Losing one or more teeth is unfortunate - and not just because it leaves you with an incomplete smile. In addition to making an individual shy and self-conscious, missing teeth can lead to a loss of function when chewing and speaking as well as a gradual deterioration of jaw bone. The best solution to all these problems is a dental implant for one or more of your teeth.
Today’s implants look exactly like natural teeth - to the point that they tend to collect plaque just like your real ones do. Getting them takes a little time, but once they're in, they’re with you for good; you don’t risk them falling out after a long period of use, as you would with fillings or crowns.
Our implants are perfectly safe, extensively tested and made to match the natural color of your teeth. Months after you get them, you might wake up trying to remember which one of your teeth was implanted - and not being able to figure it out!
This is the most common type of implant because of how reliable it is - and how similar the end result is to the structure of an organic tooth. An endosteal implant’s root is installed directly into your jawbone - and once that’s healed, a post is attached to this part of the implant.
Afterwards, a tooth - or several teeth located on a bridge - can be attached to the implant. Because endosteal implants go directly onto your bone, they can be relied on to stay with you for life!
All-on-four is a revolutionary technique where small titanium “screws” are placed directly into your jawbone - just as it would in endosteal surgery. But while endosteal implants usually support one or several teeth, “all-on-four” attaches a complete set of teeth to bridges supported by just four implants. This is a fast way to get a fixed denture if you’re one of the 35 million Americans missing all their top or bottom teeth!
In other words, restoring a working set of teeth - smile and all - doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. To find out just how easy we make it at Eagle Family Smiles, call us at (610) 458-5165 .
