Dental Implant Treatment in Temple, Texas
If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are a great way to restore your smile!
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that support fixed restorations, such as a crown, bridge, or denture.
Because of their design and biocompatible materials, your body treats them almost like natural teeth.
Each implant is shaped similar to the size of a tooth's natural root, allowing it to be set into your mouth near the area of your missing teeth.
Plus, implants are strong enough that they can be used in pairs to support multiple-tooth prosthetics (instead of having to wear a removable partial denture!)
The Dental Implant AdvantageImplants are non-invasive to your other teeth. As such, they enhance the overall health of your mouth rather than compromise the natural tooth structure next to them. Plus, their design triggers new bone growth in the jaw, fusing the implant permanently in place (we call this process osseointegration.) Today’s dental implants last longer than any other type of dental restoration, with a success rate as high as 98%. Most people can expect their new implant to last for the rest of their life.
Replace All of Your Missing TeethWhether you have one tooth that needs to be replaced or all of them, our custom dental implant treatments are designed to enhance your overall oral health in the most effective manner possible.

All-on-4® ImplantsThe All-on-4® procedure is a minimally invasive and effective technique for replacing your teeth. This screw-retained device replaces an entire arch of teeth with as few as 4 dental implants. This method provides you with a full set of teeth, without the need for numerous replacements and surgeries required for a complete set of traditional implants.
Those patients that are dealing with a complete loss of their teeth, now have the opportunity to restore their smile. In as little as one procedure performed with a local anesthetic, the treatment can replace the hassle of dentures or the appearance of missing teeth. Similar to natural teeth, All-On-4® allows you to enjoy a beautiful smile and your favorite foods like steak or corn-on-the-cob effortlessly.
What Are the Benefits of All-on-4®?The All-on-4® procedure is for anyone that wants to restore a healthy and beautiful smile. You don’t have to live with missing teeth any longer. If you already use dentures or you are missing several teeth, then you are an ideal candidate for All-on-4® implants.
The All-on-4® system provides a wide range of benefits:
Non-removeable, which allows for normal eating and speaking
Look & feel just like natural teeth
All-on-4® vs. DenturesPeople often have problems with dentures that slip and move as they eat. As a result, they have to be cautious with their food choices, avoiding once enjoyed harder foods, but can’t eat with their dentures.
With All-on-4® implants, you will receive a permanent set of teeth, and in most cases, bite force is up to 70% stronger than dentures. You can enjoy the foods you love, without worrying about your teeth shifting or breaking.
All-on-4® implants increase bone density in your jaw. As we age, the jawbone experiences deterioration, changing your facial features. With All-on-4® implants, you fight resorption by stimulating your jaw to transmit messages to the brain and body that your teeth are healthy.
