What is an implant?
Implants are made from titanium and now ceramics with a special coating and replaces the root of a missing tooth. Bone then actually grows on to the implant over a few months time. A healing cap is placed on the implant or sometimes a temporary crown is placed during healing. After about 4 months the implant is ready to be restored with an implant crown.
Implants can replace an existing tooth or teeth, sometimes an implant can be placed at the time a tooth is taken out.
Daniel Huigens DDS will also refer you to a specialist for more complicated implants requiring an oral surgeon.
"4 on 4" is a term you may have been hearing on the tv or radio where 4 or more implants are placed to secure a denture. Most cases a temporary denture is worn until the implants heal.
