Learn about the different types of procedures that use dental implants as well as the benefits of replacing missing teeth below:
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Provide durability and stability
- Look and feel like natural teeth
- Prevent teeth from shifting
- Preserve the bone structure
- Improve overall oral health
There are numerous ways that lost teeth can be replaced:
Single or Multiple Dental Implants
Dental implants are compromised of titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone to fuse with bone tissue. After a healing period of 3 to 6 months, the post is capped off with an abutment and dental crown. Many patients often forget that they have a dental implant because they look natural and provide a stable restoration.
Dental bridges often “bridge the gap” between natural teeth to replace multiple consecutive missing teeth. Dental implants and adjacent teeth grant support for a patient’s long-term oral health. In addition, a secured bridge evenly distributes teeth for a properly aligned bite.
Dentures and Partials
Patients who are missing multiple teeth or even whole arches benefit greatly from full and partial dentures. When secured with dental implants, patients can speak, bite, and chew with greater ease. Furthermore, dentures help patients maintain their face shape and support the facial muscles.
