At Fast New Smile, we offer a variety of dental implant solutions to meet your unique needs. This guide will explain the different types of dental implants available, their benefits, and how they can help you get the smile you deserve. Read on to learn more about your dental implant options.

Types of Dental Implants

Fast New Smile Dental Implants

Fast New Smile Dental Implants offer a revolutionary approach to dental implants. Unlike traditional implants, which require multiple visits and a longer healing process, FastNewSmile uses a same-day implant technique. This means you can have your implants placed and restored all in one day, giving you immediate results. The procedure is less invasive and more convenient, allowing you to get back to your normal routine faster.

All-On-4® Dental Implants

For All-on-4® implants, the artificial teeth are designed to replace any of your bad or missing teeth. We will begin by taking away any residual tissue from your original teeth before firmly anchoring four titanium posts into your jawbone, providing your new teeth with a secure fit.

All-On-Six Dental Implants

All-On-Six Implants is the same procedure as All-On-4 implants but with two additional dental implants are added to the implant bridge, giving patients essentially a stronger base for their new smile.

Single Implants

A single tooth implant consists of three parts:

  1. The tooth is a high-grade titanium post that is inserted into the jaw and acts as a root,
  2. An abutment that sits on top of the post
  3. An implant crown that adheres to the abutment and connects to the post.

A dental implant is a permanent fixture in your mouth, and it is strong enough to function like a real tooth. Furthermore, single dental implants are individual teeth within your mouth and do not depend on the surrounding teeth for support.

Implant Bridges

A dental implant bridge is a type of restoration that replaces multiple missing teeth with a bridge attached to dental implants. It uses multiple artificial tooth roots, made from titanium, that are placed directly into the jawbone. This allows the bridge to be securely attached, and prevents the bone loss and shifting that can occur with traditional bridges. Dental implant bridges are designed to match the look and feel of your natural teeth, providing you with a beautiful and functional smile. They also last longer than traditional bridges, and require fewer maintenance visits. All of this makes dental implant bridges a great choice for restoring multiple missing teeth.

Zirconia Dental Implants

A zirconia dental implant is a type of dental restoration that uses an artificial tooth root made from zirconia, a type of ceramic material, to replace a missing tooth. This dental restoration is popular because it is highly biocompatible, meaning it won’t cause any irritation to the surrounding tissue or the jawbone, and it is aesthetically pleasing due to its color, which closely resembles that of a natural tooth. Additionally, zirconia is a very strong material, so it will hold up to daily use for many years. A zirconia dental implant can help restore the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth.

Zygomatic and Pterygoid Dental Implants

Zygomatic Implants

When a patient does not have enough bone structure in the jaw to adequately support a dental implant, a stronger bone is needed to ensure proper anchoring during implantation.

FastNewSmile® offers Zygomatic dental implants that are longer, ranging from 30 to 55 mm. The length of these implants is necessary because we anchor them in the patient’s cheekbone for increased stability. Despite the deterioration of the jaw, the cheekbone always retains its strength, making it the ideal location for placing Zygomatic dental implants.

Pterygoid Implants

For patients who have experienced jawbone deterioration but still have strength in their upper jaw, Pterygoid dental implants could be an effective option for a teeth-in-a-day procedure.

With Pterygoid dental implants, our dental implant specialists will place 15 to 20 mm implants in the dense part of the Pterygoid bone. This eliminates the need for bone augmentation and helps patients with severe bone loss avoid Zygomatic implants if possible.


Dentures are a form of prosthetic teeth that are used to replace missing teeth. They are made of either acrylic resin or porcelain and can be used to restore the function and aesthetic of your smile. The custom fit of the denture can be achieved with the help of dental impressions. Models or molds of your upper and lower arches are critical to the denture process. These dental records are used to capture the shape, size, and contour of both your hard and soft tissues. Even if you have lost all of your natural teeth, an attractive and natural smile is still within your grasp.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great solution for individuals who have missing teeth, and they come with a variety of benefits, such as:

  • Long-term solution to tooth loss. Unlike other dental treatments, dental implants are designed to be a permanent part of your mouth.
  • Implants improve your overall oral health by preventing further bone loss and helping to maintain the structure of your jawbone.
  • Guaranteed to improve your confidence and self-esteem.
  • Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth, so you don’t have to worry about feeling self-conscious about gaps in your smile or a denture slipping out of place while enjoying your favorite foods.
  • Short recovery time
