Dental Implants Can Help With Different Levels Of Tooth Loss

Dealing with tooth loss can help patients regain confidence, and it can help them enjoy valuable oral health benefits. If you are missing one tooth, or several tooth, prosthetic dental work can offer serious advantages. With dental implants, you can enjoy permanent support for your restoration, greater function, and even protection for the health of your jaw. Implants can be used to help a patient replace a single tooth, but they are also great for supporting larger restorations. To learn more about how implant support can improve your prosthetic experience – and to make sure you are a good candidate to receive them – set a time to talk with your dentist. 

Making Sure You Can Be Approved For Implant Placement

Before starting the implant placement process, your dentist will perform an initial evaluation to make sure you should move forward with this treatment. There are occasions where other forms of dental care are needed before starting on implant placement, particularly if you are dealing with gum disease. Your overall health needs to be reviewed, too, as you need to be healthy enough to undergo oral surgery.

What To Expect From Your Implant Placement And Restoration

The type of prosthetic you receive will affect your implant placement experience. A single replacement tooth can be supported by one implant, but a set of dentures will require several. There will need to be a waiting period between the placement of the implant (or implants), and the placement of your restoration. During that recovery period, the bone will fuse with the implant. Once it is secure, and your implant is stable, you can receive your restoration.
