Types of Dental Implants
Dr. Michael Kosdon offers many different types of dental implants to beautifully restore smiles affected by missing teeth. Whether you are looking to replace one tooth, a series of teeth, or achieve a full mouth restoration, Dr. Kosdon and his experienced team will work hand-in-hand to develop an individualized treatment plan for rebuilding your smile. At our practice, every dental implant procedure and restoration is custom-tailored to suit your unique needs and cosmetic goals using only the highest-quality materials. We even offer completely metal-free zirconia dental implants. The goal of treatment is always to achieve functional, natural-looking, long-lasting results.
Full Mouth Replacement with Hybrid Dentures
For patients requiring replacement of all their upper and/or lower teeth, Dr. Kosdon and his team can place implants along the jaw to securely fix hybrid dentures in place. Unlike other implant supported dentures that are easily removed from implants, our hybrid dentures are screw retained to offer the highest level of comfort, reliability, stability, and functionality.
Replacement of Multiple Teeth
For patients missing multiple teeth, Dr. Kosdon can create custom crowns to top each implant or an implant-retained bridge that restores several teeth in a row. During your consultation, Dr. Kosdon will take x-rays and perform a full oral examination to determine which dental implant strategy can deliver optimal results.
Single Tooth Replacement
Single missing teeth are always replaced with a single implant and restoration dental crown. As with all other dental implant procedures at our practice, single implants are carefully planned and executed to deliver long-lasting, natural-looking results. Single crown restorations are individually designed and custom-crafted to blend seamlessly with surrounding teeth.
Metal-Free Zirconia Dental Implants
Dental implants made entirely from ceramic zirconia are a metal-free, holistic option for patients considering dental implants. These innovative dental implants offer many health benefits and esthetic advantages when compared to more traditional titanium options. While titanium implants can raise concerns about allergies and biocompatibility issues that could undermine their lifespan, zirconia implants are completely hypoallergenic, biocompatible, and non-corrosive. Furthermore, zirconia implants are completely white in color, eliminating the possibility of dark discoloration along the base of the crown or around the gumline. Additional benefits of zirconia dental implants include:
- High-quality crown esthetics
- Simplified implantation and restoration – both processes are consolidated into a one-stage procedure due to the one-piece design
- Impressive strength and durability
- Decreased risk of infection due to the unique one-piece design
- Shorter recovery and more comfortable healing for many patients

Implant Restoration Aesthetics
The aesthetics of Dr. Kosdon’s dental implant restorations are superior due to the high quality of the materials he chooses to use, combined with the outstanding skill and artistry of his master ceramist. Every crown, bridge and hybrid denture prosthesis is carefully designed to suit your unique physical characteristics and create a look that is beautifully natural. All of our hybrid dentures are created from Zirconia, which offers both unsurpassed durability and aesthetics, while single restorations and bridges are composed of all-ceramic porcelain materials. Dr. Kosdon’s master ceramist is a true artisan who is highly skilled in creating one-of a kind, hand-crafted restorations. These artfully rendered restorations can deliver optimal results that are apparent when your new smile is revealed.
We Value Quality
Dr. Kosdon is dedicated to delivering quality and customized care at every stage of the dental implants process. Rushing dental implants and choosing a practitioner who may not take the time and care to individualize your treatment can be a regrettable decision. Teeth-in-a-day may sound ideal, but in fact dental implant centers and dentists advertising this service may not be telling the whole truth. Any dental implant placement and restoration that is done well, will take more than one day to complete. Oftentimes this type of marketing is simply referring to the temporary implant restorations being ready in one day, which is a service most any dental implant dentist will provide. If you are considering dental implants and desire the highest-quality results, teeth-in-a-day is likely not the right choice for you. When you select Dr. Kosdon for your dental implants you can be assured that he and his team will live up to their commitment to creating a quality outcome that achieves your functional and aesthetic goals.
