You’ve probably heard about dental implants, but did you know they can be used for several different types of tooth replacement options? Implants are quickly becoming the go-to choice for dental patients that need to replace their missing teeth. No matter how many teeth are missing, dental implants offer a permanent and exceptional advantage to other types of tooth replacement treatments.
Dental Implant Crowns Look and Feel Like Real Teeth
Just one missing tooth can dramatically impact your smile. Other teeth shift out of place, your chewing patterns are altered, and even your self-confidence can be broken. Thankfully, porcelain crowns can easily be placed over individual implant to permanently replace that missing tooth. Each implant crown is made of porcelain, which means other people won’t even be able to tell that it’s there!
Implants Offer Exceptional Support of Fixed Bridges
Traditional dental bridges can only replace 1-2 teeth at a time, and require healthy teeth adjacent to it. With a fixed implant bridge, as many as 4 or 5 teeth can be replaced at once! Rather than being supported by healthy teeth, an implant bridge is anchored on either end by a titanium implant root.
Replace All of Your Teeth with a Permanent Implant Denture
Did you know that as few as 4 implant roots can be used to permanently anchor a full-mouth implant denture? That’s right – a denture that never comes out! Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures only cover the arch of the jaw, freeing up the roof of your mouth so that you can enjoy eating and talking as comfortably as possible.
Which type of implant restoration is right for you? We invite you to schedule an exam at Summit Dentistry today to find out about these and other options that might just be the opportunity you’ve been looking for.
At Summit Dentistry Dr. Lopez DDS we offer implant restoration services for any Spokane dental implant wearers who may have experienced a chipped or broken implant or who require complete implant replacement. Our implant crowns are constructed of high-grade porcelain that is known for its resistance to cracking. Even though this material is stronger than natural tooth material, occasionally accidents happen. If you have experienced damage to your implant, we urge you to call our Spokane dental office right away.
