A dental implants procedure gives you options when replacing missing teeth. Dental Implants can be used to:
- Replace one or more missing teeth
- Anchor to a non-removable appliance (such as a bridge to replace multiple missing teeth)
- Anchor to a removable appliance (such as a partial or full denture)
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are more permanent than dentures. Instead of temporarily anchoring to other teeth in the mouth, implants anchor permanently into bone just like the root of a tooth. (See image.) Then, a life-like restoration is attached to the firmly-anchored implant.
Because of the permanence of these implants, they are more comfortable in your mouth. A dental implants procedure provides you with stable, beautiful, comfortable, and functional new teeth.
Whether it is to replace a single tooth, or to create a full mouth of secure permanent new teeth, dental implants are a proven, long lasting alternative. Acting as substitute roots, dental implants bond with the bone to form a stable foundation for permanent replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
Are Dental Implants right for you?
The best way to determine whether a patent is a candidate for dental implants is to come in for a consultation. At this appointment the doctor will evaluate the site and create an individualized treatment plan. The doctor will evaluate to see if there is adequate healthy bone to support an implant and to see if a bone graft will be needed to add additional support. You will also learn the cost of dental implants.
