Dental implants are a permanent solution to one or more missing teeth. Implants feel natural and look like your own teeth. An implant is a metal post implanted surgically into your jaw onto which your dentist attaches a custom-made prosthetic tooth.

Depending on your specific needs, you may choose endosteal or All-on-4 implants.
Endosteal implants are the most common type of implant and are inserted directly into your jawbone. The type of endosteal implant that Dr. Messih chooses for you depends on the quality and amount of bone that you have in your jaw.
All-on-4 implants are a type of full-mouth implant that are a superior alternative to dentures if you’re missing a full row of teeth. The dentist places four dental implants into your jaw, onto which they affix a set of natural-looking replacement teeth. You may also be a candidate for bridge-supported implants.
