Patient Discussing All-On-4 Dental Implant with PeriodontistFor patients who have lost one, two, or even an entire mouthful of teeth, dental implants can provide amazing results that are natural-looking, fully functional, and permanently secured within the jawbone. No matter the reason for your loose or missing teeth, Dr. Kissel can utilize microsurgery techniques to precisely replace your tooth roots so you can get back to enjoying your life with confidence!

Replacing One (or a few) Missing Tooth

When you come in to see Dr. Kissel for your initial dental implant consultation, he will perform a full evaluation to determine how many teeth you need to have replaced. If you have one, or even a few missing teeth, he’ll recommend traditional dental implants, which may be placed directly into the jawbone (Endosteal).

In most cases, Dr. Kissel can replace several teeth in a row using one implant for 1-2 teeth, depending on your specific needs and jawbone structure. Once he has placed your dental implants, he will attach a temporary prosthetic crown that will allow you to eat and speak freely until your jawbone and dental implants fuse together.

Replacing an Arch or Mouthful of Teeth

If you need to replace an entire arch of teeth or an entire mouthful of teeth, Dr. Kissel will likely use All-on-4 dental implants. This less-invasive full-mouth restoration option uses just 4 dental implants per arch of teeth and avoids the need for any pre-surgeries prior to placement. By strategically placing each implant into healthy jawbone, All-on-4 dental implants are able to easily support a full arch of teeth.

All-on-4 dental implants are best for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth, want to replace their removable dentures with a permanent option, or those who want to fully restore their oral function.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Men and women can benefit from dental implants in many ways, including:

  • Increased tooth functionality
  • Better aesthetic appearance
  • Prevention of bone resorption
  • Healthier adjacent teeth
  • Long-lasting solution
  • Enhanced functionality
  • Durable and safe
  • Easy to maintain
  • Confidence boosting

To find out which type of dental implants are right for you, the first thing you should do is schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Kissel so he can perform a full evaluation of your mouth, take any needed images or X-rays, talk to you about your overall health history, answer your questions, and work with you to develop a treatment plan that suits your needs.

Dr. Kissel Uses Microsurgery to Place Dental Implants

To place dental implants, Dr. Kissel uses microsurgery techniques that allow him to perform the procedure in a way that avoids causing major incisions and trauma to sensitive tissues, muscles, and nerves. The result is a more comfortable surgery and a faster, easier recovery process. Additionally, by using micro-instruments and making very small incisions, every dental implant patient will walk away with their surrounding gums unaffected and normal looking. That means you can get back to your normal daily activities without swollen gums or cheeks.
