As an adult, if you’re experiencing tooth loss from decay or an injury, you aren’t alone. Millions of Americans suffer from some kind of problem that requires the need for dental work. One option that is becoming more popular is dental implants as a way to replace missing teeth. Whether you need a single tooth replaced or require dentures to make life more enjoyable, our office is happy to provide an examination and consultation to explore your options. Dental implants offer many benefits over other types of dental care. They restore your natural teeth and prevent further bone loss, helping you appear much younger and healthy. Here are two options for dental implants.
Implant Supported Dentures
Instead of using denture paste to make sure your dentures stay put, implant supported dentures use small titanium posts placed in the jaw to secure the teeth. This provides much more stability and confidence when eating and talking. They are more comfortable than traditional dentures, without the mess of denture creams or gels. There’s no additional maintenance, just brush your teeth like you would do if you had your own teeth.
Bridge Supported by Dental Implants
If you’re just missing a few teeth, it’s possible to use the implant method to replace one tooth or a section. Single teeth are implanted individually into the jaw, while a bridge uses your own teeth and special anchors to hold it in place. Using today’s technology, your mouth heals quicker after surgery, allowing you to get back to your routine quicker.
