A single dental implant is ideal for patients looking to replace a missing tooth. Unlike other restorations, a dental implant doesn’t put any stress on the surrounding teeth and gums. In fact, dental implants are the only restoration that reverses the damage to your smile caused by missing teeth. That’s because the titanium post that secures your dental implant stimulates healthy jawbone growth.
Just like a single-tooth restoration with a dental implant, a multiple-tooth restoration is custom-designed to blend in with the rest of your smile. Dr. Alfano will create a custom prosthetic that’s secured using two or more implants. This is the healthiest way to achieve an attractive, natural-looking smile.
If you’ve been wearing dentures or you’re missing several teeth and you’re looking for a stable restoration, Dr. Stephen Alfano will restore your whole smile using a single, full-arch restoration. This implant-secured prosthetic provides an arch that looks, feels, and functions like your natural teeth.
One of the major benefits of a full arch restoration is that you’ll leave our office with an attractive, fully-functional temporary prosthetic after just one treatment. Dr. Alfano will then place your permanent prosthetic teeth as soon as your body has healed from implant surgery.
Dr. Alfano and our staff at Balboa Island Dentistry are proud to provide our patients with the All-on-4® dental implant restoration. This fantastic new approach to tooth-replacement alleviates the discomfort and hassle of dentures and produces a stable, beautiful new smile.
