Dental implants are tiny titanium devices that look like screws. During a minor surgery, your dentist embeds them in your jawbone. After the initial surgery, your bone cells naturally grow around the implant and eventually bond with the titanium to solidify the implant as a permanent feature in your jaw.
Once your bone has integrated with the implant, your dentist makes a new incision to access the implant and attach an abutment. The abutment is there to support a custom crown or denture. With implant support, crowns and dentures behave like your original teeth. This allows you to bite, chew, and speak without issue.
All Smiles Dental Care offers platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) as part of dental implant treatment. Injections of PRF assist with your bone’s healing after the initial surgery so you can enjoy a quicker treatment and a stronger jaw.
All Smiles Dental Care provides treatment with dental implants in three different ways:
Individual dental implants
A single dental implant can hold onto a custom crown made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to zirconia. It replaces a missing tooth or can anchor a bridge to replace multiple missing teeth.
Four dental implants, spaced evenly across your arch, can support a full denture. This allows you to replace an entire row of teeth without the drawbacks of dentures without implant support.
All-on-6 is similar to All-on-4, but includes two additional implants to support a denture. These six implants keep your jawbone stable while supporting a custom denture.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
If you need to replace one, several, or many missing teeth, dental implants are an exceptional treatment option. They provide a sturdy base for your new restoration (either a crown or denture) and don’t rely on support from otherwise healthy teeth, like a bridge.
Other implant benefits include:
Whether you’re comparing dental implants to bridges, dentures without implant support, or maintaining a gap in your smile, dental implants have clear advantages to each competitor.
