Types of Implants
There are different kinds of implants designed to help patients with different needs achieve the support they need. Dr. Veligdan has studied the science of dental implants since the late 1970s, and he can accurately assess your needs to determine which kind of implant will benefit you the most.
Traditional dental implants require at least two surgeries and several months of healing time. During the initial surgery, the implant is placed in the jaw, and over the next three to six months, the bone fuses to the implant. Once fusion is complete, restoration of the implant can begin.
All-on-4® implants are designed for patients in need of full or partial dentures. Placed in groups of four to support dentures, these implants make messy adhesives, as well as the fear of slippage while speaking or eating, a thing of the past.
These cone-shaped implants contain a bone-bonding component that allows the implants to be placed in cases of low bone density. This bone-bonding element also reduces recovery time and increases the lifespan of your implants. 3i implants have an incredibly high success rate, and when restored with the highest quality dental crowns, can give you a beautiful, functional smile that will last you a lifetime.
Mini dental implants can be placed and restored in a single visit, allowing you to begin enjoying your new smile the same day. Mini implants require excellent bone density in the jaw. Dr. Veligdan can help you determine which implant variety will best match your condition and needs.
Replacing missing teeth as soon as possible prevents the shifting of your teeth, and supporting your restoration with dental implants prevents the loss of bone mass in the jaw. Implants provide significantly greater support for dentures than traditional adhesives, helping patients to speak more clearly and chew more effectively. With proper care, dental implants can provide you with a lifetime of outstanding support.
