What is teeth replacement with implants?
There are many reasons individuals lose teeth – decay, trauma, or periodontal disease are some of the most common. Regardless of the reason, dental implants are a permanent tooth-replacement option that will look and function naturally.
Dental implants are tiny posts that are placed into the jawbone to act as a replacement for the missing root. Over time, the post will integrate with the jawbone to provide structural stability for the final restoration.
Once the implant is fully integrated with the jawbone, we can finish the restoration with a dental crown, fixed bridge, or overdenture, depending on how many teeth are missing. We even offer full arch implants for individuals missing all the teeth within either the upper or lower arch. Full arch implants involve the placement of several strategic implants that will be used to support an entire arch dental bridge.
Benefits of dental implants
We know you have choices for tooth replacement, so it’s essential to understand the many advantages of dental implants. One of the most important things to consider is the longevity of your restoration. Dental implants behave like a natural tooth root, stimulating the bone surrounding it preventing bone loss and premature facial aging. Moreover, the implant’s stability makes them easier to speak and eat with than with other tooth replacement options.
