For a Great New Smile, Explore Your Dental Implant Options

You don’t have to miss out on life just because you’re missing a few teeth. Modern dental implants can replace everything from single teeth to entire missing arches. Titanium implants, which are lightweight, strong and biocompatible, have been used since the 1970s with great success and can replace almost any missing tooth. If there isn’t enough bone to support an implant, grafts or procedures to generate bone are often possible. Implants are placed into your jawbone below the gum. After the area heals, and the implant attaches to the living bone, an abutment extension is added. This will eventually hold the completed permanent crown, which is custom-made to match your natural teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implant Surgery

  • Implants allow you to eat your favorite foods again.
  • They are the only proven method of preventing bone loss due to missing teeth, which leads to the appearance of premature aging.
  • Implant-supported prosthetic devices are proven to increase comfort.
  • Unlike standard dental bridge placement, the implantation process does not involve disturbing or weakening healthy, adjacent teeth.
  • Implants look virtually identical to natural teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures and More

Various types of implant procedures can address your specific needs. The same implantation process used for replacing single teeth can also be used on multiple teeth to provide support for custom bridges. It ensures stability while halting bone loss. Implant treatment options also include both fixed and removable implant dentures. To replace all lower teeth with a full lower denture, five or more implants are placed to provide support. Six or more can anchor a full upper denture. Existing dentures can be altered so that they can be worn during the healing process. Removable dentures snap or clip into place and can be removed for cleaning. Fixed dentures can only be removed by your dentist.
