If you're missing teeth, dental implants are an excellent option for restoring your smile. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are inserted into your jawbone to provide support for replacement teeth. At Catalina Dental, we offer several dental implant options, including the following:

Fixed Teeth Implants vs. Removable

Fixed teeth implants are a popular choice for patients who want a permanent, long-term solution for missing teeth. These implants consist of a titanium post, which is surgically implanted into the jawbone, and a customized dental crown that is attached to the post. The result is a natural-looking, functional tooth that can last a lifetime with proper care. One of the main advantages of fixed teeth implants is that they provide a stable, comfortable fit that feels and looks just like your natural teeth. They also do not require any adhesives or special cleaning solutions.

On the other hand, removable dentures are a more traditional option for replacing missing teeth. They consist of a set of prosthetic teeth that are attached to a plastic or metal base that rests on the gums. Traditional dentures can become ill-fitting and loose over time, as the jawbone naturally changes shape and recedes without the stimulation of tooth roots. This can lead to discomfort, difficulty speaking or eating, and even embarrassment in social situations. Implant-supported dentures can help to alleviate these issues by providing a more stable and secure fit, allowing you to enjoy all the benefits of a natural-looking, functional smile without any of the drawbacks of traditional dentures.


All-on-4 is a specialized dental implant technique that allows patients to replace an entire arch of teeth with just four strategically placed implants. This procedure is ideal for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth and want a permanent, fixed solution. The All-on-4 technique involves placing two implants at the front of the jaw and two implants at the back, which are angled for maximum stability. A full arch of prosthetic teeth is then attached to the implants, creating a natural-looking, functional smile.
Here are some benefits of All-on-4 dental implants:
  • Only four implants needed to support an entire arch of teeth
  • Prevent bone loss in the jawbone
  • Natural-looking smile
  • Improved speech
  • Easy to maintain and care for

Implant-supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are similar to traditional dentures but are held in place with dental implants. They provide a more stable fit and do not require adhesives or special cleaning solutions. Implant-supported dentures can be either fixed or removable, depending on your preferences and needs.
