A smile is contagious. It’s also a mood booster, stress reliever, and a universal symbol. However, you may find yourself not smiling if you have missing, broken, or decayed teeth, or have a removable dental device.
If you experience any of the above, then dental implants may be the right choice for you.
Dental implants work by replacing a missing tooth or teeth with a prosthesis. The process is fairly simple: a medical-grade titanium post, called the implant, is surgically placed into the jaw bone, which integrates with your natural bone over the course of several weeks. This process is called osseointegration and is an essential part in the dental implant process. In select situations, an abutment and a temporary crown can be secured in place at the same time as implant placement, so you can leave our office with an immediately restored smile.
If you have several missing, broken, or decaying teeth, your oral surgeon may advise the All-on-4® Treatment Concept. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is a type of dental implant procedure that is ideal for those who have multiple teeth issues to result in full-arch restoration. It is a popular solution that provides quick, long-term results for an entire set of teeth. Unlike a single dental implant, which replaces each individual tooth and tooth root, All-on-4® Treatment Concept replaces all of your upper or lower teeth in a single visit. With a short surgical procedure and a minimal recovery period, many All-on-4® Treatment Concept patients are happy with their secure, natural-looking, permanent results.
Being able to express yourself comfortably, eat the foods you love, and not worry about a detachable dental prosthesis falling out is certainly something to smile about. Dental implants offer a fast and long-lasting solution.
