A Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth
Decay and disease can lead to the loss of multiple teeth. You do not have to live with this, not when there are options available. One of those would be to request
full-mouth dental implants. These implants offer a permanent solution to the problem of missing teeth.
Having a full set of teeth is important for your appearance and self-image, as well as for your dental health. With missing teeth, you may feel self-conscious and unattractive. Then, too, missing teeth hamper eating and speaking. Then, there is the health side of the problem, for gaps in your teeth allows remaining teeth to shift forward, which then fosters loss of bone mass. Let us help you by providing full-mouth reconstruction with an implant-supported bridge.
The Procedure for Implant Surgery
What happens during implant surgery is our dentist places posts made of titanium in the spaces left by missing teeth. These posts serve as replacement tooth roots. After several weeks, the bone in the jaw grows around the posts, creating stability for the crowns, which are then permanently attached to the posts.
Most important of all, your new implants look and function just like your real teeth. The crowns are fashioned in a dental lab after X-rays and impressions are made of your mouth after your gums have healed. This means they fit perfectly. Plus, we match the color to your remaining teeth or to a shade that looks natural with your appearance.
As they’re a permanent part of your mouth, implants don’t shift uncomfortably as dentures can do.
Before placing your implants, we want you to know the dental implant procedure is a highly successful one, with a success rate of 98%. Plus, these implants are permanent; there’s no need to take them out at night to clean. With proper dental hygiene along with regular dental visits, your implants could last upwards of 15 years or more.
