Widely considered the gold standard in tooth replacement, dental implants are metal screw-like structures that are surgically placed in the jawbone. Once in place, replacement teeth are attached providing a stable and natural-looking smile.
The natural appearance and function of a lost tooth can be difficult to replace. One of the most effective solutions is dental implants. A dental implant is a sturdy, small titanium post that is surgically placed in the jaw and acts like a natural tooth root. It can be placed into lower or upper jaw bone and with proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. One of the greatest advantages of dental implants is that the titanium becomes part of the natural bone, preventing the deterioration that often comes with tooth loss.
Here at Designer Family Dental, we offer two types of dental implants: Endosteal and All-on-4.
Whether you are missing one tooth or a few teeth, Endosteal Implants can preserve your jaw structure and restore your smile. With this type of implant, the roots of the missing tooth are surgically replaced by posts that are made of titanium. Natural-looking replacement teeth are then attached to the implants. Designer Family Dental offers Endosteal Implants to patients who have lost one or more teeth.
When a full arch of teeth has been lost, we recommend All-on-4 dental implants. This type of implant allows for the placement of all of your top or bottom teeth with only four implants. Best of all, replacement teeth can be attached to your implants immediately.
