Filling The Gap Choosing Dental Implants

Posted on 5/9/2022 by Edward I Jutkowitz, DMD, PC
Filling The Gap Choosing Dental ImplantsAfter losing your teeth, it is paramount you consider replacing them. There is no other dental restoration able to perform like your natural teeth as dental implants. Many people are considering dental implants over conventional choices such as dental bridges or partial dentures. And the reason is that dental implants are the best tooth-replacement choice that modern dental care has today.

Choosing Dental Implants

Periodontists can replace missing teeth whether a single tooth or a full arch. Rather than using removable partial dentures or a bridge, a periodontist can restore a single tooth by installing a single implant. The dental professional anchors a cosmetic crown directly above the implant. The good thing with dental implants is that the new tooth you get blends with the neighboring teeth. As such, you have an almost indistinguishable tooth that resembles the other teeth within your mouth.

Sometimes, though, you may need to get the surrounding teeth removed and replaced as well. When this is the case, implant-supported dentures provide a hybrid restoration like the All-on-4 or an extended bridge that you can consider. This procedure uses implants placed strategically to anchor the fixed prosthesis. When you receive All-on-4, you don't need to wear removable dentures. All-on-4 utilizes as few as four posts or implants to restore the entire adjacent teeth within that arch.

If you are not sure what implants work for you, talk to us. Our implant specialist will discuss the options we have to see that you have the right implants. Many factors come into play when selecting implants, including the number of teeth to be replaced as well as your jawbone density and the presence of underlying conditions like gum disease, diabetes, or even heart disease. Reserve your appointment with our team today to begin your journey to having a beautiful, functional smile.
