Understanding Your Options with Dental Implants
If you are suffering from loose, uncomfortable dentures or missing, infected or damaged teeth, dental implants may be the ideal solution to restore your smile. Many dental implant options are available. Read on to discover which one may be right for you.
If you have damaged or lost a single tooth because of periodontal disease, injury or other reason, a natural-looking and secure dental implant can restore the function and balance of your smile.
A dental implant has three individual components. First, a small post called a root implant is placed in the empty bone socket of the missing tooth. Next, a connector post is securely placed to support the third component, a custom-made crown that looks and feels just like your natural tooth.
Dental implants are also an effective solution if you are missing multiple teeth. Unlike bridges, dental implants do require grinding down your healthy teeth for support. Implants are also more comfortable, secure and durable than dentures, making them a great option for replacing multiple teeth.
The small size of mini implants makes them an excellent choice for restoring pre-molars, frontal teeth and small teeth. About the size of a toothpick’s diameter, mini implants are also ideal for patients who don’t have the bone structure to support larger dental implants.
This innovative treatment concept replaces missing teeth using a full dental bridge supported by four dental implants. This option is cost-effective and reduces the need for bone grafting to increase bone volume.
If you can’t wait to restore your smile, consider implants in a day. This revolutionary procedure can improve your quality of life and appearance in just one day.
