Single or Multiple Missing Teeth Replacement

Are you confused whether you should get a dental implant or not?  Let’s take a look at how dental implants could be a beneficial treatment option.

Dental implants involve a surgical procedure to be placed in the bone. No surgery is entirely risk-free; hence, we adhere to an evidence based approach to risk assessment. 

Dental implants are a different way of replacing lost teeth compared to other treatments because they are fixed in your jaw bone. As a result, they function more like a natural tooth. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch of missing teeth . An implant can also be used to secure dentures.

At Coons Family Dental, dental implants are a reliable treatment for replacing single or multiple missing teeth. We take all necessary steps to mitigate complications and improve treatment outcomes.

At your first appointment, our dental team will evaluate the condition of your gum and bone. After proper planning, a dental implant is placed into the bone and left to heal for a period of time.

It will take three to four months for the implant to heal and integrate with the bone. After the healing period, your dentist will access the implant and take impressions for a custom dental implant crown to be fabricated. Two to three weeks later a porcelain tooth will be attached to the implant and permanently fixed in place.

After the procedure and follow-up visits, you will be able to smile and chew naturally. Have you been ready for a dental implant? Contact us for thorough and quality service!

FAQs

Is a dental implant safe?

Yes. Dental implants are a predictable and safe procedure. There are circumstances that prohibit dental implants from being an option and implants are not without complications. Dentists have been placing implants for many years and more and more patients are agreeing that it is the best option to replace missing teeth.

How long does a dental implant procedure take?

After the first exam and consultation, the entire dental implant process takes an average of 4-8 months. The healing time is different for every patient and can even take up to a year.

What is a better option: an implant or a bridge?

A dental implant and dental bridge are great options to replace single or multiple missing teeth. An implant is usually the best option because it most closely resembles a natural tooth. However, some missing tooth locations do not have adequate bone to support a dental implant and those locations are well served with a dental bridge.

First of all, it replaces missing teeth and restores your smile to the way it was naturally designed to appear and function. They support the bone as well as the adjacent and opposing teeth to maintain proper tooth position and improve the longevity of your dental health. Implants can also last for many decades and even a lifetime.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Anyone who is missing single or multiple teeth is a candidate for a dental implant. The dentists talk with their patients and give suggestions about the treatment.

How long do implants last?

Like your natural teeth, dental implants can last for a lifetime if you maintain them properly. Your dentist will guide you to maintain and develop behaviors and habits that will promote longevity.
