Non-Implant Tooth Replacement Options

It should be noted that not every patient is a viable candidate for dental implants. There are a few other methods of replacing multiple teeth that you should consider before committing to the surgery. For example:

  • A dental bridge made out of two crowns and a number of prosthetic teeth can be used to replace multiple teeth in a row. Traditional bridges are anchored to the abutment teeth on either side of the gap in your mouth.
  • Partial dentures can replace consecutive and nonconsecutive missing teeth no matter where the empty spaces in your mouth are located.
  • Full dentures are reserved for patients who have lost most or all of the teeth in one or both arches.

The Dental Implant Process

If we do determine that dental implants are right for you during a consultation, we can help you plan the process. The first step is preparation, which might mean removing some of your remaining teeth or scheduling bone grafts to ensure that the jaw is dense enough to support the posts. Eventually, your mouth will be ready for the second phase of surgical implant placement. After making small incisions in the gums, the implants are placed directly into the jaw. After that, osseointegration takes place, and the implant gradually fuses with the bone. The final step is to place the crown, bridge, partial, or full denture that you’ll use to bite and chew your food.

Benefits of Implant-Retained Dental Prosthetics

  • Improved Comfort and Stability: Fully integrated dental implants feel just like your natural teeth, and they’ll hold the restorations attached to them firmly in place with no risk of slipping.
  • Enhanced Jaw Health: The stimulation that implants provide helps the jawbone preserve its own density, meaning you won’t have to worry about the long-term consequences of bone loss.
  • Easy Maintenance: Since your implant-retained prosthetic remains in your mouth at all times, you can continue brushing as you always have.
