Thanks to advances in dentistry, we now have more effective methods than ever for replacing teeth that have been lost. This is in great part due to advancements in dental implants. A dental implant is a titanium metal screw-like structure that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. A dental implant can be used for supporting a single tooth, or it can support multiple new teeth.
Dental implants are effective because they have the ability to function just like natural tooth roots. They feel natural and keep replacement teeth secure. Another significant benefit of dental implants is that the titanium has the ability to fuse with the jawbone preventing the bone deterioration associated with tooth loss.
At Premier Dental Spa, we offer Endosteal Implants and All-on-4 Implants.
Endosteal implants consist of two parts. The first is the titanium screw foundation that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. The second is an attached supporting post that will secure the replacement teeth. These versatile implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth.
All-on-4 implants can be used when an entire arch of teeth needs to be replaced. A complete row of natural-looking replacement teeth can be supported using just four strategically placed implants. This reduces recovery time, and temporary teeth can be placed immediately.
