What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a permanent solution for patients with teeth that are missing, broken, or failing. Before your dental implant procedure, you will meet with one of our Doctors for a consultation to determine the right treatment plan for you. At this time, Dr. Sutherland or Dr. Otero will evaluate your current oral health, review your past medical history, provide any necessary scanning, and discuss your anesthesia options and overall goals for treatment. Your consultation is an opportunity for you to present any questions or concerns that you may have.

What are the benefits of Implants?
Dental implants offer several benefits over other tooth replacement options. Patients can expect to enjoy these advantages and more:
Ability to eat the foods you like
Increased jaw stability
Improvement of speech
Prevention of bone loss
Taking care of dental implants is simple — just brush and floss every day as you would with the rest of your natural teeth. If you take care of your dental implants and see your dentist regularly, they can last a lifetime. At Quality Dentures and Implants, we want you to feel confident about your smile and oral health. The good news is many patients are excellent candidates for dental implants and can get started quickly. If you would like to address your tooth replacement options and learn more about dental implants, please give our office a call.
What happens during the implant placement?
The dental implant process always begins with a consultation. Dr. Sutherland or Dr. Otero will perform a thorough oral examination, review your medical history, order any additional scans (if needed), and form a personalized treatment plan just for you. Anesthesia options will be discussed and chosen at this time as well. This is also the time to ask any questions that you may have. Your surgical appointment will be set for another day, and you will leave the consultation with pre- and post-operative instructions.
Your surgical appointment will begin with the administration of anesthesia which will help you to relax during your procedure. The initial step is usually the insertion of the titanium post — also known as the screw. Then we will lift the gum tissue and insert the screw into the empty tooth socket. Stitches are used to close the surgical site. After this procedure, you will have a three-month healing period allowing time for the screw to fuse into the jaw bone for a secure foundation. During the healing period, you will wear a temporary prosthesis. Once the screw has fused into the jaw bone, you will return for the placement of the crown and abutment. In some cases, the abutment is positioned at the same time as the screw. After the crown is placed, you can start enjoying your new, permanent smile!
What are all-on-4?
Eat, speak, and smile with confidence again! All-on-4, also known as a full-arch restoration, is a procedure that replaces an entire upper or lower arch of teeth that are currently missing or failing. With All-on-4, multiple implant surgeries are unnecessary, and patients can experience a completely new and functioning set of teeth in as little as one procedure.
A temporary but fixed set of teeth will be placed on four or more dental implants that have been inserted in the upper or lower arch. A permanent arch will be positioned after the dental implants have healed — usually over a period of several weeks.
What are the benefits of all-on-4 Implants?
Permanent. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. No more removable dentures!
Immediate results. Although there is a healing period, patients enjoy their new smile the same day they have their implants placed.
Heal faster. Oral surgeons optimize the position of each implant — as few as four dental implants are used during this procedure which reduces the need for excessive bone grafting and individual implants.
Improved bone health. A functioning arch of teeth stimulates the bone underneath to prevent bone loss.
Easy to maintain. Say goodbye to dental adhesives! After the healing period, caring for a restored upper or lower arch of teeth requires only daily brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. On occasion, you may need to see us or your dentist for an adjustment.
Positive experience. Patients who have multiple missing or failing teeth often suffer from low self-esteem and other issues. Get ready to smile again after all-on-4 Dental Implants!
