As few as four dental implants can be used to support twelve teeth in one arch (upper or lower). This reduces the cost greatly for permanent teeth. Dr. Vigna also uses the unique Zygoma implant from Nobel Biocare for severe cases of bone loss in the upper jaw. How is this possible, you may ask? The research and studies have shown over the last ten years that immediate load is possible with implants as long as they are braced together by a denture bridge at the time of insertion. Teeth are removed, dental implants are inserted and your new teeth are attached that same day. It’s a long day, but an important one for the rest of your life. If you are having dental implants placed, ensure your teeth will be fixed and your smile permanent. If you can afford it, don’t accept removable options. With our technique, you receive your permanent teeth the same day.
