Securing Your Smile After Tooth Loss
Dental implants in most cases are the optimal option for replacing missing or extracted teeth. The dental implants are small titanium posts that are placed into the bone where the tooth is missing.
To anchor missing teeth and provide a permanent solution for tooth loss, dental implants can be an option for some patients. Dental implants are used as a support for prosthetic teeth such as Bridges, Crowns, and Dentures. A well known and popular implant is the Mini Implant.
Mini Implants are narrower than traditional implants and are becoming a solution for a wider variety of patients. Implants are surgically placed in the lower jaw by drilling wells throughout the jaw line to fit the implant. Once the implant is successfully inserted into the wells, the prosthetic tooth or teeth is placed over the implant and snapped into place, securing the prosthetic tooth or teeth from shifting.
Now more than ever, dental implants match the appearance of the remaining teeth, allowing patients to feel more confident and secure in their smile.
