If you have missing teeth, the good news is that modern dental healthcare has many different ways of restoring both the health and appearance of your smile.
A common way to achieve this is through a dental implant, which involves adding a metal screw-like base into the jaw to fill in the gap and attach a crown on top that will look and function just like one of your natural teeth. But are dental implants right for you?
Dental implants can lead to a lot of different benefits, which is why many dentists recommend them:
If you have one or two missing teeth, the dentist will most likely recommend single implants that will just fill in the gaps in your teeth and restore their appearance.
However, some patients who have more expensive damage might require full arch implants to resolve all their problems. Instead of just one implant, full-arch ones will implant 4 metal screws into the jawbone, and attach a full-arch dental prosthetic on top. This will improve the appearance of your entire smile, and as with single implants, it’s a durable, long-term solution for your oral health.
There are many benefits of dental implants, no matter which ones you end up needing. To fully understand if dental implants are a good fit for you and your dental health, you should have a chat with our specialists at Mestichelli Barnes Dental Associates.
