What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that restore function and aesthetic appeal to your smile. Using computer-guided surgery, we place the implants into your jawbone, where they permanently fuse with the living tissue and bone to create a stable replacement for your teeth. They are made up of three main parts:

  • A Post: the part that is surgically placed in your jaw and replaces natural tooth roots
  • An Abutment: connects the post to the prosthetic
  • The Prosthetic: a crown, bridge, or denture that replaces the visible part of the tooth

You may need dental implants because of significant tooth decay, broken teeth, or lost teeth. Implants help prevent your jaw from weakening and your other teeth from shifting; they also help you regain normal function when chewing and speaking. When you come into our practice for a consultation, we will do a thorough examination, including a CBCT scan, to understand the current state of your oral health and determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Our Dental Implant Solutions

Whether you have lost teeth due to advanced decay, gum disease, damage, or injury, fixed dentures are a great choice for patients who have lost many or most of their teeth. We will do our best to improve your jaw's stability, restore your bite, and maximize your comfort with our modern dental implant services. Dr. Rizkalla is well-versed in various types of dental implants, especially for full-mouth restorations, and will work with you to find the best treatment option.

  • Fixed Dentures: Fixed or implant-supported dentures are prosthetic restorations anchored to your jawbone for support. We use fixed dentures in many of our full-arch replacements because they can replace entire upper and lower arches. The primary benefits of fixed dentures over traditional dentures are that they are more comfortable, more natural looking, and don't need to be removed for cleaning, so you can care for them like you would natural teeth.
  • All-on-X Dental Implants: Traditionally, implant-supported dentures need six to eight implant posts in a single arch to keep them in place. All-on-X is a solution that can stabilize an entire arch with as few as four implant posts by placing them at strategic angles in your jaw. This is a good option if you are missing all your teeth on your lower or upper arch. Compared to traditional implant-supported dentures, All-on-X dental implants usually have a shorter recovery time so you can get back to living your life as soon as possible.
  • Same-Day Dental Implants with TeethXpress®: With the TeethXpress full-mouth dental implant procedure, you can receive an entire set of new teeth in a single day. This method uses between four and six dental implants to secure your teeth, offering an immediate solution with fewer appointments. Dr. Rizkalla is a certified TeethXpress provider and is passionate about helping patients who qualify achieve a natural-looking and functional smile.
  • Hybridge® Dental Implants: The Hybridge Dental Implant Bridge offers a lasting solution for missing teeth on one or both arches. As a Hybridge certified dental implant dentist, Dr. Rizkalla has completed several rigorous training courses to gain the skill needed to restore your smile with a combination of professional care and precise technology. During treatment, we will place temporary tooth replacements to ensure you never go without teeth while healing. Once placed, Hybridge Dental Implants are made to fit comfortably and are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Plymouth Dental Implant FAQ

At Rizkalla Dental Associates, we understand dental implants can be intimidating, and you may have questions regarding treatment. Our team is happy to guide you through the dental implant process and answer any questions you have along the way. Common questions we receive include:

How do I care for my dental implants?

Our doctor will provide you with any after-care instructions post-surgery, including proper medications and hygiene processes needed directly after receiving your tooth implants to ensure proper healing. To care for your dental implants after they have healed, you will brush and floss twice daily, avoid smoking and excessive drinking, and maintain regular visits to our office to help ensure optimal oral health.

Yes! Your dental implants are designed to act and feel like normal teeth. After healing, you can enjoy eating and drinking just as you normally would.

Dental implants are designed to be a lasting solution to tooth loss. Your new dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Your restoration experiences wear and tear daily, just as your normal teeth do, and can last for over a decade before needing to be replaced.

Dental implants are a versatile procedure designed for any adult who is missing a single tooth or requires full mouth restoration. Prior to undergoing a tooth implant procedure, our dentist will perform a consultation to understand your oral health, overall health, necessary pretreatments, and goals for your smile to determine whether dental implants are right for you.
