The dental implants we offer to patients with missing teeth are considered the “gold standard” in tooth replacement because of the many benefits they provide. If you’re unhappy with your smile because you’re missing some teeth, dental implants can restore your smile and improve your oral and overall health.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that’s surgically implanted into the jawbone. After the healing process is completed, which can take several months, an artificial tooth top (crown) is placed on top of the implant to finish the procedure. The result is a very natural looking tooth replacement that looks, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth.

Types Of Implants

There are different procedures for the varying degrees of cases. The three most common procedures include:

Dental Implants Replace One Tooth.Single Tooth Implants: To replace one tooth, a single implant is inserted into the bone to replace the root part of that tooth; a crown then goes on top to simulate an actual tooth.

 

Dental Implants Replace Multiple Teeth.Multiple Tooth Implants: For example, if you are missing three teeth in a row, we can place two implants, one on either side of the gap, and a crown in between. That way, you won't need to use any of your remaining natural teeth as bridge supports, which could weaken them and make them more susceptible to decay.

 

Dental Implants Replace All Teeth.Full Mouth Dental Implants: Implants can also support an entire arch of upper or lower replacement teeth. An entire arch of teeth can be replaced with only 4 implants that hold the bridgework. However, certain cases of extreme deterioration may require up to 5 or 6 implants to support a row of 10 to 12 teeth. 

Dr. Goldberg uses a single tooth implant to replace one missing tooth, multiple tooth implants to replace several teeth, and full mouth dental implants to replace an entire arch of upper or lower teeth. Whether you need a single implant or many, the investment you make in implant dentistry will be well worth it because dental implants are the most cost-effective and advantageous of all tooth replacement options.

 Why Replace Missing Teeth With Implants?

Replacing missing teeth with dental implants can do wonders for your self-esteem as the implants will fill those unsightly gaps in your smile. In addition to improving your appearance, dental implants can also make it much easier to chew food thoroughly before swallowing for better digestion and nutrition.

Another good reason to get dental implants is that they work to preserve the underlying bone which would otherwise deteriorate due to not getting the stimulation it needs from the missing tooth roots. Dental implants can help you avoid looking older due to bone deterioration. Dental Implants can also prevent your existing teeth from shifting out of place to help you avoid the need for orthodontic treatment

Taking Care of Your Dental Implants

There are just two things that can cause a dental implant to loosen once it has successfully fused with the bone: poor oral hygiene and excessive biting force. To help protect and care for your implants, you should brush and floss your teeth daily and visit us for routine checkups and cleanings. It's also important not to clench or grind your teeth or use your teeth as tools.
