Types of Dental Implants
EON Clinics provides different types of dental implants to meet the needs of all our patients.
Our highly-trained team of dental implant professionals offers personalized treatment for patients dealing with missing teeth. Explore the types of dental implants below.
Full Jaw All-On-4 Dental Implants
When patients require full upper and/or lower restorations to replace their dentures or failing teeth, full jaw All-on-four dental implants offer an effective solution. Instead of using bone grafting and six to eight implants for each full arch of teeth, this approach only requires the placement of four implants and rarely necessitates grafting. It comes with a 97.8% success rate.
This approach is specifically for patients with poor oral health, simplifying treatment and maximizing the use of available bone so patients can have a full mouth restoration quickly. After the initial consultation with our professionals at EON Clinics and a prosthetic exam, you’ll be able to enjoy a full set of teeth after just one appointment for the procedure.
Multiple Tooth Implants
If you have multiple missing teeth or multiple teeth must be extracted — if the surrounding teeth are healthy — multiple tooth implants may be the right solution for you. Implant-supported bridges replace some of the tooth roots with implants via oral surgery, which helps to preserve healthy bone. This also replace missing teeth without using the support from adjacent teeth, while other common treatments for tooth loss — such as removable partial dentures and fixed dentures — depend on support from surrounding teeth.
The process involves placing implants into the jaw, and then the implants and bone are allowed to heal and bond for several months. Once ready, replacement teeth will be created and attached to abutments, restoring your teeth’s function. Healthy teeth are preserved, and unhealthy or missing teeth are replaced for your improved oral health.

Single Tooth Implants
Single tooth implants are used when one tooth needs to be extracted or a tooth is missing and the surrounding teeth are healthy. Although other tooth replacement options are available, these types of implants are the only option that won’t compromise the health of adjacent teeth. If you have a cracked tooth, a missing tooth or a decaying tooth, a single implant can be an excellent solution.
Titanium implants are used, since titanium will adhere to your bone over time. Once the implant is in place, a crown will be placed on the implant and abutment. When complete, it will look and feel just like a natural tooth. The implant can be colored to look like the rest of your teeth, giving you a beautiful, functional smile.
