Dental implants are an ideal way of restoring the beauty and function of your smile after tooth loss. Dental implants offer permanence, stability, and a natural appearance. They prevent bite collapse and significantly boost your self-confidence.
Dental implants are titanium tooth roots that support pontic or replacement teeth. These artificial tooth roots are placed in holes drilled in the jawbone. After several months, the implants fuse with the bone in a process known as osseointegration. Once healing is complete, the final step involves attaching connector posts and replacement teeth. Depending on the severity of your tooth loss, you can opt for dental crowns or dentures.
Here at Wellesley Dental Arts, we provide different types of implants, including immediate implants, All-On-4®️ implants, and implant-supported dentures.
For patients who’ve lost all teeth or an entire arch, getting an implant for each lost tooth may not be practical. Thankfully, there’s the option of getting All-On-4 dental implants for full upper or lower jaw teeth replacement.
Patients who opt for All-On-4 restoration get four strategically placed implants that support a full dental arch. If you’ve lost all your teeth, you don’t have to settle for dentures. All-On-4 implants leverage on the advantages of implants and dentures, thus giving you the smile you want without subjecting you to extensive or overly invasive treatment.
Gaps in teeth are often unsightly and can put a damper on your self-confidence. Immediate-load dental implants solve these problems by allowing you to get replacement teeth immediately after extraction. Depending on our dentist’s evaluation, you can get immediate dental implants on the same day of your tooth removal or several days later.
If you’ve lost several teeth, and not necessarily a full arch, you can opt for implant-supported dentures. As the name suggests, these are dentures that have the additional reinforcement of titanium tooth roots.
Implant-supported dentures offer more stability compared to conventional dentures.
