What are Dental Implants?
Whether you’re just missing one tooth or both of your full arches, dental implants can permanently replace your missing teeth. Unlike dentures, implants securely attach to your jawbone using metal posts. Custom-made crowns attach to the posts to mimic the look and feel of your natural teeth.
There are three main types of dental implants:
- Single tooth
The type of dental implants you need depends on how many teeth you’re missing, your preferences, and your overall dental health. We can complete a full assessment to determine the best course of treatment for your needs.
When to Get Dental Implants
Once your permanent teeth become too decayed to save, fall out on their own, or otherwise need replacement, you can start thinking about getting dental implants. By getting the implants done early, you can avoid having trouble eating, drinking, and speaking clearly. Plus, you can retain your winning smile and preserve your self-confidence.
Furthermore, getting implant dentistry soon after losing your tooth helps protect the integrity of your jawbone. The bony material under each tooth starts to deteriorate as soon as the root leaves the socket. If too much time passes, you may need a bone graft before getting implants.
