You don’t have to live with the aesthetic, functional, and health consequences of missing teeth. With dental implants, you can have a second chance at a beautiful smile and outstanding oral health.
If you are missing a single tooth, there are multiple replacement options available to you, including a traditional fixed bridge that is attached to the natural teeth adjacent to the gap. However, dental implants offer the significant advantage of replacing your missing tooth with a strong, natural-looking dental crown that does not rely on healthy teeth for support. Dr. Glenn can place a single dental implant - a titanium post that integrates with the jawbone to act as an artificial tooth root - in the site once occupied by the missing tooth. Once the implant and the bone have fused together, Dr. Glenn tops the implant with a custom-crafted crown, completing the smile and restoring full function to the mouth.
In cases in which multiple consecutive teeth are missing, Dr. Glenn can place two or more implants to secure a dental bridge. Dental bridges are composed of up to three replacement teeth secured on either end by dental crowns. By attaching these crowns to dental implants, the gap in the mouth will be filled - without having to file down natural teeth to accommodate the crowns.
Dental implants provide a far superior alternative to traditional removable dentures to patients who are missing most or all of the teeth on their upper arch, lower arch, or both arches. Unlike removable dentures, implant-supported dentures cannot shift or slip out of place, which eliminates the problems many denture wearers have with chewing, biting, and speaking. Imagine being able to eat, speak, smile, and laugh with ease and confidence once again. With implant-supported dentures, this dream can become a reality.
Whether you are replacing a single tooth or every tooth in your mouth, dental implants offer a host of oral health benefits that other tooth restorations simply cannot match. Among these benefits, implant-supported restorations:
