Whether you are looking to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth, dental implants can achieve a realistic and permanent solution. Dental implants preserve your jaw bone and restore your bite while staying firmly in place. While other options for replacing missing teeth are successful, they can come with a variety of complications and drawbacks. Dr. Rob Heller is a prosthodontist providing patients effective tooth replacement solutions with teeth implants in Lewis Center, OH
Replacing a single missing tooth can be most authentically accomplished with a single dental implant. The post of the implant mimics the root of your tooth while the dental crown looks and functions just like your natural tooth, requiring no additional maintenance.
Whether you are missing one or many teeth, there are options for you. Single missing teeth are often replaced by a bridge, which many times requires cutting away healthy tooth structure on each tooth next to the missing one. Your best option is a dental implant. This won't require cutting away healthy teeth and will preserve the bone. Call us today and we discuss your full treatment options!
We hear this all of the time. But really it is a body part and all of your teeth have certain functions. When we lose "just" one tooth the fuctions are placed on the others, which can only handle the load for a period of time then... you will have two missing teeth and the cascade doesn't stop!
Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth. The implant is surgically placed in your jaw where a tooth has been lost. The implant post will fuse to the jaw bone in a process called osseointegration, thus saving and stabilizing the bone. An abutment is placed on top of the implant post at the gum line where a permanent crown will eventually be attached. The post of the implant acts like the root of a tooth while the crown looks, feels, and functions like your other natural teeth.
Dental implants and mini dental implants can be used to replace multiple missing teeth. If you are without many of your teeth, you may not need an implant at every site where a tooth has been lost. Dental implants can be used in multiples to anchor a dental bridge or even hold a set of dentures securely in place.
