Dentures and fixed bridges are both viable ways to fill in the empty spaces, but for many patients, a better solution is available. Dental implants are the best tooth replacement that modern dentistry has to offer. We invite you to learn more about this treatment and how it may be able to bring back the gorgeous, strong smile that you’ve been missing.

Indications for Dental Implants

Are You Missing One Tooth?

To replace a single tooth, you will need a single dental implant. A custom-made crown goes on top of the implant to replace the top part of the tooth. This is among the most straightforward dental implant procedures and can prevent further tooth loss and other oral health complications.

Are You Missing Multiple Teeth?

An implant-retained bridge, which typically consists of two implants and a bridge to go on top of them, may work well for you if you are missing two, three, or more teeth in a row. If your tooth loss has occurred at multiple locations throughout your mouth, an implant-retained partial denture may work better for you.

Are You Missing All Teeth?

It is possible to replace an entire arch of teeth with just four to six dental implants placed at strategic locations throughout the mouth. An implant-retained denture may be either removable or permanently fixed in place. In some cases, it is possible to retrofit a patient’s existing dentures so they can snap onto the implants.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Also keep in mind that each stage of the process, including the placement surgery and your prosthetic teeth, comes with a separate price. Although implants may cost more than other treatment options, they are a worthwhile investment that can provide you with decades of beautiful, functional smiles.
