Types of Dental Implants at McCauley Dental
Ideal for patients who lack sufficient jawbone height, subperiosteal implants are placed under the gum but above the jawbone. This method is less common but can be a valuable alternative for specific cases.
The most commonly used type, endosteal implants, are surgically placed directly into the jawbone. They serve as a sturdy base for replacement teeth and are an excellent choice for most patients with adequate bone density.
All-on-4® is a revolutionary approach that allows for a full arch of teeth to be supported by just four implants. It's an efficient, cost-effective solution for those who need extensive restoration. This technique often avoids the need for bone grafting and can be completed in a shorter timeframe.
Imagine walking in with missing teeth and walking out the same day with a full set! Teeth-in-a-Day offers just that – a rapid transformation with immediate results. This procedure is often paired with the All-on-4® technique, providing a complete smile makeover in a single visit.

Frequently asked questions
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, typically made of titanium, that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They serve as a foundation for replacement teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures, that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
Most people who are in good health and have sufficient jawbone to support an implant can be candidates for dental implants. This includes those who have lost teeth due to decay, gum disease, or injury. A thorough evaluation by Dr. McCauley will determine if dental implants are suitable for you.
Are dental implants painful?
Most patients report feeling minimal discomfort during the implant procedure, especially when compared to a tooth extraction. Local anesthesia and IV sedation are used so you can sleep through your procedure. Some soreness may be expected after the surgery, but this can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
How long does the dental implant process take?
The dental implant process can vary in length, depending on the individual case. After the implant is placed, it usually takes 3 to 6 months for it to fuse with the jawbone (a process known as osseointegration) before the final restoration can be attached.
How successful are dental implants?
Dental implants have a high success rate, typically around 95-98%. With proper care and maintenance, they can last a lifetime.
How do I care for my dental implants?
Dental implants require the same care as natural teeth, including regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups. Good oral hygiene is essential for the long-term success of dental implants.
What are the types of dental implants offered at McCauley Dental?
At McCauley Dental, we offer various types of implants, including endosteal implants (the most common type, placed directly into the jawbone), subperiosteal implants (placed under the gum but above the jawbone), All-on-4® implants, and Teeth-in-a-Day options.
Can dental implants help if I have full dentures?
Yes, dental implants can be used to anchor full dentures, making them more stable and comfortable. This is often done using the All-on-4® technique, where a full arch of teeth is supported by just four implants.
How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of dental implants varies depending on several factors, including the number of implants needed and any additional procedures, such as bone grafting. During your consultation, we’ll provide you with a detailed cost estimate.
Are dental implants covered by insurance?
Dental implant coverage varies by insurance plan. We recommend checking with your insurance provider. Our office can also assist you in understanding your benefits.
