Do you currently suffer from missing teeth? Maybe you’ve discussed dental implants with a dentist or a friend. While dental implants can successfully fix a smile, they can do more than replace a single tooth.
How Dental Implants Work
A dental implant generally goes into the jawbone and is a long-term solution to replace a missing tooth. The titanium implant stimulates jawbone growth and ultimately adds to the durability and longevity of the implant. Implants can replace single teeth or support other structures in the mouth, depending on the situation.
Different Types of Dental Implants in Fishers
At Dentistry of Fishers, we can use implants to assist our patients with several tooth replacement situations. Upon initial consultation, we can determine the best use for dental implants. Some examples include:
- A dental implant can replace a single tooth with a titanium implant and dental crown to restore cosmetic appearance and function.
- Dental implants can support a bridge (a row of connected dental crowns). Patients with missing and damaged teeth may benefit from this use of dental implants.
- Patients may benefit from a set of strategically-placed dental implants that support their dentures. These implants can support either removable dentures or fixed options and generally rely on four or six dental implants depending on the patient’s dentures.
