When you lose a tooth or teeth, it can be very embarrassing. You may feel self-conscious. Dentures and bridges used to be the solution, but modern cosmetic dentistry offers dental implants that feel and function like your own teeth. Cosmetic prosthetic teeth are secured in your mouth with implants. Dental implants can replace one tooth up to the entire arch of teeth. They are the complete solution.
Implants last a lifetime, which is just one benefit over dentures. Dental implants are an investment in your oral health as well as your overall well-being. You need teeth to eat healthy foods, such as proteins, nuts, fruits and vegetables. Your teeth are vital to communication. Then there is the aesthetic appeal of implants. When you have natural looking teeth, you simply feel more confident. Dental implants don’t take any adhesives or cleaners. You do need to keep up with regular dental care.
When you lose one tooth, whether it was knocked out or lost from disease, a single dental implant can replace it. It looks and functions just like the rest of your natural tooth, so you don’t feel self-conscious. Implants prevent bone loss in the jaw because the implant actually integrates with the bone. You maintain facial structure, which helps you maintain a youthful appearance and improves your oral health.
Multiple dental implants are when you have more than one tooth that needs to be replaced, but you also have surrounding teeth that are still healthy. Two or more fixtures can be implanted, without having to remove your natural teeth. Multiple dental implants do not work for everyone, so you’ll need to talk to your dentist.
Full Upper and/or Lower Arch
Full dental implants are similar to dentures that replace the entire arch of teeth but are securely attached to your jaw with fixtures. You can get a full upper arch, a full lower arch or both. These dental implants act just like teeth. They don’t move or need to be taken out to clean. You brush and floss just like you would your natural teeth.
