A dental implant is the most permanent, realistic way to replace missing teeth.

Three basic parts make up a dental implant: the crown, an abutment, the titanium screw. The screw is implanted into your jaw bone, the abutment attaches to the screw connecting the implant and the crown.parts of a dental implant

The 4M Dental Implants treatment is a specialized, high-end dental implant procedure that permanently replaces missing or diseased teeth.  With as few as four implants Dr. Sean Mohtashami can replace an entire arch of teeth. By strategically placing the implants, Dr. Sean utilizes maximum bone which also adds to the implants strength.

4M’s aren’t bulky like dentures, and are permanent unlike any other tooth replacement option out there.  Maintenance is minimal and with proper care, 4M Dental Implants can last a lifetime.

Dentures are bulky, you feel like you’re holding something in your mouth. Implants are just the tooth and very easy to get used to. denture v 4m dental implants

Dentures often slip or float in the mouth and adhesives are needed to keep them in place. Dental implants are permanently secured in your mouth and will not slip out of place.

Maintenance is a constant with dentures: must take them in and out daily, apply and clean off adhesives, careful not to drop or misplace, as jawbone wears away you’ll need to have your denture relined to maintain a decent fit.

Maintenance with implants is much simpler: brush, floss, and use a water pik after you eat.

Tooth roots are what keep a jawbone healthy. Without a tooth – and therefore a root – the bone of your jaw will deteriorate. This causes the shape of your face to change, giving a sunken, older appearance. Dentures sit on top of your gums, there’s nothing in the bone, leaving your jaw bone to wear down over time. Only an implant can mimic a tooth root.

Dental bridges gap the space left from missing teeth which leaves your jaw without a tooth root. Like with dentures, your bone will wear down, changing your facial structure.

A bridge requires other teeth to attach to, this means that sometimes healthy teeth fall prey to the bridge preparation as they’re filed way down for the crown to fit over. When tooth is filed down enamel is lost which is what protects your teeth from decay and over sensitivity. Implants aren’t dependent on other teeth to work. A single implant will not negatively impact any remaining healthy teeth at all.

There are no tell tale signs you have implants – no metal clips, or gaps between your teeth, or bulky denture. There are many more benefits to dental implants you can read about HERE.

That’s the whole point! Nothing looks more like natural teeth than dental implants. Take a look for yourself: 4M Dental Implants Smile Gallery

You can expect to be here for approximately an hour to 90 minutes when receiving a single implant, they can often be done without anesthesia and that cuts down on the length of the procedure.

A 4M Dental Implant treatment replaces one or both arches and will require I.V. sedation, both adding time to the procedure. Expect to be here for the day.

The good news is that most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated. But as with any surgery, some soreness and swelling can be expected and you can expect a single implant to cause less discomfort than placing several might.

It seems that day 3 is often the day you’ll experience the most discomfort because by then all the medicine from the surgery is out of your system.

We offer our patients anesthesia and sedation options to help reduce any discomfort during the procedure or any anxiety going into it. Medications to ease discomfort the days following will be prescribed by your doctor. Remember to take your pain medication before you start feeling anything.

Dental implants are fairly simple to clean and maintain – you just have to be sure to do it! Brush and floss your teeth like you normally would. Use a water pik for additional cleaning in the harder to reach areas. All Bright Dental provides a Hydro Floss to all our 4M patients for free. A Hydro Floss is a high-quality oral irrigator that cleans under the gum line and removes plaque and food debris between your teeth.

Once a year you’ll come in for a 4M cleaning where we’ll remove your prosthetic for a deep, thorough cleaning around your implants. By maintaining your cleanings with us, we will honor a lifetime warranty on your implants!
