Biocompatible Dental Implants
When it comes to replacing lost teeth, bridges and dentures have long been the go-to solution for most patients. Today, they remain a lifeline for people who have suffered tooth loss to regain their bite function and restore the appearance of their smiles. However, many modern bridges and dentures come with one key difference—the support of biocompatible dental implants that replace the functions of your lost teeth roots. Dental implants, which are small posts that your dentist can place within your jawbone, are designed to support a replacement crown, bridge, or denture. By mimicking your teeth roots, implants allow you to replace lost teeth without needing clasps or adhesives to support your prosthetic.
New Teeth, Complete with Roots
Dental implants offer a wide variety of benefits, some of which are immediate (like the comfort and stability of anchored replacement teeth) while others are more subtle. For instance, when you lose teeth roots, your jawbone loses some of the stimulation that signals your body to send it enough nutrients. Missing teeth roots equal fewer nutrients, which eventually leads to a weaker jawbone and an increased risk of losing more teeth. By relying on dental implants, your replacement teeth can do more than just fill out your smile; they can preserve its health and integrity for the rest of your life.
Dental Implant Procedures
In addition to placing dental implant posts in our office, which saves you from having to visit multiple offices to restore your smile, we also perform many prerequisite procedures that may be required before implant placement. For instance, if you experience a weakened jawbone, then Dr. Bailey can suggest jawbone grafting or ridge augmentation to strengthen it so that your jawbone can successfully support the implant posts. For patients who quality, we also offer same-day implants, which allow us to place a temporary restoration on your implant posts immediately after they’ve been placed.
