At East Burn Dentistry and Implants, we utilize dental implant surgery for replacing missing teeth. When you have a missing tooth, you may not be able to smile confidently or enjoy your favorite food as well. Not only that, if you have missing teeth, it could also lead to several dental complications, such as bone loss or resorption. If a tooth falls out and isn’t replaced, the teeth in the surrounding areas of the jawbone can collapse inward. This can affect your bone structure, regular oral hygiene, and also bone density.
Dental implant surgery is a very effective tooth replacement option through which you can restore your smile. The results are long-lasting and can be customized to fit your smile perfectly. After getting implants, they will feel, function, and look just like your natural teeth.
The types of dental implants procedures include:
Dental Implants:Dental implants act as a permanent solution for missing teeth and help patients to regain a beautiful, natural-looking smile. They work just like your natural teeth and also allow you to enjoy your favorite food. A dental implant comprises three steps that include: a dental implant, abutment, and a dental crown.
All-On-4 Dental Implants: For patients who are missing the majority of, or all of their natural lower teeth, All-On-4 dental implants act as a permanent tooth replacement solution. Four anchor screws are used in All-On-4 dental implants to hold the dental implants securely. An All-On-4 dental implant is a procedure that is less invasive and replaces all the teeth of the lower jaw in just one simple dental implant procedure.
All-On-6 Dental Implants: Patients who suffer from missing teeth in the lower arch of the jawbone could opt for All-On-6 dental implants. Six anchor screws are used in All-On-6 dental implants to secure a full set of teeth to six dental implants firmly. An All-On-6 dental implant is a less invasive tooth replacement option that is more comfortable and has a quicker recovery time.
Implant Dentures: Implant dentures are usually referred to as snap-on dentures or implant-supported dentures. These dentures are in the category of overdentures that are held securely in place by using several dental implants. Durable dental implants hold implant-supported dentures in place for stability to maintain the density of jawbone and facial shape.
