures offer patients the benefits that are often associated with implants but at a price point that is more aligned with dentures. Implant supported dentures involve surgery to attach between 4 to 6 implants into a patient’s jawbone. Once the implants fuse properly, a unique set of dentures is designed and affixed to these implants. This gives the patient a much improved smile without many of the disadvantages associated with dentures.

Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts

Bone grafts are used to increase the amount of bone in a certain part of the jaw. Bone may be taken from elsewhere in the body and fused to existing bone in the jaw. Bone grafts are often done if a patient has lost one of more adult teeth, or has severe gum disease.

A sinus lift is a procedure that is also often referred to as sinus augmentation, which can help to make it easier for dental implants to be placed. This procedure is often needed when patients have suffered from bone loss and therefore do not have enough support necessary for dental implants.

New Operating Guidelines

During the COVID-9 pandemic, the wellbeing of our staff and patients is our highest priority. For this reason, we have implemented several changes in order to support a safe and healthy environment.

— If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-9 or any other illness, please reschedule your appointment. Dental appointments will be spaced in a manner that allows for proper social distancing between patients.

— When you arrive at the office, please remain in your car, call our office to let us know you are here, and a staff member will come out to meet you. The staff member will take your temperature with a no-touch thermometer and ask some COVID-19 screening questions. We request that you remain in your car until we call to let you know that your chair is ready.

— Please arrive at your appointment wearing your own mask. If you do not have a mask, we can provide one.

— Please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before entering the office.

— We ask that patients do not bring others with them into the office, unless you are a parent or guardian of a patient who is a minor or has special needs. If you need to accompany a patient to the door, you will then be asked to wait in your vehicle or outside the office during their appointment.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this difficult time, and we look forward to seeing you at your next appointment!
