Have you ever wondered what your smile might look like if that missing tooth wasn’t missing? There are several ways to fill that gap with a “tooth” that looks and feels exactly like your other teeth.
An increasingly popular way to restore missing teeth is through dental implants. These are used as an alternative to dentures and bridges. Why? Because they have many advantages, including their completely natural appearance, their convenience and their ability to maintain bone mass – a quality that makes additional tooth loss far less likely.
Dental Implants are made up of a titanium screw and a post that is covered with a crown, bridge or denture. We place the implant into the jawbone where it replaces the tooth root. After several months, the implant attaches to the bone, so it now looks and “acts” just like a natural tooth.
A patient needs to be evaluated to ensure there is enough bone available to secure the implant. Impressions are taken to provide the necessary mold for a customized implant.
If a person has only one missing tooth, it can be replaced & restored with single tooth implant treatment.
If all the teeth are missing, the dentist will suggest you to go for All on 4 or All on 6 dental implants depending on the condition of your jaw.
Overdentures are Implant Supported dentures. which fix over the . With this treatment, the overdenture engages retentive attachments on a metal bar that connects to implants, which are placed into your upper and/or lower jaw. The overdenture, which is removable, is secured to the bar through attachments fabricated directly into the denture.
Overdentures are Implant Supported dentures which are removable appliances that include prosthetic teeth. Unlike conventional dentures, upper overdentures are designed without the palate prosthesis which offers better comfort, speech and taste. For the additional support, a partial metal framework is incorporated to the overdenture and provides an extra measure of durability.
