Dental implants are prosthetic tooth replacements that restore both the crown portion that becomes part of your natural smile and the root that was previously lost. This root portion extends into the bone tissue and is essential for protecting many long-term functions of your tooth. Dental implants work to restore these functions, including bone stimulation and blood flow. To replace your tooth, our dental office makes use of the Bio-Nobel Implant System, highly regarded as one of the best tooth replacement options you can receive.
The titanium post that integrates with your bone tissue is biocompatible with your organic structures. This means it will effectively bond and fuse with your tissue, ensuring that it remains stable for decades to come and improve the biting strength of your jaw. This means chewing tough or hard foods feels as natural as it did when you had your natural tooth. Blood flow is also restored following your treatment, which directly influences your facial elasticity and prevents premature sagging. These are only a few of the most notable benefits you can expect from dental implants.
Whether you are missing a single tooth or you need to have a full mouth reconstruction to replace all the teeth in your smile, dental implants are one of the most customizable solutions in dentistry. During your consultation, we’ll be better able to confirm how many teeth you can replace and how that process will unfold. Below, you can get a quick preview of what to expect.
A single titanium implant is placed into the jaw, then given several months of time to heal. From there, an abutment is placed, which is a small connector designed to provide stability to the permanent restoration. Finally, a crown is placed on top. This crown is always made from high-quality porcelain for the best aesthetics possible.
One of the other benefits of dental implants is the fact that they do not require removal of existing teeth just for them to be supported (like dental bridges.) This means single teeth as well as multiple consecutive teeth can be held entirely with implant posts. In most cases, at least two implants are enough to hold two or more crowns fused together.
Just because you’re missing all the teeth in your smile doesn’t mean that dental implants can’t get the job done. Whether you choose a traditional implant-retained denture or the All-On-4® procedure, which utilizes just four implants to hold an entire arch of replacement teeth, we’ll be ready to explain each phase of treatment in great detail, answer all your questions, and ensure your future smile looks and feels natural in every single way.
