Dental Implants

Dental Implants, Implant Dentures & Bridges and All on 4

Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth.

 

The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed and the gums are sutured, pay attention to your post-op instructions.

Types of Dental Implants

Single Implant: Implants can be used to replace single missing teeth. After the implant has been placed a tooth is then attached to the top of the implant. If properly maintained, implants can last a lifetime and are the best tooth replacement option available.

Multiple Implants: If you are missing several teeth multiple implants can be placed. Often times this is your best option when multiple teeth are missing or the adjacent teeth are healthy.

Implant Supported Dentures: With implants, dentures can be tightly secured eliminating the need for denture adhesives. Implants can allow dentures to not only feel great but to also function very similarly to natural teeth. Various types of implant supported dentures exist.

All on 4 or 6 Denture: Generally up to 6 implants are placed and used to secure a denture. You will get the look and function of a full arch of teeth without the need to replace every missing tooth with an implant. You can brush the denture just like natural teeth, and it will be removed twice a year by the dentist to be professionally cleaned.

Implant Retained Dentures: This type of denture still uses implants to help hold them in, however they can be removed by the patient to be cleaned on a daily basis. We can help you decide what type is best for you.
