A dental implant is a tiny, screw-like post that is surgically placed in the bone of your jaw where a natural tooth has been lost. Following placement, the bone tissue in the jaw begins to fuse with the implant. This process is known as osseointegration. When healing is complete, a custom restoration is affixed to the implant to complete the procedure.
Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth in a way that closely mimics the structure of a natural tooth. Because the jaw is stimulated by the implant – which effectively acts as a new tooth root – the tissue there remains strong and maintains its shape. Your dental implants are capable of supporting a single crown, a custom bridge, or a full arch of teeth in the form of an implant-retained denture.
A bridge is comprised of one or more replacement teeth called pontics, each of which is carefully modeled to look and feel like one of your natural teeth. The bridge is held in place by crowns that are affixed to healthy teeth located on either side of the gap. Bridges help patients who are missing teeth regain clear speech and the ability to chew properly.
A partial denture is a removable dental prosthetic that fills the gaps in your smile that are left behind when you lose multiple teeth. They are typically comprised of a metal framework that supports replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored base.
A full denture (also known as a complete denture) is a removable prosthetic that is designed to replace all of the teeth in a single arch.
Both partial and full dentures are custom-crafted to fit the patient's unique jaw shape and size as well as the ridges that make up their gums. The materials used today are incredibly lifelike, allowing patients to enjoy a comfortable and natural-looking smile.
