What are dental implants and how do they work?

A dental implant or fixture is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, or facial prosthesis. The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration, in which materials such as titanium form an intimate bond to the bone. The implant fixture is first placed so that it is likely to osseointegrate, then a dental prosthetic is added. A variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration before either the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge, or denture) is attached to the implant or an abutment is placed which will hold a dental prosthetic/crown.

All on X full mouth rehabilitation

When someone has suffered tooth loss, decay, or significant damage to their teeth, a full mouth rehabilitation can offer the perfect solution. From crowns and bridges to implants and veneers, all-on-X full-mouth reconstruction uses advanced technology to restore not just the appearance of your teeth, but also their function. This method allows for fewer appointments and a more comfortable experience, resulting in a natural-looking smile that you can feel confident showing off.

In addition to improving aesthetics, full mouth rehabilitation can also alleviate discomfort from jaw pain and improve chewing ability. So whether you’re looking for a cosmetic improvement or seeking relief from dental problems, all-on-X full mouth reconstruction may be the right choice for you.

Single Tooth Implants

When it comes to tooth restoration, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. For patients missing one or more teeth, single implants offer a versatile and long-lasting alternative to traditional bridges and dentures. With a single implant, the dentist places a titanium screw into the gumline in place of the missing tooth root. After a healing period, a custom-made artificial tooth is attached, providing stability and functionality for chewing and speaking.

Another benefit of single implants is that they do not rely on nearby healthy teeth for support, preserving their structure. With proper care and regular checkups, these implants can last for years to come. So for those looking for a dependable option in tooth restoration, single implants might be the right choice.

Implants are the ideal way to replace a lost tooth

Implants are the ideal way to replace a lost tooth, particularly in the front of the mouth, where a gap would be most visible. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums and can chafe if not fitted properly, dental implants become part of your mouth.

Dental implants require a surgical procedure to anchor them to your jaw. The implant fixture, made of titanium or another biocompatible material, is placed in the jaw and topped with a ceramic cap for the appearance of a tooth growing up through the gums.

Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth and even people with no teeth can benefit from them. They are a stronger, more comfortable alternative to dentures. Even better, they don’t require constant adjustment or removal at night.
