Are you embarrassed by missing teeth or experiencing difficulties chewing, trouble speaking, or discomfort? Designed to fit the needs of the modern dental patient, dental implants may be the long-lasting solution you’ve been searching for. Capable of lasting a lifetime with proper maintenance, dental implants can help you maintain proper oral health and give your smile a more complete look. They are placed directly into the jaw in order to stimulate the jawbone when chewing and prevent atrophy and improve the overall health of your smile. Proper dental implants can increase the power of your bite and are considerably more stable than similar dental fixtures.
During dental implant surgery, tooth roots are replaced with metal, screw-like posts. As a welcome alternative to dentures, how dental implant surgery is performed varies depending on the condition of the patient’s jawbone and the type of implant they need. Dental implant surgery requires the bone to heal around the implant which increases stability. Andler Dental is able to make this procedure as minimally invasive as possible utilizing our 3D digital x-rays. This 3D imaging tool allows our doctors to plan the entire implant procedure accurately and effectively. That way, when any dental instruments are used for the placement, the team already knows everything they need about the structure of your bone and the condition of the area where the implant will be placed.
While dental implants provide great support and stability, there are a variety of other benefits that come with them.
If you have lost your natural teeth, you may experience issues such as chewing your food properly, speaking clearly, or remaining teeth shifting in your mouth. Implant retained dentures, which are also called All-on-4 dentures, can be used to replace both missing upper and lower teeth and to give you a secure, natural-looking smile that’s more comfortable and convenient than traditional dentures. Multiple anchor points allow for more security when eating, and keeping your mouth’s supportive structures engaged helps to preserve both function and appearance.
