All About Dental Implants
Are you missing a tooth or two? Even if you’re missing all of your teeth, we have plenty of dental replacement options to renew and restore your smile. One of our most popular options for replacing missing teeth would be dental implants.
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are a permanent form of dental replacement that can be placed directly into your jaw or skull bone. They can last for years and look and function just like your natural teeth.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants can help keep your jaw bone from experiencing bone loss and can help protect you from gum disease. They also look and function incredibly well and you don’t have to deal with the sliding and shifting that can take place when using removable dentures.
If you are in need of one single replacement tooth then a single implant will be the right choice for you. Single implants are simple, easy, and relatively quick to place. They can fill in the small gaps and openings in your smile and help you to look better than ever before.
Denture Supported Implants
If you’d still like the benefits of dental implants without having anything too permanent, you can get denture supported implants. This procedure will set you up with the base of dental implants but still allows you to pop your dentures on and off. This can help keep you from experiencing bone loss and can give you the flexibility you desire when it comes to dental replacement.
How Are Dental Implants Placed?
The area in question is numbed and then a small incision is made where the false root can be placed. Once the false root is placed and healed, then a new false tooth is placed on top and you are set!
