Dental Implants are the standard of care when it comes to replacing missing or extracted teeth. Whether you’re missing one tooth or all your teeth, dental implants provide options that are most like natural teeth.
Dental Implant may help your overall quality of life by:
Minimizing oral bone loss
- Preserving your natural facial contour and appearance
- Reducing potential compromise to adjacent healthy teeth
- Providing options to enjoy a wide variety of food again
- Improved nutrition and Convenient hygiene
Dental Implants can support more than just single teeth. Patient’s can have an entire set of teeth held in by several implants; these prostheses are called implant-supported dentures.
Implant supported dentures are secured in place by minimum two or more dental implants by attachments that connect to the implant. The attachments allow you to have control over when your teeth are removed for easy daily care.
Once the dental implant or multiple dental implants are fully healed, they can support a wide variety of dental appliances to replace missing teeth. This includes a dental crown for an individual missing tooth or bridges, partial dentures, and full dentures for major tooth loss.
