at Dental Associates of Corona can provide any of these methods for restoring missing teeth. Dental implants have fast become one of the most popular choices. In today’s blog, we will tell you why.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an example of some of the most innovative recent technology in dentistry. Biocompatible titanium posts are surgically anchored to your jaw bone. This creates an attachment point for a variety of prosthetic teeth options. A permanently attached dental implant retained denture provides security. It also mimics the structure of natural teeth which prevents a loss of jawbone density. Traditional denture wearers often have to contend with something called facial collapse, where their cheeks sink in due to bone deterioration. They end up with an older appearance and a need to get their dentures adjusted on a regular basis. With dental implants, none of this would be a concern.
Types of Dental Implant Retained Dentures
The types of dental implants recommended would depend on the number of teeth missing, and their position in your mouth. Single dental implants are for replacing one missing tooth. Dental implant bridges utilizes two implant posts which can support a bridge for two or three consecutive missing teeth. All-on-four dentures will consist of four implant posts designed to support an entire arch of teeth. Finally, complete implant bridges are the ticket for patients who have lost all of their teeth either due to poor oral hygiene, disease, or injury.
