A dental bridge replaces one or more teeth that are missing. A traditional dental bridge typically anchors to a tooth on either side of the gap for support. When using an implant-supported bridge, it can stand alone, not relying on surrounding teeth. This allows the bridge to last longer as it will not be at risk when surrounding teeth are damaged or require dental care. If you are missing teeth and would like to learn more about implant-supported bridges, contact our office to schedule your visit today!
All-On-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants allow you to replace all of your teeth on the upper or lower jaw. The entire arch of teeth is secured onto as few as four dental implants that are strategically placed across the jawline. All-on-4 dental implants are not removable and are a permanent tooth replacement. With proper upkeep and care, all-on-4 dental implants are made to last for several years! If you are interested in all-on-4 implants, call our team today!
Removable dentures can be secured with the help of dental implants! Traditional dentures may fit incorrectly over time as the jawbone continues to weaken. With implant-supported dentures, the denture will continue to fit well with time as it uses the dental implants for security and support as well as to stimulate the jaw bone. Implant-supported dentures are a better option than single implants when replacing all of the teeth on the upper or lower jaw because they require less implants to be placed. Implant-supported dentures are a great way to get back your smile, especially if you are already comfortable with dentures!
Prepping for Dental Implants with Bone Grafting
Prior to the placement of dental implants, some patients require bone grafting. This treatment allows the jaw bone to be able to properly support the implant. Bone grafting adds to the structure of the jaw bone to strengthen it and provide volume. If bone grafting is needed prior to the placement of your dental implants, your dentist will discuss your treatment options and answer any questions you may have.
