Full Arch Reconstruction

Dental implants offer a superior and permanent solution for replacing missing or damaged teeth. This highly recommended treatment is particularly beneficial for individuals with multiple dental issues, as it provides a long-lasting and natural-looking result. By restoring both the functionality and aesthetics of the smile, dental implants help patients regain their confidence and enjoy a healthier, more complete oral structure.

Bone Grafting

Periodontal Disease stands as the primary culprit behind bone loss in the oral cavity. However, with modern advancements, there are alternative methods available to secure dental implants for a deficient jawbone. While some individuals may lack the necessary 7 mm of width and 8 mm of height for traditional implant placement due to bone atrophy, there’s no need to worry. At Gendler Implant Center, we employ cutting-edge bone graft techniques to effectively rebuild lost bone and utilize innovative approaches to anchor implants to the cheekbone, ensuring optimal outcomes for our patients.

Falling Implants

When implants fail, they often take precious bone tissue with them. We have successfully restored numerous cases of implant failure by employing advanced techniques. Our comprehensive approach involves replacing the failed implants with state-of-the-art alternatives, performing bone graft procedures to regenerate lost bone, and utilizing innovative implant anchorage methods to the cheekbone or Zygomatic bone. We understand the challenges faced by individuals dealing with failed implants and are committed to providing effective solutions that restore oral health and rejuvenate smiles.

Multiple Implants

When individuals lose one or a few teeth, whether they are adjacent or not, we have effective solutions for restoring their smiles. We can address this issue by placing multiple single-implant teeth next to each other, providing a seamless replacement for the missing teeth. Alternatively, we offer implant bridges, which involve placing a few strategically positioned implants that serve as anchors for the bridges. These innovative approaches enable us to create functional and aesthetically pleasing results, helping patients regain their confidence and enjoy a complete set of teeth.

Single Implant

Single implants are a type of dental implant that is used to replace a single missing tooth. They are made of titanium and are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once the implant is in place, a crown is attached to it to create a new tooth. Single implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth and can help to improve your smile, speech, and chewing ability.
