Dental implants are considered the “gold standard” of solutions for treating and replacing missing teeth. Placing implants is a surgical procedure, and therefore best accomplished by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon with in-depth training and education in surgery and implant dentistry. Our oral surgeons have placed thousands of dental implants during their training and in-practice experience, ranging from simple replacement of one tooth to complex reconstructions restoring an entire smile.
Dental implant procedures are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Our goal for a person who has lost teeth or is missing them is to restore their ability to eat anything and enhance their smile and confidence.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone to replace the roots of missing teeth. The bone fuses or integrates with the engineered titanium post, creating a reliable “platform” or foundation for artificial teeth. After the dental implant heals, your dentist will fabricate a crown that is placed on top of the implant to replace the damaged or missing tooth.

The Dental Implant Procedure
For most patients, the dental implant procedure involves one surgical placement. First, implants are placed within your jawbone in a quick and comfortable procedure. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants gradually fuse with the jawbone and gain stability. Temporary dentures may be worn, and a normal diet can be maintained while the implant is healing. Once the implant has integrated, you will return to your dentists’ office for placement of crowns, bridges, or dentures on top of the implant.
For some select patients, a second procedure is necessary to uncover the dental implant and place a special attachment before receiving your crown. The crown is the only visible part, as the implant is hidden beneath the gums. Most patients experience minimal disruption in their daily life after the dental implant procedure has been completed.

“I came in for a consult and had my x-rays taken as part of it. I was very impressed with the technology and equipment Four Corners had. The assistant pulled up my x-rays immediately on the screen and Dr. Mascarenhas was able to walk me through my treatment plan right away. I am looking forward to my procedure next month, as the staff and surgeon were very welcoming and professional.”

“I came in to see Dr. Mascarenhas for 2 dental extractions. I was so pleased with how the procedure went and that my recovery was fast and seamless – I went back to work the next day. This was an exceptional experience for me as I had gotten another tooth extracted at a different office about 3 years ago, and it hurt me for 3-4 months after; Dr. Mascarenhas’ work was flawless! I’m very thankful for the staff’s experience and professionalism.”
