Dental implants are great for replacing one or a few missing or damaged teeth. A fixture is secured into your jawbone that acts just like your natural root, creating a stable base for your new tooth.

All-On-4 dental implants consist of placing 4 implants on the upper, lower or both rows of teeth that support a larger restoration. Less invasive and often times less expensive that placing multiple single implants, this multi-tooth replacement options offers many of the same benefits as traditional implants. All-on-4 functions and feels like natural teeth and with proper care, can last a lifetime.

Hybrid dentures use a series of implants to allow a full restoration of upper or lower rows of teeth. Depending on your preferences, this overdenture can either snap into place or be permanently fixed into place. Depending on the condition of your smile, Dr. Carley may also be able to extract remaining teeth and place your implants on the same day, giving you to get the smile you’ve always wanted sooner.
