Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have both functional and aesthetic benefits, helping patients in ways that improve their daily lives and restore confidence in their appearance. Some of the advantages of dental implants include:
- Permanent replacement for missing teeth
- They often look and feel more natural than a partial or full set of dentures
- No extra daily maintenance other than routine brushing and flossing
- No slippage or movement along the gumline
- Improved ability to speak and chew
- Can prevent a sunken appearance in the face that is often caused by missing teeth
- Can replace a single missing tooth, or a full set of missing teeth
- Can be used to provide extra support and stabilization for a dental bridge, partial denture, or full denture

Dental Implant Options
Single Tooth Dental Implants
If you have a missing tooth and are considering replacement, there are advanced options available to provide you with a natural-looking new tooth that does not affect your adjacent teeth.
All-on-Four/Six Dental Implants/Full Arch Dental Implants
All-on-Four and All-on-Six are innovative dental implant systems designed to replace full arches of teeth. The techniques can be used to replace the upper arch, lower arch, or the entire set of teeth for a full mouth restoration. By replacing an entire arch with an implant-supported prosthesis, patients can enjoy enhanced function from their teeth replacement.
Implant-supported dentures are removable dentures that are supported by dental implants, ultimately adding significant strength to the dentures and virtually eliminating movement and slippage. Through the support of dental implants, these dentures generate the strength and stability to function and look like your normal teeth.

Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement and, as such, should be placed with the utmost accuracy for long-term success. To provide comfortable and precise dental implant results, Dr. John D. Beckwith utilizes the advanced capabilities of 3D computer technology. Through computer-guided implant surgery, he is able to plan the procedure with optimal precision and achieve the most predictable outcome.
