Dental implants provide the most unique approach to the replacement of missing teeth available in modern dentistry. Rather than using removable tooth replacements or replacements that require alteration of nearby teeth; implants are stand-alone restorations that can be used to replace single, multiple, or all of your teeth at one time.
Implants are able to support:
- Single-tooth porcelain crowns
- Multiple-tooth dental bridges
- Full-mouth fixed dentures (Also known as “All-on-4” and “All-on-6” dentures)
Implants function and feel just like regular teeth!
Every implant is supported on a titanium root. These roots integrate with the bone the same way your real tooth does since the titanium material encourages new bone formation around it. Once an implant has been placed and fused with new bone, your fixed restoration can be placed on it. Whether it’s an individual crown, a partial restoration, or dentures, it will be designed to match the color and size of your other teeth.
Even implant-retained dentures are slimmer and more streamlined than conventional dentures. The “U” shaped denture also frees the roof of your mouth, making it easier to speak and eat.
