All-On-4 FAQ

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a root-like titanium screw placed into the jawbone, which can serve as an anchor for a crown, bridge or denture. The range of options allows implants to be the solution, regardless of how many teeth need replacing.


How do I know if I’m a candidate for dental implants?

Patients who may be candidates for dental implants include those with missing teeth, those struggling with ill-fitting dentures or those considering dentures. Opting for implants in types of situations will lead to greater comfort, less maintenance and permanent attachment.


What types of dental implant procedures are available at Sorriso Dental?

At Sorriso Dental, we offer multiple types of dental implant procedures-from single tooth replacement to full mouth rehabilitation and advanced bone grafting procedures.


Which dental implant procedure is right for me?

An ideal candidate for these procedures is someone suffering from extreme pain or discomfort from lost teeth, injured teeth, teeth worn from acid erosion or grinding or those who experience ongoing issues and pain in the jaw, head and neck.

Alternatively, bone grafting is a procedure done to restore bone to its previous form prior to or following the damage of tooth loss, tooth damage or gum disease. This procedure allows the dentist to create a solid base for dental implants.

At Sorriso Dental, we use a special bone grafting material rather than remove bone from a different part of your body for a transplant to your jaw. An ideal candidate for this procedure is someone whose bone lacks depth, width, density or thickness required for the dental implants.


What types of tools are used during the dental implant procedure?

At Sorriso Dental, we use a special bone grafting material rather than remove bone from a different part of your body for a transplant to your jaw. An ideal candidate for this procedure is someone whose bone lacks depth, width, density or thickness required for the dental implants.

When considering these procedures, it is important to choose an experienced dentist who utilizes state-of-the-art technologies, such as a CBCT Imaging Machine, which takes an in-depth, three-dimensional look at the surgical site before the process begins. This tool provides more detailed and informative x-rays for the dentist to use in determining the placement of dental implants. This diagnostic tool is the best for the success of the procedure.
