Full Mouth Dental Implants
In 2021, Dr. Kamel and Woodbury Dental Arts was recognized as a Nobel Biocare™ All-on-4® Center of Excellence. That means Dr. Kamel has a high level of experience and training in the All-on-4 full arch dental protocol. Utilizing advanced techniques, Dr. Kamel strategically places a minimum of four implants per arch in the most stable parts of your jawbone to ensure the highest level of function and comfort for your new teeth. All-on-4 to All-on-X allows tooth extraction, implant surgery and fitting of a temporary bridge printed with our 3D printer, in one day. During the three to six months it takes dental implants fuse with the underlying bone in a process called osseointegration, Dr. Kamel may make adjustments to your temporary prosthesis. After the implants have fully integrated, you’ll return to our practice for placement of your beautiful permanent zirconia prosthesis.
Zygomatic Dental Implants
If you’ve lost teeth and have been told you aren’t a candidate for dental implants due to severe bone resorption (loss) in your upper jaw, you may have given up hope on a permanent fix for your smile. The good news is that you may be an ideal candidate for zygomatic dental implants in Woodbury, MN. Unlike conventional dental implants that are secured in the jawbone, zygomatic dental implants are surgically placed in the zygomatic bone (cheekbone). This strong and stable facial bone enables proper fusion of dental implants without the need for bone grafting or sinus lifts, making it possible for patients with severe bone loss to fully restore their smiles.
Woodbury Dental Arts was chosen by Nobel Biocare "Center of Excellence for All on 4" for 2022!
