Replace Missing Teeth Completely
Smiles that are healthy allow us to eat and speak with comfort. Missing teeth causes changes in our eating habits and the ability to perform normal tasks we often take for granted.
Replacing missing teeth is essential in preserving oral health and improving quality of life.
Tooth replacement options with Dental Implants:
Single-unit crowns replace a missing tooth at any point in the smile. If you’re missing even one tooth, replacement could mean preserving alignment and keeping your smile healthy and beautiful.
Implant-supported bridges work best to replace an entire quadrant of missing teeth. Using up to three implants, a supported bridge offers an alternative, permanent solution to a partial denture.
Removable and fixed implant-supported dentures are an innovative way to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Using anywhere from four to eight implants, our dentist can completely restore an entire smile using a reliable, lifelike prosthetic.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
If you’re without teeth for any period of time, the jaw goes through a process of accelerated resorption, atrophying at an accelerated rate. Leaving the space empty also encourages teeth to move out of alignment and affect other teeth. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants is the best option for preserving oral health.
Dental implants are made up of three main parts: the post, the abutment, and the prosthetic. A titanium post is placed directly into the jaw where the missing tooth once was, replacing the tooth’s root with a biocompatible material that fuses to surrounding bone. This replacement acts as the natural tooth root, supporting the surrounding structure and the replacement prosthetic. An abutment secures the prosthetic in place and completes the replacement.
Patients who replace missing teeth using dental implants benefit from improved jaw strength, greater overall health, and longevity when compared with traditional options.
