Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, and can last a lifetime.
Brener Clinic may use the below types of dental implant procedures to restore missing teeth and help you regain your smile.
Dental implants are placed directly into your bone, Not only do implants look, feel and function like natural teeth, they also help to preserve the jaw and prevent bone deterioration.
To ensure the success of a dental implant procedure, you must have enough bone in the jaw, and the bone has to be strong enough to support the implant. If there is insufficient bone, Brener Clinic may need to add some with a procedure called bone grafting or bone augmentation. In addition, your natural teeth and supporting tissue near the implant site must be in good health.
A consultation at Brener Clinic will clarify your treatment options.
Single Dental Implant
Single-tooth dental implants are ideal if you are missing one or more teeth. After the implant integrates with your bone, it acts as a new “root” for the crown that will replace your missing tooth. A crown or cap, which looks exactly like a natural tooth, is then attached to the implant to fill the space left by the missing tooth in your mouth.
Multiple Dental Implant
Brener Clinic can successfully replace several missing teeth with multiple dental implants. Unlike removable dentures, implant supported teeth are permanently fixed in your mouth, so they will not slip or click, and you will not have to worry about them moving or falling out when you speak or eat.
Full Arch Dental Implant, including All-on-4
If you have been missing teeth from the entire arch for many years, it is quite likely that your remaining bone support has shrunk, making a full denture uncomfortable. If this is the case, Brener Clinic can place full arch dental implants to replace all your missing teeth. Brener Clinic will strategically place dental implants along your upper or lower jaw and attach a denture-like attachment over abutments on the implant posts. Once placed, a full arch of implants will feel and perform like natural teeth.

An over-denture is supported by dental implants using special attachments, rather than resting on the gums like a regular denture. These attachments stabilise the denture and allow you to remove it for cleaning. If you do not have any teeth in the jaw, but have enough bone to support implants, you may be a candidate for an over-denture.
Over-dentures are usually made for the lower jaw because standard dentures tend to be less stable in that area. Usually, a regular denture made to fit an upper jaw is quite stable on its own and may not need the extra support offered by implants. However depending on each individual situation, an implant-supported denture may be placed in either the upper or lower jaw.
