Dental implant therapy should start at Prosthodontist.
A dental implant takes the place of the missing tooth’s root, and helps prevent negative consequences of missing teeth. Like the natural root, a dental implant provides the foundation for a dental crown.
An all-ceramic or metal ceramic dental crown and dental bridge, secured to a dental implant, provides a complete and beautiful solution for improving your smile. If you’re missing multiple teeth, a dental implant bridge is highly recommended.
A Dental Bridge on Dental Implants can prevent:
- The teeth adjacent to the missing teeth from changing position to fill the gap;
- Your jawbone from shrinking, making your face appear prematurely older because the missing teeth’s roots are also missing; and, An unattractive smile, if the missing teeth show when you smile.
- If you’re tired of your current dentures moving around in your mouth, and think denture adhesives are a nuisance and only offer short term solutions.
- A fixed denture replacement solution consists of a dental implant bridge (sometimes called permanent dentures) that is supported by four or more dental implants. By using dental implants to secure the permanent dentures, the need for denture adhesive is a thing of the past. Because the dental implants function like the natural roots, the permanent dentures will feel very much like your natural teeth did.
